The hardware upgrade procedures affect hard drives and memory. The exact hardware upgrades that are required depend on which ATP appliance(s) you have:
ATP 8880 v1, based on the Dell R720XL platform
ATP 8880v2, based on the Dell R730XL platform
You can upgrade the software of the ATP 8840 appliance to ATP 3.x. However, the hardware of the 8840 does not support ATP's new endpoint data recorder and EDR 2.0 features.
Click the following link for a list of the necessary hardware components to upgrade your appliance.
Installing non-Dell components on the appliance voids the Dell warranty. You must procure the upgrade hardware directly from Dell.
Before you start, download or otherwise procure the owner's manual for your appliance platform:

Dell R730: http://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/poweredge-r730_owner's%20manual_en-us.pdf

Upgrade the appliance software to ATP 3.x.
The hardware upgrade will not be successful unless you first install ATP 3.x (a connection through port 443 to swupdate.brightmail.com must be available).
