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. 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.
  2. Recable the system, as needed.
  3. Plug the power cables into the power supplies and reinstall the power cable retainers.
  4. Complete the reinstallation of the controller module:
    1. 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 to avoid damaging the connectors.

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

    2. Rotate the locking latches upward, tilting them so that they clear the locking pins, and then lower them into the locked position.
    3. 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
