  • Page 13: Installing The Power Controller Board

    Installing the Power Controller Board ! CAUTION Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. Install the new power controller board in the server as follows. 1. Align the power controller board (A) so that its side power supply connectors (J1, J3, J5, and J8) face the power supply slots (see the figure below).
  • Page 14 3. Attach the main power cable (A) that comes from the system board power connector (see list below) to J9 on the power controller board (see the figure below). Secure the cable by threading a tie wrap (B) through tie wrap clamp (C) and around the cable, and tighten.

    Installing Jumpers and Disconnecting the Intrusion Switches To disconnect the intrusion switches and install the two new jumpers perform the following procedures. 1. Remove the cable from connector J5 on the SCSI backplane (see the following figure). The cable will be reconnected when installing the Interlock Switches later in this Guide.
  • Page 16: Installing The Led/Switch Assembly

    Installing the LED/Switch Assembly Install the new LED and presence switch assembly in the server as follows. 1. Insert the top and bottom power supply LED/switch assembly modules as shown in the following figure. In the following two figures match A to A and B to B.
  • Page 17 Note: When plugging in the Data cable connector (D) and the Top and Bottom LED cable connectors (C and E), pin 1 on these connectors must be positioned to line up with pin 1 on the corresponding connectors they are plugging into.
  • Page 18: Installing Interlock Switches

    Installing Interlock Switches To install interlock switches attach the cable connector previously removed from J5 on the SCSI backplane to J13 on the power controller board (see the following figure). Also, see step 1 in paragraph "Unplugging the Intrusion Switches and Installing Jumpers" for cable connector previously removed from J5 on the SCSI backplane.
  • Page 19: Installing The Redundant Power Supplies

    Installing the Redundant Power Supplies Install the two redundant power supplies in the server as follows: Perform the following procedures for each power supply. 1. Attach the two power supply cables to the connector bracket on the back of the power supply carrier supplied with your kit (see the following figure). Attaching the Two Power Supply Cables 2.
  • Page 20 4. Ensure that both power supplies have their line voltage selector switch set to the same voltage (see the following figure). ! CAUTION Before you plug the system power cord into an AC outlet, ensure the input line voltage setting for the power supply is correct.
  • Page 21: Installing The Server Side Panels

    Installing the Server Side Panels Use this procedure to install the two side panels on your server. (See "Removing the Server Side Panels" earlier in this document for additional information.) Install the side panels as follows. 1. From the rear of the server align the locking tabs on each side panel with the corresponding slots in the chassis.
