Chapter 6 Finish the Installation

Table of Contents

6.1 Push the Server Back into the Rack
6.2 Replace the Doors on the Rack
6.3 Automatic Provisioning

When the cables are connected, complete the final tasks in the following sections to complete finish the installation, so that the new compute node can be incorporated into the running environment.

6.1 Push the Server Back into the Rack

Location: part 2, page 4, pane 9

During the installation and cabling, the server is pushed into and out of the rack several times. Pane 9 provides instructions to lock the server in its final installed position so that the rack can be closed.


  1. Simultaneously pull and hold the two green release tabs (one on each side of the server) toward the front of the server while you push the server into the rack.

    An image shows the server almost fully inserted into the rack. A detail bubble shows the location of the slide rail release buttons. As the arrows indicate, you must push the slide rail release buttons and slide the server into the rack.

  2. As you push the server into the rack, verify that the CMA retracts without binding.

6.2 Replace the Doors on the Rack

Location: part 2, page 4, pane 10

Pane 10 provides instructions to re-attach the doors to the rack and close them.


  1. Retrieve the doors, and place them carefully on the door hinges.

  2. Connect the front and rear door grounding strap to the frame.

    An image illustrates the location of the door hinges on the appliance rack. Four detail bubbles show a close-up of each hinge. A fifth detail bubble in the center shows how the grounding straps are attached to the frame.

  3. Close the doors.

  4. Optionally, lock the doors.

6.3 Automatic Provisioning

Location: part 2, page 4, pane 11

Pane 11 explains that no additional actions are required for the provisioning of the new compute node.

The Appliance Dashboard detects that one or more new compute nodes are present in the rack. It automatically powers on the new hardware and executes the provisioning procedure. The expansion compute nodes are incorporated seamlessly into the active system. This requires no further interventions by an administrator.
