The server module must be removed from the Sun Blade 6000 chassis to:
Service CRU and FRU internal system components such as: system battery, cables, rear USB drives, DIMMs, processors (CPU), REMs and FEMs.
Access Fault Remind buttons for processors and DIMMs.
Note - You do not need to remove the server module from the Sun Blade chassis to service storage drive components on the Sun Blade X3-2B front panel.
The CLI prompt appears: –>
-> set /System/ action=prepare_to_remove
-> show /System/ health
health = Offline
Offline status ensures that no firmware updates are taking place before you remove the blade.
Caution - Component damage or data loss. Server modules should be removed only if the blue LED is lit, or if you are certain that a firmware update is not in progress. Pulling the server module out of the chassis during a firmware update might damage the server module, which might not be repairable in the field.
When the server module is in standby power mode, the OK LED on the front panel blinks (0.1 second on, 2.9 seconds off).
Caution - Component damage or data loss. Do not install a server module into the chassis until at least 20 seconds has elapsed since the server module was disengaged from the chassis mid-plane connector.
The result of this action disengages the server module, places it in a no-power state, and leaves it protruding approximately three inches from the front of the chassis.
Caution - Component damage or personal injury. Do not attempt to remove the server module using only the ejector levers.
Caution - Component damage or data loss. Server modules should be removed only if the blue Ready to Remove LED is lit, or if you are certain that a firmware update is not in progress. Pulling the server module out of the chassis during a firmware update might damage the server module, which might not be repairable in the field.
Caution - Component damage or personal injury. Blades can weigh up to 22 lbs (10kg). Use two hands to install or remove the blade from the chassis.
Note - This method is used to remove power from the server module. See Complete Power Removal.
Caution - Component damage. Observe the proper ESD precautions when handling the server module. Wear a securely grounded ESD wrist strap. Handle components by the edges only. Do not touch metal contacts. Damage to system components can occur through improper handling.
Caution - Over-temperature condition. Always insert a server module filler panel into an empty slot within 60 seconds to reduce the possibility of server module shutdown. Do not operate the chassis with empty slots. If you operate the chassis with an empty server module slot, you might notice a reduction in system performance. Possible system and component over-temperature warnings, shutdown, and heat-related damage might be caused by empty chassis slots.
