Extend the Server to the Maintenance Position

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

  • Storage drives

  • Fan modules

  • Power supplies

  • DVD drive module

  • PCIe risers

  • PCIe cards and cables

  • SAS cables

  • NVMe cables

  • DIMMs

  • Internal USB flash drives

  • Motherboard battery

  • Processors

  • Disk backplane

  • FIM (front indicator module)

  • Motherboard

If the server is installed in a rack with extendable slide-rails, use this procedure to extend the server to the maintenance position.

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


    Caution  -  To reduce the risk of personal injury, stabilize the expansion rack cabinet and extend all anti-tilt devices before extending the server from the rack.

    For instructions for stabilizing the rack, see the Stabilize the Rack for Installation in Oracle Server X6-2 Installation Guide.

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

    Although the cable management arm (CMA) that is supplied with the server is hinged to accommodate extending the server, you should ensure that all cables and cords are capable of extending.

  3. From the front of the 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 [frame 1].

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

    The server is now in the extended maintenance position. .
