Severity: 3-Major


B2100 or B2150 blades include locking levers for securing the blade into a blade chassis (i.e. C2400). These levers should be open during blade chassis insertion. As the blade is pushed the final distance in the chassis the blade locking levers will close securing the blade in the chassis. It has been discovered that if the locking levers are closed before blade chassis insertion that the blade will power on even though the blade is not fully mounted in the chassis. Even though the blade is powered on, the blade will not properly function in the chassis.


Blades inserted with the locking levers closed do not mount properly with chassis connectors inhibiting proper operation. The blades will however power on.


This problem only exists if the user inserts a B2100 or B2150 blade into a chassis with the blade locking levers closed.


Make sure the locking levers are open prior to blade insertion as described in the product guide.
