Install a PCIe Riser Into PCIe Slot 1 or 2

Note - PCIe slot 1 is nonfunctional in single-processor systems.

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 slot 1 or 2 into PCIe slots 3 and 4 and vice versa.
  1. Determine into which slot you will install the PCIe riser.
  2. Retrieve the PCIe riser and any PCIe cards attached to it.
  3. Raise the green-tabbed release lever on the PCIe riser to the open (up) position [1].
  4. Gently press the riser into the motherboard connector until it is seated, and then press the green-tabbed release lever on the PCIe riser to the closed (down) position [2].

  5. Close the green-tabbed latch on the rear of the server chassis next to the applicable PCIe slot to secure the rear bracket on the PCIe card to the server chassis [3].

    Note - If the riser does not have a PCIe card installed, install a PCIe slot filler panel and close the green-tabbed latch to secure the filler panel.
  6. If there were any external cables connected to the PCIe card, reconnect them.
  7. Return the server to operation.
    1. Install the server top cover.

      See Install the Server Top Cover.

    2. Return the server to the normal rack position.

      See Return the Server to the Normal Rack Position.

    3. Reconnect the power cords to the server power supplies and reconnect the data cables.

      See Reconnect Data Cables and Power Cords.

    4. Power on the server.

      See Power On the Server.

      Verify that the Power/OK status indicator is steady on.

  8. 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 must manually clear the fault in Oracle ILOM. For instructions for manually clearing a PCIe riser fault, see the procedure "Clear Faults for Undetected Replaced or Repaired Hardware Components" in the Oracle ILOM User's Guide for System Monitoring and Diagnostics Firmware Release 5.0.x in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 5.0 Documentation Library at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.
