announcing the event to servers users and quiescing all
the devices connected to the server
# shutdown

NOTE: Holding down the power button for more than 4 seconds
will perform a non-graceful immediate power down of the server

19

Not every replacement procedure requires the server to be powered down. But for those that do, a
graceful power down of the server can be accomplished by first announcing the event to servers users
1
and quiescing all the devices connected to the server. Then you can perform a shutdown command or its
equivalent from the OS prompt. In the case of Solaris and Linux, this command will power down server as
well as shutting down the OS.

controller board, first remove the two fan modules. Then remove the fan shelf by pressing down on the
green labeled release latch and sliding the shelf out of the fan bay. Then you can loosen the holding
screw using a Phillips #2 screwdriver before sliding the controller board out of the chassis by its handle.
2

Take the replacement controller board and slide it into the vacant slot then secure it by tightening its holding
screw. Replace the fan shelf by sliding it into the chassis until it locks in its slot. Now replace the two fan
modules.

To install a replacement disk backplane join together the backplane and the frame. Orient the disk
backplane assembly with the connectors on the backplane facing toward the back of the server. Insert the
disk backplane into the server and position it against the back wall of the drive bay.
Hold the disk backplane assembly flat against the back wall of the drive bay and align the screw holes in
2
the assembly with the captive screws. From the front of the server, use a screwdriver to tighten the three
3
captive screws and secure the disk backplane assembly. Connect the three SAS cables to the disk
backplane. Install the disks and CPU Modules into their original slots. Then install the power supplies and
AC power cables.
