  1. Read the following section(s) to ensure that you work safely.
  2. Remove the compute node (see Remove a compute node from the enclosure).
  3. Remove the compute node cover (see Remove the compute node cover).

Complete the following steps to install a drive bay blank.

Watch the procedure. A video of the installation process is available:

  1. Slide the blank into the drive bay until the screw hole in the filler aligns with the hole on the node.
  2. Fasten the screw.
