Re: VNX detailed part numbers

You can download the VNX Procedure Generator from the support page. It includes part guides for all VNX systems. I downloaded it a couple of days ago and tried. I suppose the attached document should contain what you are looking for.

Thanks for replies.

I don't need to know detailed parts of an DPE like it's processor and so on. Actually I want something like an LOM. For example there are four types of DPE. which one indicates that it is in a rack fully cabled. Do I need to order power cables and rail kits too? and ...

Re: VNX detailed part numbers


you seem to be a partner and mean sales part numbers and not technical part numbers.

Sales part number contain mostly letters and look like this:

V4-2S6F-200 VNX 200GB SSD 25x2.5 DPE/DAE

Engineering part numbers are all numbers like:

005049622 (same disk – 200 GB SSD)

Typically you don’t need that – you order a system in Channel Express and it picks the correct sales part numbers for your config.

In our systems you don’t order part-by-part for system configs.

Channel Express will create a config for you that contains all the correct sales part numbers.

That will make sure that you have the correct versions, cables, …

If you have the necessary partner access - look at Powerlink in VNX Family -> matrices if you find a zip file called configuration guides.

That would help explain the ordering logic for VNX and other EMC storage.

Your partner account manager or partner TC should be able to help you further
