Install the rear riser bracket

Use this information to install the rear riser bracket.

About this task

For more riser brackets supported, see The overview of riser bracket types.

The riser bracket you want to install might be different from the following illustrations, but the installation method is the same. The following takes the rear LP-FH riser bracket as an example.

  • Read Installation Guidelines and Safety inspection checklist to ensure that you work safely.

  • Power off the server and peripheral devices and disconnect the power cords and all external cables. See Power off the server.

  • Prevent exposure to static electricity, which might lead to system halt and loss of data, by keeping static-sensitive components in their static-protective packages until installation, and handling these devices with an electrostatic-discharge wrist strap or other grounding system.


Position the riser bracket on the chassis. Align the plastic clip and two pins on the bracket with the guide pin and two holes on the chassis, and align the riser card with the riser slot on the system board. Then, carefully press the riser bracket straight down into the slot until it is fully seated.
