Removing the SVP

Removing the SVP

This section describes how to remove the SVP.

Impact on the System

An SVP must be powered off before the replacement. As a result, services and programs running on the SVP will be interrupted.


The SVP is heavy so that at least two persons are required to move it.
  • A spare SVP for replacement is ready.
  • The SVP that you want to replace has been located.
  • Data is backed up for the SVP before it is removed. The following data needs to be backed up:
    • IP address of a management network port on the SVP
    • User names and passwords of all SVP built-in users
    • User names and passwords separately created by the Windows operating system, which must be re-created and re-added after the SVP replacement
    • User name and password of the storage system
    • Optional: Data in Windows VMs
    • License (Backup is needed when OfficeScan License is in use.)
  • All running services and programs on the SVP are stopped, then power off the SVP.

Tools and Materials

  • Flat-head screwdriver.


  1. Power off the SVP.
  2. Disconnect all power cables and signal cables from the SVP.
