Completing the installation

To complete the installation, complete the following tasks.

  1. Reinstall the optional expansion unit, if you removed one to install other devices (see Installing an optional expansion unit for information on installing the expansion unit).
  2. Close the blade server cover, unless you installed an optional expansion unit that has its own cover (see Closing the blade server cover).

    Statement 21

    Graphic illustrating Danger and voltage warnings

    Hazardous energy is present when the blade server is connected to the power source. Always replace the blade server cover before installing the blade server.
  3. Reinstall the blade server into the BladeCenterĀ® unit (see Installing the blade server in a BladeCenter unit).
  4. Turn on the blade server (see Turning on the blade server).
  5. For certain devices, run the blade server Configuration/Setup Utility program (see Configuring the blade server).
    If you have just connected the power cords of the BladeCenter unit to electrical outlets, you must wait until the power-on LED on the blade server flashes slowly before you press the power-control button.
