The type of DVD tray these server systems use (I don't have an R900, but
assume it is like the R710) does not support retract/close - it is not
an OS issue. Generally, rack-mounted systems use CD/DVD trays that are
eject-once (no retract/close support) while tower-style systems use
CD/DVD trays that can retract/close (although I don't have any Dell
tower systems, this is just a very general observation).
