Attention:

A four-digit feature code is used to specify a component that is configurable in the IBM configurators, the eBusiness Configurator (eConfig) and the IBM Web-based Hardware Configurator, used in US and Canada. Options that do not have feature codes cannot be integrated by IBM into a system using these IBM configurators. To purchase options separately, refer to the option part number provided in this document.

Notes:

  1. Model numbers provided are worldwide generally available variant (GAV) model numbers which are not orderable as listed and need to be modified by country. The U.S. GAV model numbers use the following nomenclature: xxU. For example, the U.S. orderable part number for 3837-A4Y is 3837-A4U. See the product specific Official IBM announcement letter for other country-specific GAV model numbers. GAV to MTM mapping for A.P. Geographies follow the same pattern. Substitute the last character with the country- specific designator.
  2. RC abbreviation indicates that the US models ship standard with a rack cord. Models without rack cords will be indicated with a hyphen.
  3. Withdrawal dates are provided for U.S. and Canada only. Business Partner Inventory may be available.
  4. 900W power supply.
  5. 1400W power supply.
