Install the PCIe expansion node power board

Use this information to install the PCIe expansion node power board.

Before you install the PCIe expansion node power board:
  1. Read the following section(s) to ensure that you work safely.
  2. If the compute-expansion node assembly is installed in the enclosure, remove it (see Remove the compute-expansion node assembly from the enclosure).

  3. Remove the rear cable cover (see Remove the rear cable cover).

  4. Remove both riser assemblies from the expansion node (see Remove a PCIe adapter from the riser cage).

  5. If an expansion node power board has been installed, remove it (see Remove the PCIe expansion node power board).

Complete the following steps to install the PCIe expansion node power board.
  1. Align the expansion node power board to the guide pins; then, slide it slightly backward until it stops.

  2. Fasten the screws to secure it to the expansion node.

After you install the PCIe expansion node power board, complete the following steps:

  1. Install the PCIe riser assemblies to the PCIe expansion node (see Install a PCIe adapter into the riser cage).

  2. Install the rear cable cover (see Install the rear cable cover).

  3. Install the PCIe expansion node assembly into the enclosure (see Install the compute-expansion node assembly into the enclosure).

  4. Power on the compute node.
