Extend the Storage Server to the Maintenance Position

The following components can be serviced with the storage server in the maintenance position:

  • Storage drives

  • Fan modules

  • Power supplies

  • DDR4 DIMMs

  • PCIe cards

  • NVMe cables

  • Internal USB drives

  • System battery

  • Processors

  • Disk backplane

  • Front indicator modules

  • Motherboard

  1. To prevent the rack from tipping forward when the storage server is extended, extend all rack anti-tilt devices.

    For instructions for stabilizing the rack, see Stabilize the Rack for Installation in Oracle Exadata Storage Server X5-2 Extreme Flash Installation Guide.

  2. Verify that no cables will be damaged or will interfere when the storage server is extended.

    Although the cable management arm (CMA) that is supplied with the storage server is hinged to accommodate extending the storage server, you should ensure that all cables and cords are free from obstruction by other devices.

  3. From the front of the storage server, open and hold the left and right release latch covers in the open position.

    When in an open position, the release latch covers engage the slide-rail release latches [1].


    Caution  -  Deploy any rack anti-tilt mechanism before releasing the slide-rail release latches.

  4. While the release latch covers are in the open position, slowly pull the storage server forward until the slide-rails latch into a locked position [2].

    The storage server is now in the extended maintenance position.
