Installing

 

an

 

adapter

 

The

 

following

 

notes

 

describe

 

the

 

types

 

of

 

adapters

 

that

 

the

 

server

 

supports

 

and

 

other

 

information

 

that

 

you

 

must

 

consider

 

when

 

you

 

install

 

an

 

adapter.

 

v

   

Locate

 

the

 

documentation

 

that

 

comes

 

with

 

the

 

adapter

 

and

 

follow

 

those

 

instructions

 

in

 

addition

 

to

 

the

 

instructions

 

in

 

this

 

section.

 

If

 

you

 

have

 

to

 

change

 

the

 

switch

 

setting

 

or

 

jumper

 

settings

 

on

 

the

 

adapter,

 

follow

 

the

 

instructions

 

that

 

come

 

with

 

the

 

adapter.

 

v

   

Read

 

the

 

documentation

 

that

 

comes

 

with

 

your

 

operating

 

system.

 

v

   

The

 

server

 

comes

 

with

 

the

 

following

 

adapter

 

connectors

 

or

 

slots:

 

   

Slot

 

1,

 

PCI

 

Express

 

x8

 

   

Slot

 

2,

 

PCI

 

Express

 

x4

 

(x1)

 

Important:

 

The

 

x1

 

designation

 

in

 

parentheses

 

for

 

slot

 

2

 

identifies

 

an

 

x4

 

slot

 

that

 

is

 

designed

 

to

 

support

 

x1

 

and

 

x4

 

adapters

 

that

 

can

 

downshift

 

to

 

operate

 

at

 

the

 

x1

 

bandwidth.

 

For

 

example,

 

if

 

you

 

install

 

an

 

x4

 

adapter

 

in

 

slot

 

2

 

that

 

can

 

downshift

 

to

 

x1

 

bandwidth,

 

it

 

will

 

run

 

at

 

the

 

x1

 

bandwidth.

 

The

 

x4

 

connector

 

(slot

 

2)

 

can

 

be

 

used

 

for

 

x1

 

and

 

x4

 

adapters.

 

Check

 

the

 

information

 

that

 

comes

 

with

 

your

 

adapter

 

for

 

compatibility

 

information.
