To complete this procedure, you must have already completed the removal procedure. If
you are removing the processor voltage regulator module as part of a service procedure, see
Removing the 8231-E2B processor voltage regulator module and then continue to use the
following procedure.

If your system is managed by the Hardware Management Console (HMC), you can use the HMC to
replace a processor voltage regulator module. For instructions, see Exchanging a part using the
Hardware Management Console.

If you do not have an HMC, complete the following steps to replace a processor voltage regulator
module:

1. Identify the system that you will be working on by using the identify the system process to turn
on the system locate (blue) indicator. For more information, see Control panel LEDs.

2. Use the service indicator light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help identify the part. For instructions,
see Identifying a part.

3. Complete the prerequisite tasks. For instructions, see Before you begin.

4. Stop the system. For instructions, see Stopping a system or logical partition.

5. Place the system into the service position. For instructions, see Placing a rack-mounted model
into the service position.

6. Remove the service access cover. For instructions, see Removing the service access cover from
a rack-mounted model.

7. Use the service indicator light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help identify the part. For instructions,
see Identifying a part.

8. Disconnect the power source from the system by unplugging the system. For instructions, see
Disconnecting the power cords.

Attach a wrist strap to an unpainted metal surface of your hardware to prevent
electrostatic discharge (ESD) from damaging your hardware.

When using a wrist strap, follow all electrical safety procedures. A wrist strap is for
static control. It does not increase or decrease your risk of receiving electric shock
when using or working on electrical equipment.

If you do not have a wrist strap, just prior to removing the product from ESD
packaging and installing or replacing hardware, touch an unpainted metal surface of
the system for a minimum of 5 seconds.

10. Remove the voltage regulator module from its antistatic package.

11. Install the processor voltage regulator module by completing the following steps:

a. Ensure that the connector tabs (A) are pushed out to the unlocked position before you
install a new voltage regulator module. See the following figure.

b. Carefully grasp the voltage regulator module along two edges and align it with the
