Install the EM

The following instructions describe the basic steps required to install the EM. You can install the EM in a powered-on system using a hot-swap procedure, as well as in a powered-off system.

Note - To maintain proper cooling for the EM in your chassis, all EM slots must be filled with either EMs or filler panels.

  1. Halt and power off your system.
  2. Power off any peripherals connected to your system.
  3. Remove the filler panel from the slot that will receive the EM.
  4. Open the latch on the EM.
  5. Align the EM with the vacant EM slot and slide it into the slot until the ejector lever engages and starts to close.


    Caution - Failure to align the EM correctly can result in damage to the EM's internal connection to the chassis midplane.

  6. Swing the ejector lever up until its latch snaps into place.


    Caution - Do not use excessive force when installing the EM. You might damage the EM's connector. If the EM does not seat properly when you apply even pressure, remove and carefully reinstall the EM.

  7. Connect cables to the ports.
  8. Power on the system.
  9. Power on any peripherals that had been powered down in Step 2.
