The information in this document is subject to change without notice.

Illustrations in this document show generic representations of modules
and enclosures; procedures are the same for all modules shipped
with this document.
The Storage Management Utility (SMU) and the Command Line Inter-
face (CLI) can be used to manage the enclosure. Tasks in this docu-
ment demonstrate using the SMU.
For the latest product documentation, see the HP website at Under the storage banner, navigate
to the page for your storage enclosure.
Observe the following:
Removing a module from an operational enclosure significantly
changes air flow within the enclosure. Openings must be
populated for the enclosure to cool properly. Leave modules
in the enclosure until a replacement is available.
Parts can be damaged by electrostatic discharge; use proper
anti-static protection. Keep parts in electrostatic containers
until needed and ensure you are properly grounded when
touching static-sensitive components.
When replacing both controllers in an operational enclosure,
do as follows:
Replace one controller as detailed in these instructions.
Wait 30 minutes. This pause ensures that the two controllers
and their ownership of the vdisks have enough time to fully
Examine system status and event logs to ensure that the system
is stable.
Replace the other controller as detailed in these instructions.
When two controllers are installed in an enclosure, they must
be the same model. Mixing controller types in the same
enclosure is not supported.
To reduce impact on system performance, perform all
maintenance tasks during periods of low system activity or
during a system maintenance window.
