HP C7000 BL480/BL460 installation in adjacent bays and the device bay shelf

Hi,


I have a c7000 BLade enclosure with a BL480c Blade installed in the far right hand slot - slot 8/22. To instal this Blade the device bay shelf had to be removed since it is a full height Blade.

The device bay shelf reached across slots 7/21 and 8/22.

I now want to install 2 by BL460c half height Blades into slots 7 and 21.

Is this possible without the device bay shelf ? Or how do I work around this?

Thanks
Andrew

It's not possible. I have seen these smaller shelfs that allow you to mount a storage/tape -blade next to full-height blade but not sure if those work in your case.

slots 21 & 22? -

surely you mean 7/15 & 8/16

If you put a full height in 8/16 you "can" put half height blades in 7 & 15.

But HP will not support the blade while it is in slot 7 as there is nothing to stop it falling/vibrating out. As the catch is on the shelf that was removed.
Blade in 15 still has a catch at the bottom of the enclosure.
