Installing the PCIe risers

You reinstall the PCIe risers after replacing the hardware components in the impaired controller.

Step

  1. Install the riser into the 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 modules that were removed from the PCIe cards.
