server

 

supports

 

and

 

other

 

information

 

that

 

you

 

must

 

consider

 

when

 

installing

 

an

 

adapter.

 

The

 

type

 

of

 

adapters

 

that

 

the

 

server

 

supports

 

might

 

vary,

 

depending

 

on

 

your

 

server

 

model.

 

v

adapter

 

and

 

follow

 

those

 

instructions

 

in

 

addition

 

to

 

the

 

instructions

 

in

 

this

 

section.

identifies

 

an

 

x8

that

 

is

 

designed

 

to

 

support

 

x4

 

adapters

 

and

 

x8

 

adapters

 

that

 

can

 

downshift

 

to

 

operate

 

at

 

the

bandwidth.

 

If

 

you

 

install

 

an

 

x8

 

adapter

 

in

 

slot

 

1

 

that

 

can

 

downshift

 

to

 

the

 

x4

 

bandwidth,

 

it

 

will

 

run

 

at

 

the

connector

 

can

 

be

 

used

 

for
