Complete the parts replacement

Go through this checklist before completing parts replacement.

To complete parts replacement, go through the following list:
  1. Ensure that all the removed components have been properly reinstalled 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. Make sure to install one of the following:
    • With two installed processors: system air baffle.
    • With four installed processors:
      • Processor and memory expansion tray
      • Expansion tray air baffle and upper expansion tray air baffle
        Figure 1. Installing the air baffle to the system board

        Figure 2. Installing air baffle to the expansion tray

    Air baffle is required for airflow that creates proper cooling. Make sure to install proper air baffles for system configuration before the power is turned on.
  4. If the top cover has been removed, reinstall it. See Install the top cover.

  5. Reconnect external cables and power cords to the server.
    To avoid component damage, connect the power cords last.
  6. 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.
