You can service the following components with the server in the maintenance position:
PCIe cards and cables
M.2 Flash drives
Front indicator module
If the server is installed in a rack with extendable slide-rails, use this procedure to extend the server to the maintenance position.
For instructions for stabilizing the rack, refer to Stabilize the Rack in Oracle Exadata Storage Server X7-2 EF and HC Installation Guide. Also refer to the Oracle Rack Cabinet User's Guide at https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E85660_01/index.html.
Although the cable management arm (CMA) that is supplied with the server is hinged to accommodate extending the server, ensure that all cables and cords are capable of extending.
When in an open position, the release latch covers engage the slide-rail release latches .
Caution - Deploy any rack anti-tilt mechanism before releasing the slide-rail release latches.
The server is now in the extended maintenance position.
