Installing a 2U GPU tray into a compute node

Use this information to install a 2U GPU tray in a NeXtScale nx360 M5 compute node.

Important: When you install the new 2U GPU tray, you must update the 2U GPU tray with the latest firmware. Make sure that you have the latest firmware before you proceed. See Updating the firmware for more information.
Note: The 2U GPU tray supports only 1300-watt power supply unit with high-line Vin (AC 200 volt to 240 volt).
Before you install the compute node in a chassis, read Safety and Installation guidelines.

To install the 2U GPU tray to compute node, complete the following steps:

  1. Carefully lay the 2U GPU tray on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the 2U GPU tray with the release latch near your right hand side.
  2. Orient the 2U GPU tray so that the posts on the inside of the 2U GPU tray slide into the slots on the compute node.
    Note: Before you install the 2U GPU tray, make sure that the air baffles and all components are installed and seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the compute node.

  3. Hold the front of the compute node and slide the 2U GPU tray forward to the closed position, until it clicks into place.
  4. Reinstall the PCI riser-cage assembly in the 2U GPU tray (see Replacing a PCI riser-cage assembly to the 2U GPU tray).
  5. Connect the cables that were disconnected from the 2U GPU tray.
  6. Replace the cover (see Installing the compute node cover).
