Note: The adapter-retention assembly consists of 12 separate parts. You can install only the parts that you choose and save the unused parts for future use.
Watch the procedure. A video of the installation and removal process is available:

Procedure

  1. Carefully place the compute node on its side, making sure the protruding part of the handle is at the top so that the compute node is stable.
    Attention: If you place the compute node on its side, with the protruding part of the handle at the bottom, the compute node will not be stable and might fall over.
