Remove a DPCC

This component is accessed directly from the rear of the server. Dual PCIe Card Carriers (DPCCs) can house two PCIe cards. You need to perform this procedure to replace or to remove and install a PCIe card.

Before You Begin

  • For component serviceability, locations, and designations, see About System Components.

  • This procedure requires a non-conducting stylus.

  1. Prepare the server for hot service. See Prepare the Server for Hot Service.

    Alternatively, to prepare the server for cold service, see Prepare the Server for Cold Service.

  2. Identify the DPCC.

  3. Use a stylus to press the Attn buttons on the front of the DPCC (for button location, see Dual PCIe Card Carrier (DPCC) Indicators).

    The Attn buttons alert the system to a request to remove a PCIe card. When the system has acknowledged the request, it takes the device offline and lights both indicators for each slot. When the indicators are lit, it is safe to remove the component.

  4. To unlock the DPCC lever, lift the release latch and pull the lever downward, away from the server.

    This action disengages the PCIe card IO connectors from the connectors on the back of the CMODs.

  5. To remove the DPCC, slide it out of the server.
