Replacing the PSU Backplane

Replacing the PSU Backplane

Impact on the System

  • Before replacing the PSU backplane, you must power off the P36E or C36E node. This will adversely affect the services running on the node. Exercise caution when performing this operation.


  • The replacement PSU backplane is ready.
  • 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 P36E or C36E node, and disconnected the node from power sockets and peripheral devices.

Tools and Materials

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


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves.
  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.
  4. Remove the storage node from the cabinet.
    1. Loosen the captive screws on the panel using a Phillips screwdriver, as shown in step 1 in Figure 4-59.

    2. Slowly pull the storage node out along the guide rails, as shown in step 2 in Figure 4-59.
    3. Press the release buttons on both sides and pull the storage node out of the cabinet along the guide rails, as shown in step 3 in Figure 4-59.
  5. Remove the enclosure cover.
    1. Use a flat-head screwdriver to loosen the latch that secures the ejector lever of the enclosure cover, as shown in step 1 in Figure 4-60.
    2. Open the ejector lever to push the enclosure cover backward, as shown in step 2 in Figure 4-60.

  7. Remove all PSUs. For details, see Replacing a Power Module.
  8. Remove all cables from the PSU backplane.
  9. Remove the PSU backplane.
    1. Lift the PSU backplane to remove it. See Figure 4-62.

  10. Place the removed PSU backplane in an ESD bag.
  11. Take the spare PSU backplane out of its ESD bag.
  12. Install the PSU backplane.
    1. Place the PSU backplane in the planned position, and push it downward until it cannot move. See Figure 4-63.

  13. Connect cables to the PSU backplane.
  14. Install PSUs. For details, see Replacing a Power Module.
  15. Align the positioning pins on the air duct with the fixing holes on the mainboard, and vertically place the air duct downwards, as shown in Figure 4-64.

    2. Tighten the latch to secure the ejector lever of the enclosure cover using flat-head screwdriver, as shown in step 3 in Figure 4-65.
  17. Put the storage node into the cabinet.
    1. Arrange at least four persons to lift the storage node on both sides, align the inner rails on the storage node with the holding rails, and push the storage node into the cabinet along the holding rails, as shown in Figure 4-66.

  18. Connect the storage node to the power sockets and peripheral devices according to the cable connection labels. Then power on the storage node.
  19. Inspect the system using SmartKit. Choose Home > Storage > Routine Maintenance > More > Inspection to check the system status. For details, see the OceanStor 9000 V5 Routine Maintenance.

    • If all inspection items are successful: The inspection is successful.
    • If some inspection items fail the inspection: The inspection is failed. Rectify the faults by taking recommended actions in the inspection reports. You need to reperform inspection after rectifying. If the inspection is still failed, contact Huawei technical support.

Follow-up Procedure

After replacing the PSU backplane, label the replaced PSU backplane to facilitate subsequent operations.
