Reinstalling the controller module

After you replace a component within the controller module, you must reinstall the controller module in the system chassis and boot it.

Steps

  1. If you are not already grounded, properly ground yourself.
  2. If you have not already done so, close the air duct:
    1. Swing the air duct all the way down to the controller module.
    2. Slide the air duct toward the risers until the locking tabs click into place.
    3. Inspect the air duct to make sure that it is properly seated and locked into place.

  3. 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.
  4. Recable the system, as needed.
    If you removed the media converters (SFPs), remember to reinstall them if you are using fiber optic cables.
  5. Plug the power cord into the power supply, reinstall the power cable locking collar, and then connect the power supply to the power source.
  6. Complete the reinstallation of the controller module:
    1. If you have not already done so, reinstall the cable management device.
    2. Firmly push the controller module into the chassis until it meets the midplane and is fully seated.
      The locking latches rise when the controller module is fully seated.
      Attention: Do not use excessive force when sliding the controller module into the chassis; you might damage the connectors.

      The controller module begins to boot as soon as it is fully seated in the chassis.

    3. Rotate the locking latches upward, tilting them so that they clear the locking pins, and then lower them into the locked position.
  7. Return the node to normal operation by giving back its storage: storage failover giveback -ofnode impaired_node_name
