Remove the interposer card
Use this information to remove the interposer card.
Before you remove the interposer card, complete the following steps:
Read Installation Guidelines to ensure that you work safely.
- If the compute node is installed in a chassis, remove it (see Remove a compute node for instructions).
- Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.
Remove the compute node cover (see Remove the compute node cover for instructions).
- If you need to remove the interposer card to access components on the system board (for example DIMM slot 41-42), there is no need to remove the drive backplane.
- If you only need to replace the interposer card, there is no need to remove the drive backplane.
To remove the interposer card, complete the following steps:
- Locate the interposer card installed in the compute node.
- If the interposer card is connected with RAID adapter, remove the RAID adapter (see Remove the RAID adapter for instructions) and flip it over to access the underside. Disconnect the cable by pressing the latch and pulling the cable out from the RAID adapter.Figure 1. Disconnecting the cable from underside of RAID adapter
- Rotate the lever on the drive backplane to disengage the interposer card from the backplane connector.
- Lift the interposer card and remove it from the compute node.
- Remove the cable from cable clip.Figure 2. Interposer card removal
If you are instructed to return the interposer card, follow all packaging instructions, and use any packaging materials for shipping that are supplied to you.
