How to Remove a Fabric Expansion Module

The CMOD has two FEM slots. FEM support is available in slot 0 only. Slot 0 is the slot nearest the edge of the CMOD.

Before You Begin

  1. Prepare the server for service. See How to Prepare for Service.
  2. Remove the CMOD from the server. See How to Remove a CPU Module (CMOD).
  3. Set the CMOD on a flat antistatic surface with ample surrounding space and light.
  4. Remove the CMOD cover. See How to Remove the CPU Module (CMOD) Cover.
  5. To disconnect the FEM from the connector on the motherboard, push down on the FEM release button on the rear of the server.

    This action ejects the FEM from its connector.

  6. Carefully lift the FEM at the connector end.

    The FEM is secured at the opposite end by a retaining clip on the front support bracket.

  7. To remove the FEM, slide it away from the retaining clip and out of the server.
  8. Prepare the server for operation. See How to Prepare for Operation.
