Features and Benefits
The Cisco UCS 5108 revolutionizes the use and deployment of blade-based systems. By incorporating unified
fabric, integrated, embedded management, and fabric extender technology, the Cisco Unified Computing
System enables the chassis to have fewer physical components, no independent management, and to be more
energy efficient than traditional blade server chassis.
This simplicity eliminates the need for dedicated chassis management and blade switches, reduces cabling,
and enables the Cisco Unified Computing System to scale to 40 chassis without adding complexity. The Cisco
UCS 5108 chassis is a critical component in delivering the Cisco Unified Computing System benefits of data
center simplicity and IT responsiveness.

(N20-C6508) and DC (UCSB-5108-DC) power environments.
Is six rack units (6 RU) high and can mount in an industry-standard 19-inch rack with square holes (such as
the Cisco R Series Racks) or in round hole racks when an adapter is used. The chassis can house up to eight
half-width Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers and can accommodate both half- and full-width blade form
factors.
Four single-phase, hot-swappable AC or DC power supplies are accessible from the front of the chassis. These
power supplies can be configured to support nonredundant, N+1 redundant, and grid-redundant configurations.
The rear of the chassis contains eight hot-swappable fans, four power connectors (one per power supply), and
two I/O bays for I/O modules. A passive midplane provides up to an effective maximum of 20 Gbps of I/O
bandwidth per server slot and up to 40 Gbps of I/O bandwidth for two slots, the midplane is built to eventually
support 80 Gbps per slot.
Scalability is dependent on both hardware and software. For more information, see FEX Upgrade
Considerations, on page 63 and the appropriate UCS software release notes.

Adapter Cards
Depending on the model of server in question, one to three adapter cards will reside in each blade server,
providing failover connectivity to each FEX in the chassis. The following models are available, and others
are released on an ongoing basis:
Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280
The Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280 (UCS-VIC-M82-8P) is an eight-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre
Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable mezzanine card designed exclusively for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade
Servers. The card enables a policy-based, stateless, agile server infrastructure that can present up to 256 PCIe
standards-compliant interfaces to the host that can be dynamically configured as either network interface cards
(NICs) or host bus adapters (HBAs). In addition, the Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card 1280 supports Cisco
Virtual Machine Fabric Extender (VM-FEX) technology, which extends the Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect
ports to virtual machines, simplifying server virtualization deployment.
Cisco UCS M81KR Virtual Interface Card
The Cisco UCS M81KR Virtual Interface Card is a virtualization-optimized Fibre Channel over Ethernet
(FCoE) adapter card. The virtual interface card is a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter card that supports
Cisco UCS 5108 Server Chassis Installation Guide
14
OL-20035-05
Overview
Adapter Cards
up to 128 Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) standards-compliant virtual interfaces that can
be dynamically configured so that both their interface type (network interface card [NIC] or host bus adapter
[HBA]) and identity (MAC address and worldwide name [WWNN]) are established using just-in-time
provisioning. In addition, the Cisco UCS M81KR supports network interface virtualization and Cisco VN-Link
technology.
The Cisco UCS M81KR is designed for both traditional operating system and virtualization environments. It
is optimized for virtualized environments, for organizations that seek increased mobility in their physical
environments, and for data centers that want reduced TCO through NIC, HBA, cabling, and switch reduction.
The Cisco UCS M81KR presents up to 128 virtual interfaces to the operating system on a given blade. The
128 virtual interfaces can be dynamically configured by Cisco UCS Manager as either Fibre Channel or
Ethernet devices. Deployment of applications using multiple Ethernet and Fibre Channel interfaces is no
longer constrained by the available physical adapters. To an operating system or a hypervisor running on a
Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Server, the virtual interfaces appear as regular PCIe devices.
The Cisco UCS M81KR has built-in architectural support enabling the virtual machine to directly access the
adapter. I/O bottlenecks and memory performance can be improved by providing virtual machines direct
access to hardware I/O devices, eliminating the overhead of embedded software switches.
The Cisco UCS M81KR also brings adapter consolidation to physical environments. The adapter can be
defined as multiple different NICs and HBAs. For example, one adapter card can replace two quad-port NICs
and two single-port HBAs, resulting in fewer NICs, HBAs, switches, and cables.
Cisco UCS 82598KR-CI 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
The Cisco UCS 82598KR-CI 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter is based on the Intel 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet
controller, which is designed for efficient high-performance Ethernet transport. It provides a solution for data
center environments that need low-latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet transport capability, and a dual-port connection
to the midplane of the blade server chassis.
The Cisco UCS 82598KR-CI supports Intel Input/Output Acceleration Technology (I/OAT) as well as virtual
queues for I/O virtualization. The adapter is energy efficient and can also help reduce CPU utilization by
providing large segment offload (LSO) and TCP segmentation offload (TSO). The Cisco UCS 82598KR-CI
uses Intel Virtual Machine Device Queue (VMDq) technology for the efficient routing of packets to the
appropriate virtual machine.
Cisco UCS M71KR-E Emulex Converged Network Adapter
The Cisco UCS M71KR-E Emulex Converged Network Adapter (CNA) is an Emulex-based Fibre Channel
over Ethernet (FCoE) adapter card that provides connectivity for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers in the
Cisco Unified Computing System.
Designed specifically for the Cisco UCS blades, the adapter provides a dual-port connection to the midplane
of the blade server chassis. The Cisco UCS M71KR-E uses an Intel 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller for
network traffic and an Emulex 4-Gbps Fibre Channel controller for Fibre Channel traffic all on the same
adapter card. The Cisco UCS M71KR-E presents two discrete Fibre Channel host bus adapter (HBA) ports
and two Ethernet network ports to the operating system.
The Cisco UCS M71KR-E provides both 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 4-Gbps Fibre Channel functions using
drivers from Emulex, providing:
• Compatibility with current Emulex adapter-based SAN environments and drivers

Overview
Adapter Cards
• Consolidation of LAN and SAN traffic over the same adapter card and fabric, reducing the overall
number of network interface cards (NICs), HBAs, cables, and switches
• Integrated management with Cisco UCS Manager
Cisco UCS M71KR-Q QLogic Converged Network Adapter
The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q QLogic Converged Network Adapter (CNA) is a QLogic-based Fibre Channel
over Ethernet (FCoE) adapter card that provides connectivity for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers in the
Cisco Unified Computing System.
Designed specifically for the Cisco UCS blades, the adapter provides a dual-port connection to the midplane
of the blade server chassis. The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q uses an Intel 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller for
network traffic and a QLogic 4-Gbps Fibre Channel controller for Fibre Channel traffic, all on the same adapter
card. The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q presents two discrete Fibre Channel host bus adapter (HBA) ports and two
Ethernet network ports to the operating system.
The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q provides both 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 4-Gbps Fibre Channel functions using
drivers from QLogic, providing:

Cisco UCS 2100 Series FEXes bring the unified fabric into the blade server enclosure, providing 10 Gigabit
Ethernet connections between blade servers and the fabric interconnect, simplifying diagnostics, cabling, and
management.
The Cisco UCS 2104 (N20-I6584) extends the I/O fabric between the fabric interconnects and the Cisco UCS
5100 Series Blade Server Chassis, enabling a lossless and deterministic Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
fabric to connect all blades and chassis together. Because the FEX is similar to a distributed line card, it does
not do any switching and is managed as an extension of the fabric interconnects. This approach removes
switching from the chassis, reducing overall infrastructure complexity and enabling the Cisco Unified
Computing System to scale to many chassis without multiplying the number of switches needed, reducing
TCO and allowing all chassis to be managed as a single, highly available management domain.
The Cisco 2100 Series also manages the chassis environment (the power supply and fans as well as the blades)
in conjunction with the fabric interconnect. Therefore, separate chassis management modules are not required.
Cisco UCS 2100 Series FEXes fit into the back of the Cisco UCS 5100 Series chassis. Each Cisco UCS 5100
Series chassis can support up to two FEXes, enabling increased capacity as well as redundancy.

Fan Modules
Fan Modules
The chassis can accept up to eight fan modules (N20-FAN5). A chassis must have filler plates in place if no
fan will be installed in a slot for an extended period.
LEDs
There is one LED indication of the fan module’s operational state. See Interpreting LEDs, on page 25 for
details.
Buttons and Connectors
No buttons or connectors are on a fan module.
Power Supplies
Different power supplies are available to work with the AC (N20-PAC5-2500W) or DC
(UCSB-PSU-2500DC48) versions of the chassis. To determine the number of power supplies needed for a
given configuration, use the Cisco UCS Power Calculator tool.
LEDs
Two LEDs indicate power connection presence, power supply operation, and fault states. See Interpreting
LEDs, on page 25 for details.
Buttons
There are no buttons on a power supply.
Connectors
The power connections are at the rear of the chassis on the PDU, with different types for AC or DC input.
Four single-phase, hot-swappable power supplies are accessible from the front of the chassis. These power
supplies can be configured to support non-redundant, N+1 redundant, and grid-redundant configurations.
Power Supply Redundancy
Power supply redundancy functions identically for AC and DC configured systems. When considering power
supply redundancy you need to take several things into consideration:
• Power supplies are all single phase and have a single input for connectivity to customer power source
(a rack PDU such as the Cisco RP Series PDU or equivalent).
• The number of power supplies required to power a chassis varies depending on the following factors:
Cisco UCS 5108 Server Chassis Installation Guide
OL-20035-05
21
Overview
Power Supplies
◦The total "Maximum Draw" required to power all the components configured within that
chassis—such as I/O modules, fans, blade servers (CPU and memory configuration of the blade
servers).
◦The Desired Power Redundancy for the chassis. The supported power configurations are
non-redundant, N+1 redundancy (or any requirement greater than N+1), and grid redundancy.
To configure redundancy, see the Configuration Guide for the version of Cisco UCS Central that you are
using. The configuration guides are available at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/
ps12502/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html.
Non-redundant Mode
In a non-redundant or combined mode, all installed power supplies are turned on and balance the load evenly.
Smaller configurations (requiring less than 2500 W) can be powered by a single power supply when the system
is using Cisco UCS Release 1.3(1) or earlier releases. However, a single power supply cannot provide
redundancy and if either the power input or power supply fail, the system immediately shuts down. More
common configurations require two or more power supplies (if requirements are between 2500 and 5000 W
peak) in non-redundant mode.
When using Cisco UCS Release 1.4(1) and later releases, the chassis requires a minimum of 2 power supplies.
Note
In a non-redundant system, power supplies can be in any slot. Installing less than the required number of
power supplies results in undesired behavior such as server blade shutdown. Installing more than the
required amount of power supplies may result in lower power supply efficiency. At most, this mode will
require two power supplies.
N+1 Redundancy
The N+1 redundancy configuration implies that the chassis contains a total number of power supplies to satisfy
non-redundancy, plus one additional power supply for redundancy. All the power supplies that are participating
in N+1 redundancy are turned on and equally share the power load for the chassis. If any additional power
supplies are installed, Cisco UCS Manager recognizes these “unnecessary” power supplies and places them
on standby.
If a power supply should fail, the surviving supplies can provide power to the chassis. In addition, UCS
Manager turns on any "turned-off" power supplies to bring the system back to N+1 status.
To provide N+1 protection, the following number of power supplies is recommended:
• Three power supplies are recommended if the power configuration for that chassis requires greater than
2500 W or if using UCS Release 1.4(1) and later releases
• Two power supplies are sufficient if the power configuration for that chassis requires less than 2500 W
or the system is using UCS Release 1.3(1) or earlier releases
Adding an additional power supply to either of these configurations will provide an extra level of protection.
Cisco UCS Manager turns on the extra power supply in the event of a failure and restores N+1 protection.
Cisco UCS 5108 Server Chassis Installation Guide
22
OL-20035-05
Overview
LEDs
Note
An n+1 redundant system has either two or three power supplies, which may be in any slot.
Grid Redundancy
The grid redundant configuration is sometimes used when you have two power sources to power a chassis or
you require greater than N+1 redundancy. If one source fails (which causes a loss of power to one or two
power supplies), the surviving power supplies on the other power circuit continue to provide power to the
chassis. A common reason for using grid redundancy is if the rack power distribution is such that power is
provided by two PDUs and you want the grid redundancy protection in the case of a PDU failure.
To provide grid redundant (or greater than N+1) protection, the following number of power supplies is
recommended:
• Four power supplies are recommended if the power configuration for that chassis requires greater than
2500W or if using Cisco UCS Release 1.4(1) and later releases
• Two power supplies are recommended if the power configuration for that chassis requires less than
2500W or the system is using Cisco UCS Release 1.3(1) or earlier releases
Note
Both grids in a power redundant system should have the same number of power supplies. If your system
is configured for grid redundancy, slots 1 and 2 are assigned to grid 1 and slots 3 and 4 are assigned to
grid 2. If there are only two power supplies (PS) in the a redundant mode chassis, they should be in slots
1 and 3. Slot and cord connection numbering is shown below.

Rack Requirements
Warning
Only trained and qualified personnel must be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.
Statement 1030
Rack Requirements
This section provides the requirements for installing in a standard open rack, assuming an external ambient
air temperature range of 50 to 95°F (10 to 35°C):
Note
Do not use racks that have obstructions. These obstructions could impair access to field-replaceable units
(FRUs).
The Cisco R Series Racks are an ideal choice. If other racks will be used, the rack must be of the following
type:
• Standard 19-inch (48.3 cm) four-post EIA rack, a minimum of 39.4 inches (100 cm) deep, with mounting
rails that conform to English universal hole spacing per section 1 of ANSI/EIA-310-D-1992.
• The mounting holes of the rails in the rack must be square (unless the optional round hole adapter kit is
used).
• The tool-less rack-mount kit shipped with the chassis is required. The adjustable rack rails shipped with
each enclosure extend from 29 inches (73.66 cm) to 35 inches (88.9 cm)
• Front and rear doors—If your server rack includes closing front and rear doors, the doors must have 65
percent open perforated area evenly distributed from top to bottom to permit adequate airflow.
Caution
Always use blanking panels to fill all remaining empty front panel U-spaces in the rack.
This arrangement ensures proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels results
in improper cooling that can lead to thermal damage.
The rack must also meet the following requirements:
• The minimum available vertical rack space per chassis must be six RU (rack units), equal to 10.5 inches
(26.7 cm).
Cable Management
To help with cable management, allow additional space in the rack above and below the chassis to make it
easier to route copper cables (plus up to eight copper cables per Cisco UCS 5108 server chassis) through the
rack.
Cable management can be an important factor in preventing overheating issues. In the following figure, the
“before“ illustration shows cables blocking the rear of the chassis, and preventing the fans from exhausting
warm air from the chassis. This situation causes failed DIMMs in the blade servers, and seemingly random

server shutdowns when internal temperatures exceed specification. Use cable ties and other wiring practices
to keep the rear of the chassis unobstructed as shown in the “after“ illustration.
Figure 14: Cable Management
After

Before
Airflow Considerations
Airflow through the chassis is from front to back. Air enters the chassis through the blade servers and power
supply grills at the front of the chassis and exits through the fan modules on the back of the chassis. To ensure
proper airflow, follow these guidelines:
• Maintain ambient airflow throughout the data center to ensure normal operation.
• Consider the heat dissipation of all equipment when determining air-conditioning requirements. Do not
allow the exhaust of one system to be the intake for another system.
• When evaluating airflow requirements, take into consideration that the hot air generated by equipment
at the bottom of the rack can be drawn in the intake of the equipment above.
• Make sure that the exhaust at the rear of the chassis is unobstructed for at least 24 in. (61 cm). This
includes obstruction due to messy cabling practices.
• Some blade servers ship with internal shrouds that are placed over the DIMMs and CPUs. They are used
to channel airflow to where it is needed the most. If a shroud can be used a given model, it should be
used.
• If an enclosed rack is used, the front door must be 65 percent perforated to ensure adequate airflow to
the servers.

Moving Server Chassis
Moving Server Chassis
When lifting the chassis, be aware of its weight, and follow these guidelines:
Caution
Do not try to lift the chassis using the handles on the side. These handles are intended only for moving
and adjusting the chassis position.
• Never lift the chassis alone—Always use two people to lift the chassis. If available, use a scissor jack
or other lifting device designed for installing heavy equipment into data center racks.
• Disconnect all power and external cables before lifting the chassis.
• Remove all FEXes, power supplies, fans, and servers from the chassis before lifting.
• Ensure that your footing is solid and the weight of the system is evenly distributed between your feet.
• Lift the system slowly, keeping your back straight. Lift with your legs, not with your back. Bend at the
knees, not at the waist.
Caution
Do not remove the Power Distribution Unit (PDU) located at the back of the chassis.
Installation Guidelines
When installing the chassis, follow these guidelines:
• Plan your site configuration and prepare the site before installing the chassis. See Site Planning and
Maintenance Records, on page 79 for the recommended site planning tasks. For details, see the Cisco
UCS Site Preparation Guide.
• Record the information listed in Site Planning and Maintenance Records, on page 79 as you install and
configure the chassis.
• Ensure that there is adequate space around the chassis to allow for servicing the chassis and for airflow.
• Ensure that the air-conditioning meets the heat dissipation requirements listed in Technical Specifications,
on page 69
• Ensure that the cabinet or rack meets the requirements listed in Rack Requirements, on page 30.
Note
Jumper power cords are available for use in a rack. See Specifications for the Cisco
UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis Power Supply Units, on page 72.
• Ensure that the site power meets the power requirements listed in Technical Specifications, on page
69. We recommend that you use a UPS to protect the UCS system. Using an unprotected supply exposes
you to a risk of system failure due to input supply voltage variations or failures.
Cisco UCS 5108 Server Chassis Installation Guide

OL-20035-05
Installation
Required Equipment
Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become unstable with systems
such as the Cisco UCS, which can have substantial current draw fluctuations due to fluctuating data
traffic patterns.
• Ensure that circuits are sized according to local and national codes. For North America, the power supply
requires a 20 A circuit.
To prevent loss of input power, ensure that the total maximum loads on the circuits supplying power to
the chassis are within the current ratings for the wiring and breakers.
• Use the following torque values when installing the chassis:
◦10-32 screws: 20 in-lb
Required Equipment
Before you begin the installation, ensure that you have the following items:
• Number 1 and number 2 Phillips-head screwdrivers with torque measuring capabilities
• Tape measure and level
• ESD wrist strap or other grounding device
• Antistatic mat or antistatic foam
Unpacking and Inspecting the Chassis
Caution
Tip
Note
When handling chassis components, wear an ESD strap and handle modules by the carrier edges only.
Keep the shipping container in case the chassis requires shipping in the future.
The chassis is thoroughly inspected before shipment. If any damage occurred during transportation or any
items are missing, contact your customer service representative immediately.

Cabling Considerations for Fabric Port Channels
Step 7
Replace the terminal cover as shown. This cover should always be in place when power is applied to the
terminals.
Step 8 Connect the other end of the power wires to a DC-power input source.
Step 9 Set the DC disconnect switch in the circuit to ON.
Caution
In a system with multiple power supplies, connect each power supply to a separate DC power
source. In the event of a power source failure, if the second source is still available, it can maintain
system operation.
Step 10 Verify power supply operation by checking the power supply's front-panel LEDs. You should see the following:
• The LED labeled INPUT OK is green.
• The LED labeled OUTPUT FAIL is not lit.
Step 11 Check the power supply and system status from the UCS console by entering the show system command or
the show power command, do using the GUI. For more information on these commands, refer to the command
reference for your software.
Cabling Considerations for Fabric Port Channels
When you configure the links between the Cisco UCS 2200 Series FEX and a Cisco UCS 6200 series fabric
interconnect in fabric port channel mode, the available VIF namespace on the adapter varies depending on
where the FEX uplinks are connected to the fabric interconnect ports.
Inside the 6248 fabric interconnect there are six sets of eight contiguous ports, with each set of ports managed
by a single chip. When uplinks are connected such that all of the uplinks from an FEX are connected to a set
of ports managed by a single chip, Cisco UCS Manager maximizes the number of VIFs used in service profiles
deployed on the blades in the chassis. If uplink connections from an IOM are distributed across ports managed
by separate chips, the VIF count is decreased.

Adding a second link to a fabric port channel port group is disruptive and will automatically increase the
available amount of VIF namespace from 63 to 118. Adding further links is not disruptive and the VIF
namespace stays at 118.

Installation
Proper FEX and Fabric Interconnect Port Connectivity
Caution
Linking a chassis to two fabric port channel port groups is disruptive and does not affect the VIF namespace
unless it is manually acknowledged. The VIF namespace is then automatically set to the smaller size fabric
port channel port group usage (either 63 or 118 VIFs) of the two groups.
For high availability cluster mode applications, symmetric cabling configurations are strongly recommended.
If the cabling is asymmetric, the maximum number of VIFs available is the smaller of the two cabling
configurations.
For more information on the maximum number of VIFs for your Cisco UCS environment, see the configuration
limits document for your hardware and software configuration.
Proper FEX and Fabric Interconnect Port Connectivity
Note
The following illustrations are for example only; you do not need to skip available ports to provide future
expansion room. See the UCS Manager configuration guide for FI port configuration considerations and
limitations.
Observe the following guidelines:
• When you connect the server chassis to the fabric interconnect, do not connect the FEXes to the fabric
interconnect’s expansion modules. While similar in appearance to the other ports on the fabric interconnect,
the expansion modules are never used for direct chassis connections. They are typically used for SAN
connectivity or network uplink.
• All ports of a FEX must be connected to only one fabric interconnect. You must connect each fabric
interconnect to the chassis through its own FEX.
• If you need to connect to a second fabric interconnect, do the following:
◦The chassis must have a second FEX installed.
◦All ports of the second FEX must be connected to the second fabric interconnect only because the
FEX is a fabric extender, which can only be connected to a single switch, or in this case, a fabric
interconnect.

With two people holding the chassis, make sure that its weight is fully supported.
Gently slide the chassis off the rails, and out of the rack.
Replace the modules and blades in the server chassis.
Repacking the Chassis
If you need to repack the chassis, remove it from the rack by reversing the steps in the Removing the Chassis
from a Rack, on page 50 section, and then pack it for shipment. If possible, use the original packing materials
and container to pack the chassis. If you are returning the chassis to Cisco, contact your Cisco customer service
representative to arrange for return shipment to Cisco.
SFP+ Transceivers
Each FEX within the chassis supports Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) copper or optical transceivers.
Each transceiver runs at 10 Gb.
SFP+ Twinax Copper Transceivers
The FEX also supports Twinax copper transceivers. The enhanced SFP+ 10-Gb Ethernet transceiver is a
bidirectional device with a transmitter and receiver in the same physical package. It has a 20-pin connector
on the electrical interface.

Note
Both grids in a power redundant system should have the same number of power supplies. If your
system is configured for grid redundancy, slots 1 and 2 are assigned to grid 1 and slots 3 and 4 are
assigned to grid 2. If there are only two power supplies in a redundant- mode chassis, they should
be in slots 1 and 3. This would be a very unusual configuration, with a single B200 blade server in
the chassis. A larger configuration would require two power supplies per grid. Slot and cord connection
numbering is shown below.

Removing a Power Supply
Caution
If you are using the Cisco UCS 5108 server chassis with one power supply (this is only supported in earlier
versions of the system software), removing the power supply will cause the servers and chassis to shut
down. If you are using more than two power supplies, and you remove one of them, the servers continue
to operate as long as the other power supplies are sufficient to meet the power requirements of the number
of servers in the chassis.
Procedure
Step 1
Loosen the captive screw on the front of the power supply.
Step 2
Lift up the power supply’s handle to unseat the power supply.
Using the lever, pull the power supply from its slot. Place your other hand under the power supply to support
it while you slide it out of the chassis.
Install a blank power supply filler panel (N20-CBLKP) if the power supply bay is to remain empty.

Pull the PDU clear of the chassis by pulling on the captive screws. Support its weight from below.
Installing and Removing FEXes
The chassis houses two FEXes (Cisco UCS 2104XP, UCS 2208XP, UCS 2204XP) that allow the blade servers
in the chassis to communicate with Cisco UCS fabric interconnects. FEXes can have either four or eight I/O
ports.
Note
A FEX is sometimes referred to as an “I/OM” or IO Module.
FEX Upgrade Considerations
Before you install a pair of UCS 2208XP FEXes to an existing UCS chassis using a pair of UCS 2104XPs,
or add a new chassis with a pair of UCS 2208XP FEXes to a UCS instance you must perform a full upgrade
to UCS software version 2.0(1) or later. The UCS 2208XP FEX is not recognized by earlier software releases.
Before you install a pair of UCS 2204XP FEXes to an existing UCS chassis using a pair of UCS 2104XPs,
or add a new chassis with a pair of UCS 2204XP FEXes to a UCS instance you must perform a full upgrade
to UCS software version 2.0(2) or later. The UCS 2204XP I/O Module is not recognized by earlier software
releases.
Upgrading from a pair of UCS 2104XP to a pair of UCS 2200 series modules should be done first on the FEX
connected to the standby Fabric Interconnect, standby should be made active, then the FEX connected to the
new standby Fabric Interconnect can be upgraded.
If you are also performing an upgrade on the fabric interconnects, perform the upgrades separately. Attempting
to upgrade both FEXes and fabric interconnects in a single process will likely complicate any reconfiguration
needed on the FI ports.
Adding any M3 model blade server may require an upgrade from UCS 2104XP to UCS 2208 series FEXes.
M3 blade servers use newer MLOM and adapter card models that are not fully compatible with the older FEX
model.
Before you disconnect any data cables, make a record of which FEX ports are connected to which Fabric
interconnect ports.

Installing and Removing Components
Removing a FEX
Configurations of 1, 2, 4, or 8 10 GB connections between FEX and Fabric interconnect are supported in
UCS. If your UCS 2104XP has 4 physical connections and you want more, the next available upgrade step
is the full 8 connections on the UCS 2208XP. You should verify that the FEX upgrade is completed with no
problems before adding the connections for ports 5-8.
If you intend to implement the Fabric port channel feature available in UCS software version 2.0, you may
need to rearrange the cabling between FEX and Fabric Interconnect before performing the feature configuration.
Fabric port channel will require that all physical links from a given FEX physically connect to a contiguous
block of ports (1 to 8 or 9 to 16, and so on). This feature requires a Cisco UCS M82-8P Virtual Interface Card
in at least one blade server, and the UCS 2208XP FEX. See the Fabric Port Channel sections in the configuration
guides for more details.

Note
If you plan to remove a FEX for an extended period of time, you must replace it with the N20-CBLKI
blank to avoid EMI issues. Blanks can be order from Cisco.

Installing and Removing a Fan Module
You can hot swap a fan module (N20-FAN5) without causing an electrical hazard or damage to the system.
However, you can only remove one fan module while the system is operating. Removing more than one fan
module could cause overheating.
Note
When a fan is removed, louvers inside the chassis prevent recirculation of air into the system or loss of
cooling. However, you should not leave the chassis for extended periods of time without all fan modules
in place.

DC wiring must meet your local codes and regulations, we recommend using a licensed local electrician to
install the DC wiring needed.
To determine the number of power supply units needed for the blade server, remember that each single slot
server is budgeted a max 550 W and each full width server is budgeted a max 1100 W. For a more detailed
estimate, contact Cisco Sales.
Supported AC Power Cords and Plugs
The AC power connectors on the blade server chassis PDU use an IEC 320 C20 socket. Each chassis power
supply has a separate power cord. The power cord that you use to connect the blade server power supply units
to an AC power source will have an IEC 320 C19 plug on one end and on the other end one that conforms to
the AC power outlet specifications for your country. See the following table to determine which cord to order
for your blade server chassis power supply units. When you determine which power cord you need to order,
you can verify that its plugs conform to the power outlets for your facility by clicking on its reference link.
The jumper power cords, for use in racks, are available as an optional alternative to the standard power cords.
The optional jumper power cords have an IEC C19 connector (such as a Cisco RP Series PDU) on the end
that plugs into the chassis’ PDU and an IEC C20 connector on the end that plugs into an IEC C19 outlet
receptacle. For more information, contact your Cisco Systems representative.
Note
Only the regular power cords or jumper power cords provided with the chassis are supported.
