If a hardware problem occurs, you might need to replace a component in the storage controller shelf.

Before you begin
  • You have the E-Series hardware replacement procedure.

  • You have physically located the storage appliance where you are replacing storage shelf hardware components in the data center.

About this task

To replace the battery in the storage controller, see the steps in the instructions for replacing a storage controller. Those instructions describe how to remove a controller from the appliance, remove the battery from the controller, install the battery, and replace the controller.

For instructions for the other field replaceable units (FRUs) in the controller shelves, access the E-Series procedures for system maintenance.
