The HP CD-ROM Server Tower Module is intended to be installed in standard CD-ROM towers. The dimension of the CD-ROM server is the same as for standard CD-ROM drives, which is 5.25 inches half-height.
To install the CD-ROM server, follow the steps below:
To avoid the risk of electrical shock or other injury, disconnect power from the tower before removing the cover, chassis, or enclosure.
Prepare the CD-ROM tower for the installation. For example, remove the chassis cover.
Record the LAN hardware (MAC) address of the CD-ROM server. You will need this number during the network configuration. The address is found on the label on the bottom of the server.
An additional label that identifies the same LAN hardware address is included with the HP CD-ROM Server Tower Module. This label is intended to be attached to the outside of the tower chassis (the CD-ROM server might not be accessible after it is installed).
Slide the CD-ROM server into the tower.
If required, use the four screws supplied to fix the CD-ROM server in place. Use the upper or lower holes depending on the type of tower and its mounting requirements.
The length of the screws must not exceed 5 mm (0.2 inch). If they do, the internal components of the CD-ROM server may be damaged.
Attach the power cable to the CD-ROM server. The power connector on the CD-ROM server is a standard PC 4-pin power connector (12 and 5 Vdc).
Connect the external network connector board to the CD-ROM server using the ribbon cable. The network connector board includes network connectors and the Reset button.
The board is intended to be mounted on the back of the CD-ROM tower. The mounting plate on the board fits into standard parallel-connector cut-out holes available on most towers.
