HP ProLiant DL360 G3 with Battery Backed Write Cache?

Hello,

I've got a HP ProLiant DL360 G3 and I would like to use the corresponding Battery Backed Write Cache Enabler Option Kit (255514-B21).

The bundle itself seems to be only usable with G2, but the following links are pointing me to the BBWC for the G3 - so how to install the BBWC at a G3?!

Any hints, suggestions or howtos?

I bought the Battery Backed Write Cache now, but HP delivers the wrong installation howto with 255514-B21, because it only describes the installation at a HP ProLiant DL360 G2 and not at a G3 server.

The mainboard layouts of those two machines are differing, so you can't really use the pictures from the howto! But I saw, that it is possible to install the BBWC correctly at the G3 using the two screws at the end on the right side of the chassis (just look on the right side of the onboard NICs) - seen from the front panel.

Thank you for your help and hopefully my description helps other people having the same problem.
