Install a 2.5-inch drive backplane
Use this information to install a drive backplane option.
Several different types of drive backplanes can be installed in the compute node. All are removed and installed in a similar manner.
To install a 2.5-inch drive backplane, complete the following steps:
- Align the backplane with the storage cage and the connector on the system board and press the backplane into position until it is fully seated in the connector.NoteAll drive backplanes use the same connector on the system board; however, there are two alignment slots in the storage cage to accommodate different backplane types. Make sure that you align the backplane and system board connectors when inserting the backplane in the storage cage.
- Insert the hot-swap drives and drive bay fillers.
