SpaceX is targeting Thursday, June 3 for Falcon 9’s launch of the twenty-second Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-22). Liftoff is targeted for 1:29 p.m. EDT, or 17:29 UTC, from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. A backup launch opportunity is available on Friday, June 4 at 1:03 p.m. EDT, or 17:03 UTC. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. Dragon will separate from Falcon 9’s second stage about twelve minutes after liftoff and autonomously dock to the space station on Saturday, June 5.

Maui-built bio lab prepares for second launch in 2021 Dated AUG 5, 2020

Quote
A mobile space lab designed and largely fabricated in Central Maui successfully returned from orbit in April, and now the team of engineers and biologists are preparing for its second mission to continue conducting experiments on the International Space Station.

SCORPIO-V, the biological sciences division of HNu Photonics based in Kahului, has designed a tissue- and cell-culturing facility that can perform biology experiments in space without crew monitoring for as long as a month.

“The Mobile SpaceLab was able to successfully complete all on-orbit operations over a six-week span via HNu Photonics’ remote ground control center located in Kahului,” Dan O’Connell, the founder and owner of HNu, said in an email Tuesday afternoon.

Team members will look at how the environment in space might accelerate age-related declines in human neurons or brain cells.

O’Connell added that the multimillion-dollar Mobile SpaceLab was a “successful demonstration of the system’s on-orbit capabilities” and is now preparing for another launch into orbit early next year on SpX-22, a commercial resupply service mission to the International Space Station. The mission is contracted by NASA and will be flown by SpaceX using a cargo Dragon, which was also used in the first launch.

Does SpaceX Cargo Dragon CRS-22 with cargo truck need to use the SSRMS during delivery to the station the first set of 2 iROSA arrays?
If so Cargo Dragon CRS-22 should to dock to Harmony PMA-3 / IDA-3 as opposed to scheduled below ISS operations:

Quote from: 'Salo'
May 13 - Dragon v2 (SpX-22) docking (to Harmony PMA 2 / IDA 2)

So then the planned relocation of the Crew Dragon Crew-2 will not be needed before the CRS-22 docking, and only before the arrival of the Starliner CFT scheduled for mid-June 2021.

Can anyone confirm this or knows how it is planned?

I would expect all of the Cargo Dragons to dock at the zenith port.  The exact placement of vehicles at various times will be affected by how the Boeing test flights (including OFT-2) end up interacting with the SpaceX flights.

Patch for this mission:

SpX-22, is a Commercial Resupply Service mission to the International Space Station planned to be launched in June 2021. The mission is contracted by NASA and will be flown by SpaceX using a Cargo Dragon. This will be the second flight for SpaceX under NASA's CRS Phase 2 contract awarded in January 2016.

The previous post said the NET launch date was May 20.
Why was the thread title changed from “20 May, 2021” to “June 2021” without any comment on it?

I think because of:
New dates from Glenn Research Center:

SpX-22 slips from May to June 2021
SpX-24 slips from November to December 2021
SpX-25 slips from March to April 2022

The new date for SpX-24 was already published some weeks ago.
