How to install bl860 & bl460 ?

Hello all,
I'v got 3 bl860c and 5 bl460c. But, i don't know how to install all above blades in to the Enclosure.
Please, show me where're the bl860c and the bl460c for position.
Thank you very much

i don't see any problem, if you have cx7000 enclosure, there are 16 half size position or 8 full size positions, you need only enough power supplies installed inside the enclosure.

on this site you will find documentation for bl860c :

Put the BL860 in the left hand slot
See pages 32-38 in the doc for how to remove the metal bracket

Put the BL460s in the top row starting at position 3.

Be sure that you leave the "blanks" installed in bays which have no blade installed. Same is true for the Interconnect Bays.
