  2. Reconnect the NVMe cables to the Oracle PCIe NVMe switch cards in PCIe slots 3, 4, 8, and 9 [2].

    Plug each cable into its connector until you hear an audible click. To ensure proper NVMe cable connections, see the NVMe cable connections table in Step 3. See also Install a PCIe Card.


    Note -  NVMe cable assembly, part numbers 7345517 (long NVMe cable) and 7345518 (short NVMe cable) are required to connect Oracle PCIe NVMe switch cards to the disk backplane.
  3. Reconnect the NVMe cables to the disk backplane [3].

    Plug each cable into its NVMe connector until you hear an audible click.
