To install a hot-swap drive backplane, complete the following steps:

  1. Position the backplane on the drive cage so that the tabs on the drive cage are inserted into the corresponding holes in the backplane; then, align bottom of backplane inside the bottom tabs of the drive cage.
  2. While pulling the plunger, slide down the backplane until it is seated at the bottom of the drive cage; then, close the plunger to secure the backplane into position.
