Install the enclosure midplane
(Trained service technician only) Use this information to install the enclosure midplane.
About this task
- Connect the two fan cables to the enclosure and route the cables through cable clips.Figure 1. Fan cable installation
- Install the midplane.
- ❶ Carefully align the enclosure midplane with the guide pins in the enclosure; then, slide the midplane into the enclosure.AttentionDo not grasp the connectors on the enclosure midplane when you install it in the enclosure. Touching the connectors might damage the connector pins.
- ❷ Fasten two screws on the top of the midplane.
- ❸ Connect the fan cables to the midplane.Figure 2. Enclosure midplane installation
- ❶ Carefully align the enclosure midplane with the guide pins in the enclosure; then, slide the midplane into the enclosure.
- Install the top cover.
- ❶ Insert the rear top cover tabs into the slot on the enclosure; then, rotate the top cover inwards.
- ❷ Tighten the three captive screws on the top cover.Figure 3. Top cover inward rotation
After you finish
Reassemble the enclosure and program the vital product data (VPD) that is stored on the card. Complete the following steps:
Two technicians must hold the front and rear handles at both sides of the enclosure.
One technician must protect the cables from damage.
Carefully put the enclosure into the rack and slide the enclosure until rear handles are near front rack rails; then, remove rear handles at both sides.Figure 4. Rear handle removal
Slide the enclosure farther into the rack until front handles are near front rack rails; then, remove front handles at both sides.Figure 5. Front handle removal
Side the enclosure all the way back to the rack.Figure 6. Sliding the rack
Secure the enclosure to the rack with six screws; then, reinstall the EIA covers.Figure 7. EIA cover installation

- Reinstall the components that you removed from the rear of the enclosure.
- Connect any cables that you disconnected from the modules in the rear of the enclosure.
- Connect the enclosure to power.
- Write down new enclosure midplane serial number (for example: Y030UN34B063) and UUID (for example: 2E2B686CC6B311E2907C6EAE8B16A49E).
- Update the solution firmware to the latest level.
- Log in to the web interface.
- Go to System Information section, click on the Midplane VPD tab.
- Update the new enclosure midplane serial number and UUID onto the fan and power controller.
