Installing the Switch 5300xl Series
Installation Procedures

2. Install Switch xl Modules

Install switch modules into the slots as shown in the illustration below. For
installation details, see the instructions in the manual that comes with the
C a u t i o n
Make sure you install only ProCurve Switch xl Modules. Switch gl and
vl Modules will fit into your Switch xl slots, but they will not operate.
Avoid any electrostatic discharge problems by handling the modules only by
their bulkheads.
The slot cover can be removed, and the module can be installed with either a
flat-bladed or Torx T-10 screwdriver. Retain the slot cover for future use.

Any of the supported Switch xl Modules can be installed in any of the slots.
The modules can be "hot swapped", installed after the switch is already
powered on, and normally will be immediately operational. But, if you are
replacing a module with a different type than what was previously
installed in the slot, the switch must be rebooted after the module is
installed. See "Hot Swapping the Switch Module" on
The modules employ "low-force" connectors. Using high force to insert
the modules is not needed and should not be used.
Ensure you fully insert the modules. That is, press the module into the slot
until the bulkhead on the module is contacting or is very close to
contacting the front face of the switch chassis.
Once the module is fully inserted, ensure that you screw in the two
retaining screws to secure the module in place. The screws should be
tightened until they are secure, but not overtightened.
If you do not use one or more of the slots, ensure the slot cover plate is
still attached over the slot for safe operation and proper switch cooling.
For safety, you should not have more than one module slot uncovered at
a time.
