Remove SG6000-CN controller from cabinet or rack


Remove the SG6000-CN controller from a cabinet or rack to access the top cover or to move the controller to a different location.

Before you begin
  • You have labels to identify each cable that is connected to the SG6000-CN controller.

  • You have physically located the SG6000-CN controller where you are performing maintenance in the data center.

  • You have shut down the SG6000-CN controller.

    Caution Don't shut down the controller using the power switch.
  1. Label and then disconnect the controller power cables.

  2. Wrap the strap end of the ESD wristband around your wrist, and secure the clip end to a metal ground to prevent static discharge.

  3. Label and then disconnect the controller data cables and any SFP+ or SFP28 transceivers.

    Important To prevent degraded performance, don't twist, fold, pinch, or step on the cables.
  4. Loosen the two captive screws on the controller front panel.

  5. Slide the SG6000-CN controller forward out of the rack until the mounting rails are fully extended and you hear the latches on both sides click.

    The controller top cover is accessible.

  6. Optional: If you are fully removing the controller from the cabinet or rack, follow the instructions for the rail kit to remove the controller from the rails.

After replacing the part, return the failed part to NetApp, as described in the RMA instructions shipped with the kit. See the Part Return & Replacements page for further information.
