Replacing a 5000 Option Card

Replacing an option card on a 5000 Local Manager requires on-site access and the ability to issue a shutdown command either through the front panel or CLI.

1. Shut down the Local Manager

Use the front panel (or CLI) to issue the shutdown command. For the front panel, press the center button, then scroll down to Shutdown. Press the center button to confirm the command. Wait for the Local Manager to power down.

2. Use the thumb screws to remove the option card from the 5000

Remove console cables. If the thumb screws have been over-tightened, a screwdriver may be required to remove the option card.

3. Remove the option card and inspect the option card bay

Look inside the chassis and ensure the connector at the back of the bay is properly seated and there is nothing obstructing it. Find two tabs close to the front of the option slot and two located further back.

4. Install the new option card

Place the rear edge of the card on the two front tabs, tilt the card up and slide it back so the card edges slide below the two rear tabs. Gently push the card back until the card seats in the connector on the backplane. Re-attach the console cables.

5. Power on the Local Manager

Press the center button to power up the Local Manager. Once the display is scrolling information, log into the CLI and run show dashboard. You should see all the available ports.
