Install a storage interposer (lower tray)

The lower storage interposer is in the lower compute tray that is accessed from the front of the server. Insert the storage interposer in the lower compute tray and secure it with the screw; then, connect the RAID card to the storage interposer and install the fan cage and lower compute tray.

disconnect all power
The power-control button on the device and the power switch on the power supply do not turn off the electrical current supplied to the device. The device also might have more than one power cord. To remove all electrical current from the device, ensure that all power cords are disconnected from the power source.
Make sure that all server power cords are disconnected from their power sources before performing this procedure.

Complete the following steps to install a lower storage interposer:

  1. Position the storage interposer over the pins on the compute tray; then, slide the storage interposer to the right.
  2. Secure the storage interposer with the screw.
  3. Rotate the RAID card down and align it with the connector on the storage interposer; then, insert the RAID card in the storage interposer connector.
  4. Connect the power and data cables to the storage interposer.

After you have installed the lower storage interposer:

  1. Install the lower fan cage. See Install a fan cage (lower tray).

  2. Install the lower compute tray or place it in the normal operating position; then, install the front cover. See Install a compute tray and Install the front cover.
