  2. Using a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver, install and tighten the two spring-mounted screws to secure the storage drive backplane to the chassis [1].
  3. Reconnect the cables to the storage drive backplane.
    1. Reconnect the SAS cable to the storage drive backplane from the rear-mounted storage drives, and the two SAS cables to the storage drive backplane from the Oracle Storage 12 Gb/s SAS PCIe RAID HBA [2].

      To ensure proper SAS cable connections, see Install SAS Storage Drive Cables.

    2. If present, reconnect the two optional NVMe cables to the storage drive backplane [3].

      To ensure proper NVMe cable connections, see Install NVMe Cables.

    3. Reconnect the two power cables and the auxiliary signal cable to the storage drive backplane [4].

      Use the following cable part number table to ensure proper cable connections.

      Cable Part Number
      Auxiliary signal cable
      Power cable, right
      Power cable, center
  4. Return the server to operation.
    1. Install the fan assembly door top cover.

      See Install the Fan Assembly Door.

    2. Install the fan modules and close the fan assembly door.

      See Install a Fan Module.

    3. Install all storage drives into the storage drive cage.

      See Install an HDD or SSD Storage Drive.

    4. Return the server to the normal rack position.

      See Return the Server to the Normal Rack Position.

    5. Reconnect the power cords to the power supplies, and power on the server.

      See Reconnect Power and Data Cables and Power On the Server. Verify that the power supply AC OK LED is lit.

    Note -  IMPORTANT: When the disk backplane is replaced, the key identity properties (KIP) of the disk backplane is programmed by Oracle ILOM to contain the same KIP as the other quorum member components. If you have removed other quorum member components, you might need to manually program the product serial number (PSN) into the new disk backplane. For more information, refer to FRU Key Identity Properties (KIP) Automated Update.
