Hello Experts.
I have a Blade C3000 enclosure. I need to attached a USB Disk Drive to one of the Internal Blades to carry out data transfer ( large PST Files ). On the Bottom Front Left of the enclosure there is a USB port ( beside the Reset Button ).  I have connected a USB disk and it displays the online lights. However I can not see it in the enclosure and I can't connect to it via Blade itself. I am using the Onboard Administrator.
Am I just missing something simple ?
Thanks

Hello,

The USB port on the Onboard Administrator does not connect to the blades. It is used to upgrade the firmware on the OA. To connect a USB device to a blade, you will need a local diagnostics I/O cable. HP part # 416003-001. If you look at the front of the blade, you will see a port where the cable connects.

Thanks jjmck, Is this the cable that you use to connect Monitor etc - has two USB connectors on it ?
Yes. It should have USB, Monitor and serial connectors.
