Remove a PCIe Card

To access a PCIe card, you must first remove its DPCC (see Remove a DPCC). One or two PCIe cards can be installed in each Dual PCIe Card Carrier (DPCC).

Perform this procedure when replacing a PCIe card or when changing its configuration.

  1. Prepare the server for hot service.

    See Preparing the Server for Component Replacement.

    Note -  This procedure can also be completed as a cold service procedure.
  2. Identify the DPCC containing the PCIe card.

    For component serviceability, locations, and designations, see Replaceable Components.

  3. Remove the DPCC.

    See Remove a DPCC.

  4. Orient the DPCC so that the hinge is to the left.
  5. To open the top of the DPCC, lift the release latch at the non-hinged end of the lid and rotate the lid upward.
