Installing the BBWC enabler on a BL20p G3

Thank you in advance,

Has anyone used the BBWC enabler kit on a BL20P G3 server. I have to go on site tomorrow and install the optional 128 MB BBWC. The guy currently out there says there is no place to install it. I want to be prepared when I get there if possible.

Can anyone help me with some instructions?

Thank you,

I was looking all over for that. It think the one listed in the product guide (346914-B21) is incorrect. On line this one has a cable and I think is for the other server modles but not the Blade.

True????

Thanks again,

Yes. The cable is for use in the DL series. For instance... in the DL380, the BWCC sits right behind the front panel along the right hand side of the server. The cable attaches the BWCC to the underside of the Smart Array, or at least did (Ive installed these mostly on dl380G3's). The 6i might be a bit different, but not much.
