For the ASA A800 storage system, you can perform maintenance procedures on the following components.
The boot media stores a primary and secondary set of boot image files that the system uses when it boots.
The chassis is the physical enclosure housing all the controller components such as the controller/CPU unit, power supply, and I/O.
A controller consists of a board, firmware, and software. It controls the drives and implements the ONTAP functions.
You must replace a DIMM (dual in-line memory module) when a memory mismatch is present, or you have a failed DIMM.
A drive is a device that provides the physical storage media for data.
The fan cools the controller.
The NVDIMM (non-volatile dual in-line memory module) manages the data transfer from the volatile memory to the non-volatile storage, and maintains data integrity in the event of a power loss or system shutdown.
A NVDIMM battery is responsible for maintaining power to the NVDIMM module.
A PCIe (peripheral component interconnect express) card is an expansion card that plugs into the PCIe slot on the motherboard.
A power supply provides a redundant power source in a controller shelf.
Real-time clock battery
A real time clock battery preserves system date and time information if the power is off.
