Replacing an I/O Module

Replacing an I/O Module

This topic describes how to replace an I/O module.

Scenario

  • An I/O module is faulty.
  • A new I/O module needs to be installed.
  • An I/O module needs to be replaced with a new model.

Prerequisites

  1. Preparations

    You have powered off the server node on which the target I/O module is installed.

    NOTICE:

    Back up all data on the server node before the power-off.

  2. Spare parts

    A spare I/O module and packing materials (for example, an ESD bag) are obtained and placed less than 0.5 m (1.64 ft) away from the cabinet.

  3. Data

    Cabinet number, chassis number, and slot number of the I/O module to be replaced

    Locate the I/O module to be replaced based on the preceding information, and label its panel for identification.

    Precisely mark the cable connection position on the I/O module to be replaced, and remove the power cable.

  4. Tools

    ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves

Procedure

  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves.
  2. Push the spring fastening the ejector lever, and release the spring. See step (1) in Figure 5-7.

    NOTICE:

    I/O modules support only warm swap. Ensure that the target server node data is backed up and the node is powered off.

  3. Press and hold down the ejected spring, hold the handle, and pull the I/O module out gently. See step (2) in Figure 5-7.

  4. Open the cover of the I/O module. See step (1) in Figure 5-8.
  5. Slowly lift the two PCIe cards out of the slot. See step (2) in Figure 5-8.

    NOTICE:

    Label each PCIe card with its installation position so they are replaced in the correct slots.

  6. Loosen the screws on the I/O module using a Phillips screwdriver. See step (1) in Figure 5-9.
  7. Slowly pull the I/O module horizontally out of the slot. See step (2) in Figure 5-9.

  8. Place the I/O module into an ESD bag.
  9. Take a spare I/O module out of an ESD bag.
  10. Slowly insert the I/O module horizontally in to the slot. See step (1) in Figure 5-10.
  11. Tighten the screws on the I/O module using a Phillips screwdriver. See step (2) in Figure 5-10.

  12. Install the two PCIe cards in their original slots according to the identification information. See step (1) in Figure 5-11.

    Hold the upper edges of the PCIe card with both hands, align the connecting part of the card with the slot, align the support with the convex on the I/O module panel and vertically insert the PCIe card downwards into the spare I/O module slot.

  13. Close the cover of the I/O module. See step (2) in Figure 5-11.

  14. Insert the I/O module horizontally into the slot until the I/O module snaps into the chassis, as shown in Figure 5-12.

Follow-up Procedure

  1. Power on the target server node.
  2. Optional: Connect the power cable to the new I/O module according to the identification information.

    For details, see the X6800 Server V100R003 User Guide.

  3. Optional: Configure the new I/O module based on the actual situation of the system.

    For details, see the X6800 Server V100R003 User Guide.
