About this task
Read the Installation Guidelines to ensure that you work safely.


  1. Make preparations for this task.
    1. Turn off the solution and peripheral devices and disconnect the power cords and all external cables (see Power off the compute node).
    2. If the solution is installed in a rack, remove the solution from the rack (see Remove the server/solution from the rails).
      To avoid a drop hazard, slide the enclosure out of the rack slowly and steadily. Make sure to grip the enclosure with both hands when pulling it forward on the slide rails and lifting it out of the rack. Use safe practices when lifting.
  2. Remove the SMM2 from the enclosure (see Remove the hot-swap SMM2).
  3. Remove the CMOS battery (CR2032) from the SMM2 module (see Remove the CMOS battery (CR2032) from the SMM2).
  4. Remove the SMM2 board.
    1. Remove the four screws that secure the SMM2 board to the module.
    2. Gently slide the SMM2 board backwards and then lift it out of the module.
