Keep the following considerations in mind when handling or shipping the energy storage modules (ESMs) in the Sun Storage F5100 flash array:
Caution - When replacing an ESM, ensure that you follow the replacement procedures provided in the Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array Service Manual.
When replacing an ESM, follow these guidelines:
Use only an ESM that has been provided by Oracle.
Use the ESM only as described in the product service manual.
Do not disassemble ESMs.
Dispose of or recycle ESMs properly in accordance with local regulations, noting the warning label located on the ESMs.
Do not attempt to recharge ESMs outside of the system.
Fully charge ESMs before placing the array into service. This process can take up to 10 minutes. You will know an ESM is fully charged when the green OK LED changes from a slow blink to steady on.
Fully discharge the ESM before removing it.
For information on how to discharge an ESM, see the Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array Service Manual.
Caution - If AC power fails while an ESM is removed from the system, data on the FMods that are backed up by the removed ESM could be lost. Do not leave an ESM bay empty any longer than necessary to complete the replacement procedure.
If you ship an ESM, you must do so in accordance with all International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations.
