Installing a Hot-Swappable PCIe Card

Installing a Hot-Swappable PCIe Card


Install a hot-swappable PCIe card on a back I/O module (BIO) to replace the faulty PCIe card.

PCIe cards of the same type must be installed in different SCEs to provide redundant configuration between SCEs.



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

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


Spare hot-swappable PCIe card


  1. Take the spare hot-swappable PCIe card out of its ESD bag.
  2. Gently insert the hot-swappable PCIe card into the BIO as far as it will go. See Figure 6-113.

  3. Determine the locations of the status indicator, power indicator, and hot swap button on the PCIe card. See Figure 6-114.
  4. Press the hot swap button on the right of the PCIe card.
  5. Observe the power indicator on the PCIe card. Within 10 seconds during which the power indicator is blinking, you can press the hot swap button again to cancel the hot insertion operation.

    Wait for at least 10 seconds until the power indicator is steady on, which indicates that the power supply to the PCIe card is normal.
