Install the front 3.5-inch-drive backplane
Use this information to install the front 3.5-inch-drive backplane.
Before installing the 3.5-inch-drive backplane, touch the static-protective package that contains the new backplane to any unpainted surface on the outside of the server. Then, take the new backplane out of the package and place it on a static-protective surface.
To install the 3.5-inch-drive backplane, complete the following steps:
- Connect the cables to the backplane. See Backplanes.
- Align the backplane with the chassis and lower it into the chassis. Then, put the backplane into place with it leaning backward slightly.
- Rotate the backplane to vertical position to ensure that the four hooks on the chassis pass through the corresponding holes in the backplane. Then, slide the new backplane as shown until it is secured into place.
