HP 83712A Option 1E1 Question

i have a 83712A generator with no options installed, i would like to add the attenuator option (1E1) , i have a parts donor to recover the attenuator , mounting hardware and cables , i also have the service software and a HP9000-300 with HP Basic 6.2 !
So my question here is do i need to turn the option on after i install the hardware or does the instrument automatically detect the presence of the attenuator ?  i was looking through the manuals and could not find any hints , i also scrolled through the special function menues to see if there is any service menue to enable the attenuator but with no sucess !
any input on this ?
