Installation overview
This section describes installation precautions, how to install the adapter, and how to connect the network
cable.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, consult the safety
information and user documentation provided with the server before attempting the installation.
Many servers are capable of providing energy levels that are considered hazardous and are intended to
be serviced only by qualified personnel who have been trained to deal with these hazards. Do not
remove enclosures or attempt to bypass any interlocks that may be provided for the purpose of
removing these hazardous conditions.
WARNING: Installation of this adapter should be performed by individuals who are both qualified in
the servicing of computer equipment, and trained in the hazards associated with products capable of
producing hazardous energy levels.
This adapter is intended to be installed in Certified (UL or CSA) ITE equipment having instructions for
adding and removing user installed components such as PCI, PCI-X, and PCI Express devices. Refer to
the equipment instructions to verify that it is suitable for user installed components and that it has the
power capacity to support all of the installed components.
NOTE: Before removing the cover of your server, refer to the HP documentation for the proper
methods for installing a PCI Express card and avoiding electric shock hazards.
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the
system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage
system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
