Overview

This guide demonstrates how to replace a DIMM in an Open Compute V2 server. == Acronyms and Terms == * DIMM - Dual In-line Memory Module * SFP+ - Enhanced Small Form-factor Pluggable; a type of hot-pluggable transceiver

  1. The server can be powered off remotely or on the hardware itself.
    • The server can be powered off remotely or on the hardware itself.

    • Remote Power Down: Login to the server to power it off.

    • shutdown -h now;exit

    • Hardware Power Down: Press and hold the power switch for at least three seconds, as annotated.

  2. Press the button on the server sled release lever and pull the lever. This unlocks the sled from the chassis. This unlocks the sled from the chassis.
    • Press the button on the server sled release lever and pull the lever.

    • This unlocks the sled from the chassis.

  3. Disconnect the 10G SFP+ cable from the network interface controller. Disconnect the SATA / power cables connected to the boot hard disk drive. Node 1 (right-most sled) boot drive is the top drive in the chassis. Node 0 (left-most sled) boot drive is the bottom drive in the chassis.
    • Disconnect the 10G SFP+ cable from the network interface controller.

    • Disconnect the SATA / power cables connected to the boot hard disk drive.

    • Node 1 (right-most sled) boot drive is the top drive in the chassis. Node 0 (left-most sled) boot drive is the bottom drive in the chassis.

    • Disconnecting the SATA / power cable can be performed on either the motherboard or HDD end of server node 1 . However, the SATA / power cable must be disconnected from the motherboard end on node 0.

  4. Pull the server sled from the chassis.
    • Pull the server sled from the chassis.

  5. Place the server sled on a work surface.
    • Place the server sled on a work surface.

  6. Remove the lid from the server node. Engage the lid with both hands, as shown. Push the lid towards the rear of the server.
    • Remove the lid from the server node.

    • Engage the lid with both hands, as shown.

    • Push the lid towards the rear of the server.

    • Lift the lid.

  7. Press down on the (2) retention tabs. Lift the DIMM from the socket. Lift the DIMM from the socket.
    • Press down on the (2) retention tabs.

    • Lift the DIMM from the socket.

  8. Align DIMM gap with socket. Press DIMM into socket.
    • Align DIMM gap with socket.

    • Press DIMM into socket.

  9. Install the lid back on the server. Install the lid back on the server.
    • Install the lid back on the server.

  10. Slide the server back into the rack. Connect the peripheral cables (SATA / power and networking) that were previously disconnected.
    • Slide the server back into the rack.
