(Optional) Installing a P36E/C36E Node (On Static Guide Rails)

(Optional) Installing a P36E/C36E Node (On Static Guide Rails)

Installing a P36E/C36E into the cabinet includes sliding the P36E/C36E into the cabinet, fastening the P36E/C36E, and checking the installation result.


  • Operations described in Installing a Cabinet or Checking a Third-Party Cabinet have been completed.
  • Guide rails have been installed.
  • All required tools have been prepared, containing M3 to M6 Phillips screwdrivers, M6 screws, and protective gloves.
  • Ensure that the CPU, DIMM, riser card, the PCIe card on the riser card, and the PCIe card of the node are installed. If any of the parts is not installed, see section "Replacing Components for a P36E or C36E Node" in Parts Replacement to install it.


  • A fully configured P36E/C36E weighs up to 57 kg. Therefore, arrange for at least four persons to carry it and ensure that they wear protective gloves to avoid personal injury.
  • Install components into a cabinet from bottom to top to prevent the cabinet from falling over.


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves.
  2. Install a P36E/C36E node on static guide rails.
    1. At least four people are required to lift the P36E/C36E and move it to the cabinet.
    2. Place the P36E/C36E onto the guide rails and slide it into the cabinet. See step (1) in Figure 8-53.

      Figure 8-53  Installing a P36E/C36E (using P36E as an example)

    3. When the two mounting ears of the P36E/C36E come into contact the mounting bars on the cabinet, tighten the captive screws on the mounting ears to secure the P36E/C36E. See step (2) in Figure 8-53.
  3. Optional: Install hard disks (using P36E as an example).

    1. Fully raise the ejector lever and push the hard disk into the chassis along the guide rails until it does not move. See step 1 in Figure 8-54.

      To ensure favorable heat dissipation, insert disks in the sequence of disk slot IDs. If the disk module or PCIe module is not fully configured, cover filler panels over vacant disk slots or PCIe slots.

      Figure 8-54  Installing a hard disk

      The disk slots on the front panel of a P36E front panel are numbered from 0 to 23 from top to bottom and from left to right, as shown in Figure 8-55.

      The disk slots on the rear panel of a P36E rear panel are numbered from 24 to 35 from top to bottom and from left to right, as shown in Figure 8-56.

    2. Ensure that the ejector lever is fastened to the chassis beam, and lower the ejector lever to completely insert the disk into the chassis. See step 2 in Figure 8-54.
