Use the respective NOS software utility to:
Ensure the correct software drivers for the PCI board are loaded.
Verify correct operation.
Shut down power to hot-plug slots.
Do not attempt to install or remove non-hot-plug PCI boards
with the HP NetServer in any kind of sleep state, or a system
crash or hang may occur. See Chapter 2, "Controls, Ports, and
Indicators," in the Sleep States section.
Slots 1, 2, 3, and 4 are non-hot-plug; slots 5, 6, 7, and 8 are hot-plug.
Refer to Information Assistant on the HP NetServer Online
Documentation CD-ROM that comes with the HP NetServer

For optimal performance, add PCI boards to slots 4, 5, and 6, which are the
