1 / 2 / 5 / 6 PCIe slot S5-S8

Install PCIe adapters into these PCIe slots. See Install a PCIe adapter.

7 / 8 / 12 / 13 PCIe slot P5-P8

Install PCIe adapters into these PCIe slots. See Install a PCIe adapter.

An Ethernet port assembly can also be installed into PCIe slot P5 to function as a redundant XCC system management port (10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45).

3 / 4 / 9 / 10 Power supply bays

Install power supply units to these bays, connect them to power cords. See Install a hot-swap power supply unit.

Make sure the power cords are connected properly. See Technical specifications for the power supplies supported by this system.

For information about the LEDs, see Power supply LEDs.
