Filler Panels and Modules

Depending on the configuration, the server can include the following items:

  • CMIOU fillers are present in configurations that have fewer than the maximum number of CMIOUs installed. A CMIOU filler does not need to be installed in an empty slot during a CMIOU service procedure.

  • Port plugs are installed in the serial and network ports on an SP or SPP that are not used by your system's configuration. These port plugs must be transferred from an SP or SPP during the replacement of these components.

  • No filler panels are required for the PCIe slots as long as the PCIe card carrier is installed.


Caution  -  To maintain the proper air flow, all filler panels and modules must remain in the server unless you remove one to install a functioning component at the same time.
