Remove the Storage Drive Backplane for Twenty-Four Drive Systems

  1. Prepare the server for service.
    1. Power off the server and disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.

      See Powering Down the Server.

    2. Extend the server into the maintenance position.

      See Extend the Server to the Maintenance Position.

    3. Attach an antistatic wrist strap to your wrist, and then to a metal area on the chassis.

      See Take Antistatic Measures.

    4. Open the server fan assembly door, and remove the fan modules from the server.

      See Remove a Fan Module.

    5. Remove the fan assembly door from the server.

      See Remove the Fan Assembly Door From the Server.

  2. Pull each storage drive out far enough to disengage it from the disk backplane.

    See Remove an HDD or SSD Storage Drive.


    Note -  It is not necessary to completely remove the storage drives from the server; simply pull them out far enough to disengage them from the disk backplane. If you do remove the storage drives from the server, make a note of their locations so that you can reinstall them in the same locations.
  3. Disconnect the cables from the storage drive backplane.
    1. Disconnect the two power cables and the auxiliary signal cable from the storage drive backplane [1].

    2. If present, disconnect the two optional NVMe cables from the storage drive backplane [2].
    3. Disconnect the SAS cable from the storage drive backplane to the rear-mounted storage drives, and the two SAS cables from the storage drive backplane to the Oracle Storage 12 Gb/s SAS PCIe RAID HBA [3].

      Note the cable connections in order to ease proper reconnection of the cables.

  4. Using a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver, loosen the two spring-mounted screws that secure the storage drive backplane to the chassis [4].
  5. Lift the storage drive backplane up to release it from the standoff hooks [4].
  6. Pull the storage drive backplane away from the standoff hooks and out of the chassis.
  7. Place the storage drive backplane on an antistatic mat.
