Internal cable routing

Some of the components in the node have internal cable connectors.

Note:
  • Disengage all latches, release tabs, or locks on cable connectors when you disconnect cables from the system board. Failing to release them before removing the cables will damage the cable sockets on the system board, which are fragile. Any damage to the cable sockets might require replacing the system board.
  • If you are installing KVM module in a compute node, make sure to route the cables in the following order.

    1. NVMe signal cables (if there is any)

    2. KVM breakout module cable

    3. SATA/SAS signal cable (if there is any)

Some options, such as RAID adapter and backplanes, might require additional internal cabling. See the documentation that is provided for the option to determine any additional cabling requirements and instructions.
