Complete the parts replacement

Go through the checklist to complete parts replacement

To complete the parts replacement, do the following:
  1. Ensure that all components have been reassembled correctly and that no tools or loose screws are left inside your server.

  2. Properly route and secure the cables in the server. Refer to the cable connecting and routing information for each component.

  3. Reinstall the air baffle. See Install the air baffle.
    • For proper cooling and airflow, reinstall the air baffle before you turn on the compute node. Operating the compute node without the air baffle installed might damage compute node components.

    • To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the compute node without an M.2 backplane assembly or an M.2 backplane assembly filler installed on the air baffle.

  4. Reinstall the compute node cover. See Install the compute node cover.

  5. Reinstall the compute node back to the chassis. See Install the compute node in chassis.

  6. Power on the compute node. See Power on the compute node.

  7. Update the server configuration.

    • Download and install the latest device drivers: Lenovo Data Center Support.

    • Update the system firmware. See Firmware updates.

    • Update the UEFI configuration.

    • Reconfigure the disk arrays if you have installed or removed a hot-swap drive or a RAID adapter. See the Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager User Guide, which is available for download at: Lenovo Data Center Support.
