Note - The system must be completely powered down before this component is replaced. This component must be replaced only by qualified service technicians. Contact your Sun Service representative for assistance.

Before You Begin

Before you replace a fan board, ensure that you have noted which board the Common Array Manager software has identified as faulted so you know which one to replace.

  1. Power off the system.

    Refer to Completely Power Off the System.

  2. Disconnect the power cables.
  3. Slide the chassis forward so that you can access the fan boards.

    Refer to Extend the Chassis to the Maintenance Position.

    Note - If you are removing the fan boards to access the connector board, you must remove the chassis from the rack. Refer to Remove the Chassis From the Rack.

  4. Attach an antistatic wrist strap.

    Refer to Perform Static Discharge Procedures.

  5. From the front of the system, open the fan module cover by pressing the two available latches and lifting the cover.

    Refer to Access Internal Components.

  6. Remove the fan modules.

    Refer to Remove a Fan Module.

    Note - If you are replacing a defective fan board, remove only the fan modules that are installed on the defective fan board.

  7. Remove the fan board:
    1. Using a No. 1 Phillips screwdriver, loosen and remove the screw that secures the fan board to the chassis as shown in panel 1 of Removing a Fan Board.
    2. Slide the fan board away from the connector board to disengage it and lift it to remove it from the system as shown in panel 2 of Removing a Fan Board.


      Caution - If you are removing the fan boards to access other components and will return them to the system, place them on an antistatic mat after you remove them.
