Replacing a DIMM

Replacing a DIMM

A storage node supports up to 24 DDR4 RDIMMs.

Impact on the System

Before replacing a DIMM, you must power off the storage node. This will adversely affect the services running on the node. Exercise caution when performing this operation.

Prerequisites

  • The replacement DIMM is ready.
  • The faulty DIMM has been located.

Precaution

  • Only professional technical support engineers are allowed to replace a DIMM.
  • A storage node has two power modules. Ensure that both are disconnected.
  • The DIMM has only one installation direction. If a DIMM cannot be properly seated in a slot, do not exert excess force on the module to avoid damaging the DIMM or slot.
  • The new memory modules must be the same as the other memory modules. If new memory modules are different from the old memory modules, it is recommended to change all old memory modules in the node.
  • Before replacing a DIMM, record the system memory capacity for check and comparison after the replacement.

Do not install DIMM in 001 (E) to ensure that data on the NVDIMM can be normally accessed.

The following lists rules to install a DIMM:

  • A storage node provides 24 double data rate 4 (DDR4) DIMM slots. Each processor supports six memory channels and each memory channel supports two DDR4 DIMMs, as shown in Figure 3-126. NVDIMM is located at 000 (A) in Figure 3-126.
    Figure 3-126  Memory riser
  • Table 3-3 lists the memory channels.

    3. In the Clear NvDimm Flash dialog box, select Yes and press Enter, as shown in Figure 3-142.

      Figure 3-142  Starting to clear NVDIMM data

    4. If the Clear NvDimm flash success! message is displayed, data in the NVDIMM is cleared, as shown in Figure 3-143.

      Figure 3-143  NVDIMM data cleared

    5. Press Enter and then F10. In the dialog box that is displayed, select Yes and press Enter to save the configuration and restart the storage node, as shown in Figure 3-144.

      Figure 3-144  Saving the configuration and restarting the storage node

  18. During the system startup, the basic input/output system (BIOS) interface is displayed. Check the system memory capacity.
    1. If information similar to the following is displayed, press Delete repeatedly. The BIOS interface is displayed, as shown in Figure 3-145.

      Figure 3-145  BIOS startup page
      NOTE:

      If a dialog box that informs you of entering the password is displayed, enter the BIOS password (default: Admin@9000).

    2. On the BIOS interface that is displayed, check the system memory capacity, as shown in Figure 3-146.

      Figure 3-146  Checking memory capacity
      NOTE:
      • If the system memory capacity equals the actual memory capacity, the installation is successful. Then restart the device.
      • If the system memory capacity is less than the actual memory capacity, the installation fails. Remove and reinsert the DIMM.

  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 DIMM, label the replaced DIMM to facilitate subsequent operations.
