Installing the scalability tray

Use this information to install the scalability tray on a blade server.

To install the scalability tray, complete the following steps:

  1. Before you begin, read Safety and Installation guidelines.
  2. If the blade server is installed in a BladeCenter chassis, remove it (see Removing the blade server from the BladeCenter chassis for instructions).
  3. Carefully lay the blade server on a flat, static-protective surface, with the cover side down.
  4. Align the scalability tray flush with the blade server in the start position. The pins on the scalability tray should be aligned with the holes in the blade server.

  6. Attempt to pull the scalability tray back to ensure that the scalability tray is firmly seated.
  7. Look in the holes on each side of the blade server to ensure that the spring plates are engaged.
