8.5.3 Installing a PCI Express card cassette
Caution - When installing a PCIe card cassette, confirm that the connectors on both the chassis and PCIe card cassette do not have any bent pins, and that the pins are aligned correctly. If you attempt to install a PCIe card cassette while any of the connector pins are bent, the chassis or the PCIe card cassette may be damaged. When performing installation, perform the work carefully so as not to bend any pins.
  1. Hold the lever of the PCIe card cassette and carefully insert the cassette into the PCIe slot.
Note - Before installing the PCIe card cassette, confirm that the lever of the PCIe card cassette is lowered.
Note - Slide the PCIe card cassette along the rail at the bottom of the PCIe slot.
Caution - Do not forcibly push the PCIe card cassette into the PCIe slot. Using excessive force may damage the component or the chassis.
  1. Raise the lever of the PCIe card cassette while pushing the latch and secure it.
Note - Ensure that the PCIe card cassette is firmly inserted and secured.
  1. Connect the cables to the PCIe card cassette.
Note - Reinstall the cables of the PCIe card cassettes in their original positions by referring to notes that you made prior to the start of maintenance.
The FRU installation work is completed. See "Chapter 7  Maintenance Flow" to continue maintenance work.
