Purpose

Use this MOP when installing a  replacement/spare SBC 7000 chassis that does not include the AC Adapter Trays for the 451-01060 GE AC power supplies.  This MOP explains how to safely remove the old GE power supplies and AC Adapter trays from one chassis and install them into a new chassis. 

Prerequisites

You must properly shut down the chassis prior to performing this procedure so that the SSD drives do not become corrupt. For more information, see Appendix A.

Process

Use the following process to move GE AC supplies during a SBC 7000 Chassis swap. 

  1. The system should be gracefully shutdown from the BMC GUI or HOST processor. The Lights on the back should look like this.

    Note

    The photo shows Tectrol Power supplies, but the circled LEDs should still be Blue and Green.


  2. Unplug both power supplies and wait for all of the LEDs to power off. To remove SAF-D-GRID plug, press thumb on latch/button on the top of the plug and pull away from the power supply.
  3. Remove both AC power supplies and adapter trays by pushing in the hidden latch with a small screw driver and pull on the power supply handle to extract.
  4. Install both power supply and adapter trays as combined units into the new chassis.
  5. Seating the tray does not require much force. Push in with your thumb until the tray latch clicks.
  6. Fully seated Power Supply and tray.
  7. Connect the AC Power supplies to the existing SAF-D-GRID TO IEC C20 Power Cord adapter.

  8. When just swapping the power supplies in the same chassis, do not remove the tray. Hold on to the Power Supply Handle and slide the power supply latch to the left with your thumb. The supply should slide right out of the tray.

Appendix A: Properly shutting down the Host CPU from the BMC GUI.

Gracefully shut down the system from the BMC GUI or the HOST processor. If the BMC IP address is known, connect to the BMC GUI. 

  1. Enter Username "root" and password xxxxx (usually "superuser") and click Login.

  2. From the menu bar, select the Remote Control tab and click Server Power Control option.

  3. Select Power Off Server, and then click Perform Action.

The system gracefully shut down from the BMC GUI or HOST processor when the LEDs on the back of the chassis illuminate as Green and Blue, as shown in the example below.

Note

The photo shows Tectrol Power supplies, but the circled LEDs should still be Blue and Green.
