You can insert either one or two Virtualized M2 NEMs in the Sun Blade 6000 chassis. If you insert only one, install it in the lower slot (NEM 0).
Before installing your NEM, remove the NEM filler panel in the slot you plan to use.
Note - The Virtualized M2 NEM can be paired with a pass-through Gigabit Ethernet NEM or another Virtualized M2 NEM only. Mixing of Multi-Fabric NEM M2 types is not supported.
This procedure is for installing a NEM into an empty slot. If you are replacing a NEM, see Replacing a NEM.
