The astronauts handed over control of the lab's robotic arm, nicknamed Canadarm 2, for engineers in Houston and Canada to maneuver the Dragon spacecraft into position on the Earth-facing port of the space station's Harmony module.
It was the first time controllers on the ground used the arm to install a newly-arrived spacecraft on the space station.
The hatches between the newly arrived spacecraft and the Harmony module of the space station are scheduled to be opened on March 4. The capsule is scheduled to spend 22 days attached to the station.
