Replacing a RAID Controller Card of a 2288H V5 12-Slot Node or 5288 V5 36-Slot Node

Replacing a RAID Controller Card of a 2288H V5 12-Slot Node or 5288 V5 36-Slot Node

A RAID controller card supports RAID levels, RAID level migration, and RAID configuration memory.

Impact on the System

Before replacing a RAID controller card on a storage node, you must power off the node. This will adversely affect the services running on the node.

Prerequisites

  • A spare RAID controller card is ready.
  • The faulty RAID controller card has been located.

Precautions

None

Tools and Materials

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

Procedure

  1. Log in to the primary management node as user dsware, and run the sh /opt/dsware/client/bin/dswareTool.sh --op setServerStorageMode -ip Management IP address of the faulty node -mode 1 command to switch to the maintenance mode. To run this command, enter the name and password of CLI super administrator account admin as prompted.
  2. Remove the faulty node from its cabinet, and remove its chassis cover. For details, see Basic Operations.
  3. Remove the air duct.

    Lift the air duct according to the signs on the air duct, as shown in the following figures.
    Figure 21-1 Removing the air duct of a 2288H V5 node
    Figure 21-2 Removing the air duct of a 5288 V5 node

  4. Remove the RAID controller card.

    1. Press and hold down the latches on the RAID controller card cable connectors and pull out the cables.
    2. Unscrew the RAID controller card, as shown in step 1 in Figure 21-3.
      Figure 21-3 Removing a RAID controller card
    3. Slowly lift the RAID controller card upwards away from the connector on the mainboard, as shown in step 2 in Figure 21-3.

  5. Place the removed RAID controller card in an ESD bag.
  6. Take the spare RAID controller card out of its ESD bag.
  7. Install the RAID controller card.

    1. Remove any rubber plugs from the ports on the RAID controller card, as shown in Figure 21-4.
      Figure 21-4 Ports with rubber plugs
    2. Align the connectors on the RAID controller card with the ports on the mainboard, and insert the RAID controller card slowly into the mainboard, as shown in step 1 in Figure 21-5.
      Figure 21-5 Installing the RAID controller card
    3. Screw the RAID controller card, as shown in step 2 in Figure 21-5.
    4. Connect the cables for the RAID controller card.

  8. Install the air duct.

    Align the positioning pins on the air duct with the fixing holes on the mainboard according to the instructions on the chassis, and vertically place the air duct downwards, as shown in the following figures.

    Figure 21-7 Installing the air duct of a 5288 V5 node

  9. Install the chassis cover, and put the node back into the cabinet. For details, see Basic Operations.
  10. Log in to the primary management node as user dsware, and run the sh /opt/dsware/client/bin/dswareTool.sh --op setServerStorageMode -ip Management IP address of the faulty node -mode 0 command to switch to the normal mode. To run this command, enter the name and password of CLI super administrator account admin as prompted.
  11. Connect the storage node to the power sockets and KVM according to the cable connection labels. Do not connect network cables. Then power on the storage node. If the storage node is not powered on, press the power button on the front panel.
  12. Use the KVM to log in to the storage node as user root.
  13. Perform related operations to import the original RAID information based on the types of nodes and RAID controller cards.
