Removing the controller module

To replace the chassis, you must remove the controller module or modules from the old chassis.


  1. If you are not already grounded, properly ground yourself.
  2. Loosen the hook and loop strap binding the cables to the cable management device, and then unplug the system cables and SFPs (if needed) from the controller module, keeping track of where the cables were connected.
    Leave the cables in the cable management device so that when you reinstall the cable management device, the cables are organized.
  3. Remove and set aside the cable management devices from the left and right sides of the controller module.

  4. Squeeze the latch on the cam handle until it releases, open the cam handle fully to release the controller module from the midplane, and then, using two hands, pull the controller module out of the chassis.

  5. Set the controller module aside in a safe place, and repeat these steps if you have another controller module in the chassis.
