Removing a Hot-Swappable PCIe Card

Removing a Hot-Swappable PCIe Card


Remove a hot-swappable PCIe card from a back I/O module (BIO) if the PCIe card has failed.



The support for hot swap of PCIe cards depends on the operating system (OS) type. By default, the following OSs support hot swap of PCIe cards:

  • Windows
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 (A driver must be loaded.)
  • SLES 12
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and 7
  • You can obtain the OS versions and drive download links from the Server Compatibility Checker.

Only SLES and RHEL support hot swap of PCIe SSD cards.


No data preparation is required for this operation.


  • ESD gloves
  • Packaging materials, for example, an ESD bag


  1. Determine the locations of the status indicator, power indicator, and hot swap button on the PCIe card. See Figure 6-111.
  2. Press the hot swap button on the right of the PCIe card.
  3. Wait until the power indicator on the PCIe card is off. After the power indicator is off, the PCIe card is removable.
