Removing an I/O module

You can remove an I/O module while the BladeCenter S system is powered on. To remove it, disconnect all cables, open the release handle, and slide the module out of the BladeCenter S chassis.

Important: If you are removing one or both SAS RAID controller modules from a BladeCenter S chassis, refer to the BladeCenter S SAS RAID Controller Module Installation and User's Guide for additional steps that might need to be performed.
