|Netra Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Netra X6270 M3 Server Module) HTML Document Collection|
To safely remove the blade from the Sun Netra 6000 chassis:
The CLI prompt is displayed: ->
-> 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 - Blades can be safely removed only if the blue LED is lit, or if you are certain that a firmware update is not in progress. Pulling the blade out of the chassis during a firmware update might damage the blade, which might not be repairable in the field.
When the blade is in standby power mode, the OK LED on the front panel blinks (0.1 second on, 2.9 seconds off).
Caution - Do not install a blade into the chassis until at least 20 seconds has elapsed since the blade was disengaged from the chassis mid-plane connector.
Caution - Possible component damage or personal injury. Do not attempt to remove the blade using only the ejector levers.
Caution - Blades can be safely 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 blade out of the chassis during a firmware update might damage the blade, which might not be repairable in the field.
Note - This method is used to remove power from the blade.
Caution - Observe the proper ESD precautions when handling the blade. 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 - Always insert a blade filler panel into an empty slot within 60 seconds to reduce the possibility of blade shutdown. Do not operate the chassis with empty slots. If you operate the chassis with an empty blade 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.
