Staff can help resolve hardware problems not covered under warranty, refer you to the right documentation and publications, provide corrective service information for known defects, and transfer you to a hardware support call center if needed.
- Hardware Installation Services
Lenovo experts can seamlessly manage the physical installation of your server, storage, or networking hardware. Working at a time convenient for you (business hours or off shift), the technician will unpack and inspect the systems on your site, install options, mount in a rack cabinet, connect to power and network, check and update firmware to the latest levels, verify operation, and dispose of the packaging, allowing your team to focus on other priorities. Your new systems will be configured and ready for your software installation.
