Remove a storage interposer (lower tray)

The lower storage interposer is in the lower compute tray that is accessed from the front of the server. After removing the lower compute tray and fan cage, disconnect the RAID card from the storage interposer and lift it out of the way; then, remove the screw securing the storage interposer and remove the storage interposer from the compute tray.

disconnect all power
The power-control button on the device and the power switch on the power supply do not turn off the electrical current supplied to the device. The device also might have more than one power cord. To remove all electrical current from the device, ensure that all power cords are disconnected from the power source.
Make sure that all server power cords are disconnected from their power sources before performing this procedure.
Before you remove an lower storage interposer:
  1. Remove the front cover. See Remove the front cover.

  2. Remove the lower compute tray or extract it to the maintenance position. See Remove a compute tray.
