    Removing an IOC from VSE1100 and VSE2100

    VSE1100 has a four-port input/output controller (IOC) and VSE2100 has a two-port IOC. When you remove an IOC, the Virtual Services Engine continues to function.

    An IOC installs horizontally in the front of the appliance. The IOCs are hot-insertable and hot-removable.

    To remove an IOC:

    1. Power off the device. See Powering Off Virtual Services Engines for more information.
    2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to an ESD point on the appliance.

      For more information about ESD, see Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage on VSE.

    3. Loosen the captive thumbscrews located at the sides of the IOC panel.
    4. Carefully slide the IOC out of the appliance.
    5. Place the IOC in its antistatic bag, being careful not to touch components, pins, leads or solder connections.
    6. Cover the empty slot with a blank filler panel, and tighten the filler panel's captive thumbscrews.
