Replacing a CPU

Replacing a CPU

A CPU provides powerful data processing capabilities and integrates the memory controller and the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) controller.

Impact on the System

  • Before replacing a CPU, you must power off the storage node. This will adversely affect the services running on the node. Exercise caution when performing this operation.
  • When you replace a CPU, wear an electrostatic discharge (ESD) wrist strap instead of ESD gloves.

Prerequisites

  • The replacement CPU is ready.
  • The faulty CPU has been located.
  • You have recorded the cable mapping of the device, securely stopped the services, executed a shut-down command in the operating system to power off the storage node, and disconnected the node from power sockets and peripheral devices.

Tools and Materials

  • Flat-head screwdrivers
  • Phillips screwdrivers
  • ESD wrist straps
  • ESD bags
  • Labels

Procedure

  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap.
  2. Use the KVM to log in to the operating system of the node, enter user name root and its password (default: Root@storage), and run poweroff command to power off the node.

    Wait until the KVM has no output. The power-off is complete.

  3. Remove all power cables and external signal cables.
