    Figure 3-2 Slot numbers

  3. Remove the switch module filler panel.

    1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the two M3 captive screws on the switch module filler panel. See (1) in Figure 3-3.
      Figure 3-3 Removing the switch module filler panel
    2. Raise the two ejector levers on the switch module filler panel completely, and pull the filler panel horizontally out of the chassis. See (2) and (3) in Figure 3-3.
    3. Store the switch module filler panel for future use.

  4. Install the CX311.

    1. Raise the two ejector levers on the CX311 completely and push the CX311 horizontally into the chassis as far as it will go. See (1) and (2) in Figure 3-4.

    10GE optical port


    8G FC optical port

  6. (Optional) Connect a serial cable.

    Figure 3-6 Connecting a serial cable

    The BMC serial port and SYS serial port are standard RJ45 ports and are connected in the same way.

  7. Connect an optical module and cable.

    1. Determine the optical module type and the optical port to be connected depending on site requirements.
    2. Insert the optical module into the optical port until the optical module is locked.

    3. Remove the dust-proof caps from the optical cable. See (1) in Figure 3-8.
      Figure 3-8 Connecting an optical cable
    4. Insert the optical cable into the optical module. See (2) in Figure 3-8.

      The methods for connecting an optical cable to a 10GE optical port and an 8G FC optical port are the same.

  8. Check the indicator status after the CX311 is powered on. For details, see Table 2-5.
