Replacing Memory on a Cisco Nexus 7000 Series I/O Module
Align the module to the open I/O slot in the chassis and push the module into the
slot until it makes contact with the midplane.
Simultaneously push both ejector levers inward until they come in contact with
the face of the module.
The module should be fully seated in the slot and the captive screws should be
aligned with their holes in the chassis. The EMI gasket should close the gap
between this module and the next module.
Screw in the two captive screws to the chassis and tighten them to 8 in-lb (0.9
Reconnect the copper (1000BASE-T) and fiber-optic (SFP, SFP+, FET, and X2)
I/O modules as explained in the "Connecting an I/O Module" section of the Cisco
Nexus 7000 Series Hardware Installation and Reference Guide.
Verify that the module has 8 GB of memory by using the show system resources
If you need to replace the DIMM on another Cisco Nexus 7000 Series I/O module,
repeat Steps 2 through 18.
