Installing the PCIe risers

You install the PCIe risers in the replacement controller module after moving the DIMMs, NVDIMMs, and boot media.


  1. Install the riser into the replacement controller module:
    1. Align the lip of the riser with the underside of the controller module sheet metal.
    2. Guide the riser along the pins in the controller module, and then lower the riser into the controller module.
    3. Swing the locking latch down and click it into the locked position.
      When locked, the locking latch is flush with the top of the riser and the riser sits squarely in the controller module.
    4. Reinsert any SFP or QSFP modules that were removed from the PCIe cards.
  2. Repeat the preceding step for the remaining PCIe risers.
