    Install an HCM

    To install an HCM:

    1. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    2. Place one hand under the HCM to support it and grasp the handle on the faceplate with the other hand.
    3. Align the rear of the HCM with the guide rails inside the chassis and slide it in completely.

      Caution: Align the HCM carefully with the guide rails and push it in evenly. Damage can result if it gets lodged in the rails because of uneven movement.

    4. Place one hand under the Routing Engine to support it and grasp the handle on the faceplate with the other hand.
    5. Align the rear of the Routing Engine with the guide rails inside the chassis and slide it in completely.

      Caution: Align the Routing Engine carefully with the guide rails and push it in evenly. Damage can result if it gets lodged in the rails because of uneven movement.

    6. Tighten the thumbscrews on the Routing Engine faceplate to secure the Routing Engine.
    7. Use the show chassis environment hcm command to verify that the HCM is functioning correctly.
