Pinned topic X3650 M3 OPTION 69Y5033/69Y5034 with/without 2 x M1015s ?

X3650 M3 OPTION 69Y5033/69Y5034: The documentation is confusing: I can't find a document stating which parts this kit actually includes, and as you can see below some docs at IBM say that this kit comes with 2 M1015 adapters included while others say this kit is FOR 2 M1015 adapters which implies they are not included. It's practically the same story for these type of upgrade kits: the user guides, service guides, and options guides almost never list the parts included so you have to start googling for basic info wasting a lot of time beacuse nobody at IBM figures out this kind of info should always be included in the relevant guides and not buried deep within this giant and (almost) useless web site.

Please, can anyone having ordered this kit provide me the details ?
