Unseat a Switch Unit

Some component replacement tasks (for example, those for interconnects and PDECBS) require you to unseat switch units before you perform them.

  1. Prepare the switch unit for removal.

    See Prepare a Switch Unit for Removal.

  2. Verify that the blue Ready to Remove LED on the switch unit is on.

    See Switch Unit LEDs.

  3. Unseat the switch unit.

    Note -  If you are unseating a switch unit so you can replace it with a new one, ensure that you have already removed the fan modules from the switch unit.

    1. Pull the ejector arms out to disengage the switch unit from the server.
    2. Press the arms back toward the unit to prevent them from being damaged.
  4. Pull the switch unit out of the server less than halfway.
