Intrusion switch replacement

Use this information to remove and install the intrusion switch. The intrusion switch informs you that the server cover is not properly installed or closed by creating an event in the system event log (SEL).


The intrusion switch assembly can only be installed onto the riser 2 bracket of the following rear configurations:

  • 8 PCIe slots: The server has eight PCIe slots, without any rear drive cage.

  • Rear 2.5-inch drive cage: The server has six PCIe slots, with a rear 2.5-inch drive cage.

For more information about the rear configurations, see Riser card replacement.
