Install a PCIe Riser Into PCIe Slots 3 and 4
Note - The PCIe riser in slots 3 and 4 is different than the PCIe
risers in slots 1 and 2. Do not attempt to install a PCIe
riser from slots 1 or 2 into PCIe slots 3 and 4 and
- Retrieve the PCIe riser and any PCIe cards attached to it.
- Reconnect the SAS cable(s) to the internal HBA card .
Be sure to connect the SAS cable for storage drives 0 through 3
(HDDs 0-3) to the connector that is farther from the riser in which
the HBA card is installed; otherwise, the server will incorrectly identify the storage
drives when it is powered on.
- Raise the PCIe riser green-tabbed release lever to the open (up) position and
gently press the riser into the motherboard connector until it seats .
- Ensure that the rear bracket on the internal HBA card in PCIe slot
4 is connected to the slot in the server's chassis side wall. If
the bracket is not connected, remove the riser and reposition it so that
the rear bracket connects to the side wall, then gently press the riser
into the motherboard connector.
- Slide the plastic PCIe card retainer that is mounted on the side of
the chassis toward the back of the server to secure the card(s) installed
in the riser .
- Press the green-tabbed release lever on the PCIe riser to the close (down)
- To secure the PCIe card's rear bracket to the server, close the green-tabbed
latch on the rear of the server's chassis .
Note - If the riser does not have a PCIe card installed in slot 3,
install a PcIe filler panel and close the green-tabbed latch to secure the
PCIe slot filler panel.
- If there is a PCIe card installed in slot 3 of the riser,
reconnect any external or internal cables to the card.
- Return the server to operation.
- Install the top cover.
See Install the Top Cover.
- Close the fan door.
- Return the server to the normal rack position.
See Return the Server to the Normal Rack Position.
- Reconnect the power cord to the server power supply and the data cables.
See Reconnect Data Cables and Power Cords.
- Power on the server.
See Power On the Server.
Verify that the Power/OK indicator is steady on.
- Use Oracle ILOM to clear the server PCIe riser fault.
If the PCIe riser fault message in Oracle ILOM is not cleared under
Open Problems, you should use Oracle ILOM to clear the fault. For instructions
for manually clearing a PCIe riser fault, see the procedure "Undetected Replaced or
Repaired Hardware Components" in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1 User's Guide in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM)
