Install the management port

Use this information to install the management port.

Before installing the management port:
  1. If the slot is covered with a slot bracket, open the retention latch and remove the slot bracket from the chassis. Store the bracket in case that you later remove the management port and need the bracket to cover the place.

  2. Touch the static-protective package that contains the new management port to any unpainted surface on the outside of the server. Then, take the new management port out of the package and place it on a static-protective surface.

To install the management port, complete the following steps:

Figure 1. Installing the management port
