Sun Enterprise 6500/5500/4500 Systems Reference Manual

Filler Panels and Load Boards

All empty board slots in Enterprise systems must have either a filler panel or a load board installed. (A load board is distinguished by the presence of centerplane connectors. A filler panel has no centerplane connectors.)

Load boards and filler panels are inserted into a board slot with the springfingers facing down if inserted in the front of the system; the springfingers face up if inserted in the rear of the system.
