Remove the Storage Drive Backplane for Eight-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. Attach an antistatic wrist strap to your wrist, and then to a metal area on the chassis.

      See Take Antistatic Measures.

    3. Extend the server into the maintenance position.

      See Extend the Server to the Maintenance Position.

    4. Remove the disk cage cover.

      See Remove the Disk Cage Cover From the Server.

    5. If necessary, remove the fan modules from the server.

      See Remove a Fan Module.

  2. Pull each storage drive out far enough to disengage if 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, record 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 SAS cables from the storage drive backplane to the Oracle Storage 12 Gb/s SAS PCIe RAID HBA [1].

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

    3. If present, disconnect the two optional NVMe cables from the storage drive backplane [2].
    4. If the server has a DVD drive, disconnect the power and DVD data connections from the storage drive backplane [3].

      See Remove the DVD Drive.

    5. Disconnect the auxiliary signal cable from the storage drive backplane [4]
  4. Using a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver, loosen the right-side spring-mounted screw that secures the storage drive backplane to the chassis [4].
  5. Lift up on the left-side spring tab, and then gently release the storage drive backplane from the standoff hooks and out from under the spring tab [5].
  6. Pull the storage drive backplane away from the standoff hooks and spring tab and out of the chassis [6].
  7. Place the storage drive backplane on an antistatic mat.
