About this task
The server supports different types of riser cages (see Table 1). This topic uses the 3FH riser 1 cage and Gen 4 riser 3 cage as an example for illustration. The replacement procedure is the same for other riser cages.
Power off the server and peripheral devices and disconnect the power cords and all external cables. See Power off the server.
