Removing a FlexibleLOM from your HPE Server
Looking to remove, replace or upgrade your server's FlexibleLOM? We have put together this guide and short video to help you with the process of removing your FlexibleLOM from your HPE server.

What is a FlexibleLOM?

A flexibleLOM is a chip, or set of chips, that allow network connection within HPE ProLiant servers. LOM stands for LAN-On-Motherboard and acts as a network interface card for HPE servers. 
In this video we remove a FlexibleLOM from a HPE DL380 G9 server, however, this process can be repeated on most HPE servers in generation 7 and above. Follow the steps below or watch our short video for a visual demonstration.

Removing a FlexibleLOM:

  • Power down the server to protect the equipment and yourself from damage and harm.
  • Loosen the screws of the PCI riser and lift to remove.
  • Loosen the screws on the FlexibleLOM and gently pull the card down until it is released from the slot. Take care with this as you don't want to damage the equipment.
  • Replace the PCI riser by sliding it into position and pushing it down into place.
  • Secure the PCI riser in place by tightening the screws to hold it in place.
