DL580 G7 mystery part / threaded holes

Hello,

 

New to this forum.

 

I have an HP DL580 G7 server, and I have noticed in the PDF manuals that there is a "mystery" part or parts that attach via 4 screws, to 4 threaded holes behind the fan wall, over the PCI slots (does this make sense?)

 

Anyway, I have looked all over the internet for DL580 G7 photos and non show these "parts"; however, the manuals, in some sections, do show them. There is no other reference to them anywhere.

 

I leave attached some photos and a manual illustration.

 

They look like some sort of brackets or maybe just 1 single, large bracket...

 

Hope this helps.

 

Any ideas? Thanks!!!

I've looked at a couple of units and neither had anything there.  Looking at the various pictures in the server and maintenance guide I'm guessing they are card guides. Maybe something that never made it into production.

Yes... Seems like the most logical answer

Maybe a placeholder for spare/removed back PCI slot covers?
