Installing a not-hot-plug PCI adapter - (NF 8500R - Type 8681)
Installing a non-hot-plug PCI adapter:
This section gives the procedures for installing a non-hot-plug adapter.
If you want to remove a non-hot-plug adapter, reverse the steps.
Before you begin:
- Read 'Safety information'.
- Read the documentation that comes with the adapter for any special requirements or restrictions.
- The orange color on components and labels in the server indicates hot-swap or hot-plug components.
This means that you can install or remove the component while the system is running, provided that the system is configured to support this function.
For complete details about installing or removing a hot-swap or hot-plug component, see the information provided in this chapter.
- The blue color on components or labels indicates touch points where a component can be gripped, a latch moved, and so on.
Refer to the illustrations in 'Hot-plug PCI adapter installation' while you perform the steps in this procedure.
To install a non-hot-plug PCI adapter:
- Run the shutdown procedure for the operating system.
Turn off the server and peripheral devices; and disconnect all external cables and power cords
(see 'Preparing to install options'); then, remove the top cover
(see 'Removing the top cover').
- Determine which expansion slot you will use for the adapter.
Note: Check the instructions that come with the adapter for any requirements or restrictions.
- Perform step 4 through
and step 13.
Verifying compatibility between network adapters and device drivers
The server supports several types of network adapters.
If you are having trouble with the installation or operation of a network adapter or network operating system, ensure that
the network-adapter device driver supports multiple processors.
Refer to the network-adapter documentation for additional information about adapter compatibility requirements.
