Abstract

Described are proposed self-ejecting blades. The end-user can remotely eject the blade (using one of the many management module interfaces), walk to the server room, and simply look for the one that is no longer in its slot. This method guarantees that the blade can be found easily, is turned off, and can safely be pulled from the chassis.
