Hi,
See HP StorageWorks SB40c Storage Blade Installation Instructions
http://tinyurl.com/l75ocp

"Additional guidelines for installation with a
full-height partner server blade
When installing the SB40c with a full-height server blade,
observe the following additional guidelines:
â ¢ Remove the device bay shelf.
â ¢ Install a HP PCIe Mezzanine Pass-Thru Card in
mezzanine 3 connector in the server blade. See the documentation that ships with the mezzanine card and
the server blade documentation.
â ¢ Install the coupler plate on the SB40c.
â ¢ Install the SB40c in any device bay on the lower row of
the enclosure (9 through 16).
â ¢ If the SB40c is installed in an odd-numbered bay, install
the partner server blade in the adjacent even-numbered
bay to the right.
â ¢ If the SB40c is installed in an even-numbered bay, install
the partner server blade in the adjacent odd-numbered
bay to the left.
â ¢ When installing the SB40c with a full-height server
blade, a half-height server blade can be installed in the
empty bay above the SB40c. This server blade cannot
be partnered with the SB40c."
