Installing the controller module

After you have replaced the component in the controller, you must reinstall the controller and reboot the node.

Steps

  1. If you have not already done so, close the air duct at the rear of the controller module and reinstall the cover over the PCIe cards.
  2. Align the end of the controller module with the opening in the chassis, and then gently push the controller module halfway into the system.
    Note: Do not completely insert the controller module in the chassis until instructed to do so.
  3. Recable the system, as needed.
    If you removed the media converters (QSFPs or SFPs), remember to reinstall them if you are using fiber optic cables.
  4. Complete the reinstallation of the controller module:
    1. Make sure the latch arms are locked in the extended position.
    2. Using the latch arms, push the controller module into the chassis bay until it stops.
      Note: Do not push down on the latching mechanism at the top of the latch arms. Doing so with raise the locking mechanism and prohibit sliding the controller module into the chassis.
    3. Press down and hold the orange tabs on top of the latching mechanism.
    4. Gently push the controller module into the chassis bay until it is flush with the edges of the chassis.
      Note: The latching mechanism arms slide into the chassis.
      The controller module begins to boot as soon as it is fully seated in the chassis.
    5. Release the latches to lock the controller module into place.
    6. If you have not already done so, reinstall the cable management device.
  5. Return the node to normal operation by giving back its storage: storage failover giveback -ofnode impaired_node_name
  6. If automatic giveback was disabled, reenable it: storage failover modify -node local -auto-giveback true
