Extend the Controller to the Maintenance Position

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

  • Storage drives

  • Fan modules

  • Power supplies

  • PCIe risers

  • PCIe cards and cables

  • SAS cables

  • DIMMs

  • Motherboard battery

  • Processors

  • Disk backplane

  • FIM (front indicator module)

  • Motherboard

Use this procedure to extend the controller to the maintenance position.

  1. To prevent the rack from tipping forward when the controller 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 controller from the rack.

    For instructions for stabilizing the rack, see Stabilize the Rack for Installation in Oracle ZFS Storage ZS5-ES Installation Guide, Release OS8.7.x.

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

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

  3. From the front of the controller, open and hold the left and right release latch covers in the open position (see Extend the Controller to the Maintenance Position ).

    When in an open position, the release latch covers engage the slide-rail release latches [1].

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

    The controller is now in the extended maintenance position.
