Replacing the SD adapter

Use this information to replace a SD adapter.

Important: If your SD adapter option comes with VMware vSphere ESXi software preloaded, you must make configuration changes to your system UEFI before installing the SD adapter in your compute node. See the documentation that comes with the SD adapter and Using the Setup utility for information and instructions.
Before you install the SD adapter, complete the following steps:
  1. Read Safety and Installation guidelines.
  2. If the compute node is installed in a NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure, remove it (see Removing a compute node from a chassis for instructions).
  3. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.
To install the SD adapter, complete the following steps:
  1. Remove the cover (see Removing the compute node cover).
  2. Remove PCI riser-card assembly 2 (see Removing a PCI riser-cage assembly).
  3. Insert the SD cards into the SD adapter.
  4. Align the SD adapter with the alignment pins and connector; then, push downwards until it is firmly seated.
  5. Fasten the two screws.
