Removing a ServeRAID SAS controller from the SAS riser-card

A ServeRAID SAS controller is installed in a dedicated slot on the SAS riser-card.
Important: If you have installed a SAS expander card in a 16-drive-capable server,
the SAS controller is installed in a PCI riser-card assembly and is installed and
removed the same way as any other PCI adapter. Do not use the instructions in this
topic; use the instructions in "Installing a PCI adapter" on page 52 and "Removing a
PCI adapter" on page 56.
Depending on the server model, the server comes with a ServeRAID-BR10il v2
SAS/SATA controller or a ServeRAID-M1015 SAS/SATA controller installed.
You can replace the ServeRAID SAS controller with another supported ServeRAID
SAS controller. For a list of supported ServeRAID SAS controllers, see
http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/serverproven/compat/us/.
Note: For brevity, in this documentation the ServeRAID SAS controller is often
referred to as the SAS controller.
1. Align the pins on the back side of the SAS riser-card with the slots on the
server chassis.
2. Make sure that any tape drive cables are routed correctly underneath the
SAS riser-card. For information about the cable routing, see "Installing an
optional tape drive" on page 89.
3. Press the SAS controller assembly into place. Make sure that the SAS
riser-card is firmly seated and that the release latch and retention latch hold
the assembly securely.
