After you receive your PowerEdge FD332 system, you must set up your system in the enclosure. If your storage sled has shipped pre-
installed in the enclosure, it is recommended that you remove the sled before you install the enclosure in the rack, to reduce chassis weight.

Setting up your PowerEdge FD332
1
Unpack the storage sled.
NOTE:
If your storage sled has shipped pre-installed in the enclosure, remove the sled before installing the enclosure in the
rack, to reduce chassis weight. See
NOTE:
If you are installing the storage sled in an enclosure that is already powered on, you need not turn off the enclosure
to install the storage sled. Only the compute sled(s) to which the storage sled is mapped must be turned off.
2
Turn off the compute sled(s) to which the storage sled is mapped, by using the CMC, iDRAC, or the power button on the compute
sled(s). For information on mapping configurations of storage sleds to compute sleds, see
3
Remove the I/O connector cover from the storage sled connectors.
4
Install the storage sled in the enclosure. See
NOTE:
Install the storage sled(s) in the bottom slots of the PowerEdge FX2s enclosure, beginning from the left (slot 3). In
the four-bay chassis that supports up to three storage sleds, you can also install a storage sled in the top right slot (slot 2)
of the enclosure. For information on sled slot numbering, see the
at dell.com/poweredgemanuals.
NOTE:
You cannot install the storage sled in the top left slot (slot 1) of the four-bay chassis.
5
Turn on the compute sled(s) to which the storage sled is mapped, by using the iDRAC, CMC, or the compute sled power button.
NOTE:
The storage sled turns on when the compute sled(s) to which it is mapped is/are turned on. For information on the
mapping configurations, see
NOTE:
If the enclosure is not powered on when you are installing the compute and storage sleds, turn on the enclosure and
wait for it to initialize before turning on the compute sled(s).
Managing your system remotely
You can manage and monitor the storage sled by using:
the Chassis Management Controller (CMC). For more information, see the CMC User's Guide at dell.com/esmmanuals.
the iDRAC of the compute sled to which the storage sled is mapped. For more information, see the iDRAC User's Guide at dell.com/
esmmanuals.
the Dell OpenManage Server Administration (OMSA) software. For more information, see dell.com/openmanagemanuals.
