Installing A Sleeve In The Enclosure NOTE: This procedure applies only to PowerEdge M420. A sleeve includes up to four quarter-height blades to function as a system. Depending on your order, the sleeve may ship with the blades preinstalled.
Figure 2. Installing a Sleeve NOTE: Before you install or remove a sleeve from the enclosure, ensure that the top slot of the sleeve (Blade a) is empty. You can install a blade in the top slot (Blade a) after you install the sleeve in the enclosure. Remove the orange cover from the sleeve handle.
Figure 4. Installing a Half-Height Blade NOTE: The above figure shows installation of a half-height blade. The procedure for installing a full-height blade is identical to installing a half-height blade. Beginning at the top, slide the blades into the enclosure from left to right. When the blade is securely installed, the blade handle returns to the closed position.
Connecting The System To Power Figure 6. Connecting Power to the System Connect the system’s power cables to the system power supplies. CAUTION: To prevent the power cables from being disconnected accidentally, use the plastic clip on each power supply to secure the power cable to the power supply, and use the strap to secure the power cable to the strain- relief bar.
