  2. Unscrew the dummy plate from the front of the Cisco Nexus 5548UP 10G Ethernet switch with a Philips screwdriver.
  3. Release the dummy plate locking lever.

  4. Carefully install the Port Expansion module.
    Align the module in the switch and lock the lever into place.
  5. Screw the module in place using the screw attached to the lever.
    Do not over-tighten.

  6. Repeat steps one through five for the 16 port expansion module in the second Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch.
