Install only PCIe x16 hot-plug card carriers, which are physically labeled with "x16 CAR" on the faceplate, in SPARC M8 and M7 servers. Do not install PCIe x8 card carriers, which are labeled with "CAR" on the faceplate, from earlier generations of Oracle servers. See Supported PCIe Card Carriers and PCIe Cards.
See Prevent ESD Damage.
If the carrier slides correctly into the slot, you should feel a slight resistance as the carrier starts to seat in the connector.
Caution - Do not push the extraction lever while you insert the carrier into the slot. The carrier can enter at an angle and damage the connectors.
The carrierâs LEDs should blink for a few seconds until the PDomain enables the PCIe card. The cardâs LEDs will show activity when the card is enabled.
See Verify the PCIe Card.
