Removing the CX311

Removing the CX311

To replace a switch module, see section "Replacing a Switch Module" in the E9000 Server V100R001 User Guide.

Impact on the System

After the switch module is removed, all services running on the switch module stop.



  • Protective gloves
  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) gloves
  • Phillips screwdriver (PH2 is 6 mm or 0.24 in.)


Figure 3-9 Removal process


  1. Determine the CX311 to be removed.

    Figure 3-10 Slot numbers

  2. Determine the connection relationships between signal cables and ports on the CX311.

    Figure 3-11 Port types and numbers


    BMC serial port


    SYS serial port


    10GE optical port


    8G FC optical port

  3. (Optional) Remove a serial cable.

    Figure 3-12 Removing a serial cable

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

  4. Remove an optical cable and optical module.

    1. Determine the optical module type and the optical port to be removed depending on site requirements.
    2. Remove the optical cable from the optical module. See (1) and (2) in Figure 3-13.
    3. Install the dust-proof cap for the optical cable. See (3) in Figure 3-13.
      Figure 3-13 Removing an optical cable
    4. Remove the optical module horizontally from the optical port, as shown in Figure 3-14.

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

      Figure 3-14 Removing an optical module

      If 10GE or FC optical modules and fibers have been removed and 40GE optical modules and fibers do not need to be removed, go to 5.

  5. Remove the CX311.

    1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the two M3 captive screws. See (1) in Figure 3-15.
      Figure 3-15 Removing the switch module
    2. Raise the two ejector levers on the CX311 completely and pull the switch module horizontally out of the chassis. See (2) and (3) in Figure 3-15.
    3. Lower the ejector levers on the CX311. See (4) in Figure 3-15.

      An ESD bag holds only one switch module.

    4. Place the removed switch module into an ESD bag.

  6. Install a switch module filler panel.

    1. Raise the two ejector levers on the switch module filler panel and push the filler panel horizontally into the chassis as far as it will go. See (1) in Figure 3-16.
      Figure 3-16 Installing a switch module filler panel
    2. Lower the two ejector levers on the switch module filler panel. See (2) in Figure 3-16.
    3. Use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the two M3 captive screws on the switch module filler panel. See (3) in Figure 3-16.
