7.4.2 Inactive removal


7.4.2 Inactive removal
This section describes the workflows for inactive/hot and inactive/cold FRU removal. References to detailed descriptions are written in the workflow. See any of them as required. You can perform inactive removal work only for a system with a building block configuration.
Inactive removal has the following patterns:
Inactive/hot removal (for an internal disk or PCIe card)
Inactive/hot removal can be performed on an internal disk and a PCIe card. Perform the following procedure to remove the unit.

Table 7-27  Inactive/hot removal work procedure (for an internal disk or PCIe card)
Item Work procedure Reference
1 Opening the rack door  
2 Switching the mode switch on the operation panel to Service mode "5.2  Switching the Mode Switch to Service Mode"
3 Checking the operating condition of the system and the I/O device usage status "5.3  Checking the Operating Condition and Resource Usage Status"
4 Powering off the chassis requiring maintenance "5.5  Powering Off the Physical Partition Requiring Maintenance"
5 Lowering the cable support for maintenance on a PCIe card "5.9.2  Lowering the cable support"
6 Removing the target FRU See the removal procedure for each FRU
"8.3  FRU Removal and Installation Flow"
"10.3  FRU Removal and Installation Flow"
7 Securing the cable support after maintenance on a PCIe card "6.1.2  Fixing the cable support"
8 Diagnosing the chassis requiring maintenance "6.3.1  Diagnosing the system board"
9 Confirming that there is no problem with the chassis after the removal "6.3.3  Checking the FRU status after maintenance"
10 Returning the mode switch on the operation panel to Locked mode "6.6  Returning the Mode Switch to Locked Mode"
11 Powering on the chassis requiring maintenance "6.7  Powering On the Physical Partition Requiring Maintenance"
12 Closing the rack door  
Inactive/cold removal (building block configuration only)
Inactive/cold removal can be performed on the CPU memory unit upper, a PCI Express card, memory, and an internal disk in a building block configuration. Perform the following procedure to remove the unit.

*1 The testsb command is executed during replacefru command processing. However, if that is canceled, diagnose the system board before incorporating the chassis requiring maintenance into the physical partition.
