    Installing a C3000 or C5000 Fan Module

    C3000 and C5000 Controllers have three fan modules located on the rear of the chassis. The fan module is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field replaceable unit (FRU): You can remove and replace it without powering off the controller or disrupting controller functions.

    Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

    • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

    To install the fan module in a C3000 or C5000 Controller (see Figure 1):

    1. Remove the fan module from its bag.
    2. Using both hands, align the fan module with the guides on the fan module slot on the rear panel of the chassis.
    3. Slide the fan module into the fan module slot until it is firmly seated.
    4. Tighten both captive screws to secure the fan.
