Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Label and then disconnect the controller power cables.
  2. Wrap the strap end of the ESD wristband around your wrist, and secure the clip end to a metal ground to prevent static discharge.
  3. Label and then disconnect the controller data cables and any SFP+ or SFP28 transceivers.
    Attention: To prevent degraded performance, do not twist, fold, pinch, or step on the cables.
  4. Loosen the two captive screws on the controller front panel.
