Installing a 5.25-inch Removable-Media Drive

Installing a 5.25-inch Removable-Media Drive

Before you begin:

Note: The server's EMI integrity and cooling are both protected by having the left front bays covered or occupied. When you install a drive, save the filler panel from the bay, in case you later remove the drive and do not replace it with another.

Refer to the illustrations (on left side) while you perform the steps in this procedure.

To install a removable-media drive in one of the left front bays:

  1.  Turn off the server and peripheral devices (see 'Preparing to Install Options') and  remove the top cover (see 'Top Cover Removal').
  2.  Remove the NetBAY3 bezel and the media-bay trim  bezel. (See 'Server Door and Trim Bezels Removal'.)
  3.  Remove the screws -1- and filler panel -2- from the  bay opening. Save screws for later use in this  procedure. You do not need the filler panel when you  have a drive installed in the bay.
  4.  Touch the static-protective bag containing the drive to  any unpainted metal surface on the server, then,  remove the drive from the bag and place it on a  static-protective surface.
  5.  Set any jumpers or switches on the drive according to  the documentation that comes with the drive.
  6.  Use screws -4- of the appropriate size and length to  attach a slide rail -3- to each side of the drive -5-.

    Note:  The slide rails and screws are included in the  drive accessory kit that comes with the server.

  7.  Place the drive so that the slide rails engage in the  bay guide rails. Push the drive into the bay and  attach it with the two screws -1- from the filler panel.
  8.  Loosen the four thumbscrews -8- on the shuttle at  the back of the server.
  9.  Pull the shuttle -7- toward the back of the server.
  10.  Connect one of the connectors on the SCSI cable for  the removable-media drive bays -6- to the back of  the drive -5-.
  11.  Connect a power cable to the back of the drive.  Power cables for removable-media drives come  installed in the server. The connectors are keyed  and can be inserted only one way.
  12.  If you are installing another 5.25-inch drive, do so at  this time. Otherwise, continue with the next step.
  13.  Push the shuttle -7- toward the front of the server  and tighten the four thumbscrews -8- at the back of  the shuttle.
  14.  Install the media-bay trim bezel and the NetBAY3  bezel that you removed earlier. (See 'Installing the Trim Bezels and Server Door')
  15.  If you have other options to install or remove, do so  now, otherwise, go to Completing the Installation.
