You might need to replace the E5600SG controller.
Before you begin
You must have access to the following resources:
- E-Series hardware replacement information on the NetApp Support Site at mysupport.netapp.com
- E5600 series documentation on the Support Site
About this task
If both controllers are functioning sufficiently to allow for a controlled shutdown, you can shut down the E5600SG controller
first to interrupt the connectivity to the E2700 controller
- Use antistatic protection.
- Label each cable that is attached to the E5600SG controller, so you can reconnect the cables correctly.
Attention: To prevent degraded performance, do not twist, fold, pinch, or step on the cables. Do not bend the cables tighter than a 5-cm (2-in) radius.
- If the StorageGRID Webscale appliance is running in a StorageGRID Webscale system, shut down the E5600SG controller.
- At the Storage Node, access a command shell and log in as root using the
password listed in the
- Stop all StorageGRID Webscale services:/etc/init.d/servermanager stop
- Shut down the E5600SG controller:shutdown -h now
- Turn off the power to the enclosure, and wait until all LED and seven-segment display activity on the rear of the controller has stopped.
- Remove the cables.
- Remove the controller, as described in the E5600SG controller documentation.
- Insert the new controller, as described in the E5600SG controller documentation.
- Replace all cables.
- Turn the power back on to the enclosure.
- Monitor the seven-segment codes.
- E2700 controller:
The final LED state is 99.
- E5600SG controller:
The final LED state is HA for version 1.5 or later, or SG for version 1.3.
- Verify post-replacement operation by checking that the Storage Node appears accurately in the Grid Management Interface and that no alarms appear.
