Remove a PCIe Card From PCIe Slot 1 or 2
Either a standard PCIe card (CRU) or the optional PCIe NVMe switch card
can be installed in the PCIe riser for slot 1. The PCIe NVMe switch card is
a field replaceable unit (FRU) and, therefore, must be removed and replaced
only by authorized Oracle Services personnel. For instructions for servicing
the PCIe NVMe switch card, see Servicing the Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card (FRU)
PCIe slot 1 is nonfunctional in single-processor systems.
PCIe riser from the server.
For instructions, see Remove a PCIe Riser From PCIe Slot 1 or 2.
Remove the PCIe card from the PCIe riser.
Hold the riser in one hand and use your other hand to carefully
pull the PCIe card connector out of the riser.
Disconnect the rear bracket that is attached to the PCIe card from
the rear of the PCIe riser.
Place the PCIe card on an antistatic mat.
Whenever you remove a PCIe card, you should replace it with another
PCIe card or a PCIe filler panel. Installing PCIe filler panels in
vacant PCIe slots helps reduce the level of electromagnetic interference
(EMI) emitted by the server. For instructions for installing a PCIe
filler panel, see Removing and Installing Server Filler Panels.
