Install a Fan Module (Switch Chassis)


Caution  -  If you remove a fan module while the server is powered on, wait 30 seconds before installing the replacement fan module. Doing so ensures that Oracle ILOM has enough time to detect the new component, which is required for the software to power on the new fan module.

  1. Insert the new fan module into the empty fan slot.

    Note -  If you are installing fan modules into a new switch unit, install them while the switch unit is in the chassis.
  2. Push the fan into the slot until it clicks into place to completely seat the fan module into the slot.
  3. Power on the server, if necessary.

    If the server powered off before you installed a new fan module, see Returning the Server to Operation.

  4. Verify that the fault has been cleared and the replaced component is operational.

    See Verify That a Fault Has Been Cleared.

  5. Return the replaced component to Oracle.

    See Prepare a Component for Return to Oracle.
