Replacing a Fan Module

Replacing a Fan Module

This section describes how to replace a fan module.

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.

  • The spare part of the fan module is ready.
  • You have removed the chassis cover from the SVP. You have powered off the SVP before replacing a fan module.
  • You have located the position of the fan module to be replaced in the SVP.
  • You have obtained the rack number and chassis number of the SVP.
  • You have located the SVP based on the preceding information, and labeled its panel to prevent misoperations.
  • 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
    • 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.
