  5. Insert the PCIe riser card vertically into the PCIe slot.

To Replace an HDD

Your Quiver 1UH Gen2 chassis contains 12 HDDs. For more information, see HDD Drives.

  1. Slide the tray with the HDD carriers out of the chassis.

  2. Lift up the drive carrier handle and remove the carrier with the HDD from the tray.

  3. Remove the three screws from the existing HDD.

  4. Remove the existing HDD from its carrier.

  5. Install the new HDD in the carrier.

  6. Install the three screws in the new HDD.

  7. Insert the carrier with the new HDD into the tray and lower the drive carrier handle.

  8. Slide the tray with the HDD carriers into the chassis.

To Replace an NVMe Drive

Your Quiver 1UH Gen2 chassis contains 4 NVMe drives. For more information, see NVMe Drives.

  1. To remove the existing NVMe drive, pull out the SSD bracket while pressing the blue latch.

  2. Remove the four screws from the existing NVMe drive.

  3. Remove the existing NVMe drive from the SSD bracket.

  4. Install the new NVMe drive in the SSD bracket.

  5. Install the four screws in the new NVMe drive.

  6. Insert the SSD bracket with the new NVMe drive into the chassis until the blue latch snaps into place.

To Replace a Power Supply Unit (PSU)

Your Quiver 1UH Gen2 chassis contains two PSUs.

  1. Unfasten the power cord latch and remove the power cord from the existing PSU.

  2. To remove the existing PSU, press the blue latch while pulling on the black handle.

  3. Slide the new PSU into the chassis.

  4. Fasten the power cord latch to the power cord.

To Replace a Fan Module

Your Quiver 1UH Gen2 chassis has two three-fan modules. The fans are marked L (left), M (middle), and R (right). Each module has six rubber clips on each side and latches that hold cables in place.

  1. Remove the air duct from the existing fan module.

  2. Remove the connector cable from the motherboard.

  3. Remove the rubber clips from the existing fan module and the cables from their latches.

  4. To remove the existing fan module, pull it from its cage.

  5. Slide the new fan module into its cage.

  6. Install the rubber clips in the new fan module and place cables into their latches.

  7. Plug the connector cable into the motherboard.

  8. Replace the air duct onto the new fan module.

To Replace a DIMM

Your Quiver 1UH Gen2 chassis has 12 DIMM slots, with a locking latch on each side of each DIMM.

  1. To remove an existing DIMM, press down on the latches and pull the module upwards.

  2. Match the notch on the new DIMM with the protrusion on the DIMM slot.

  3. Firmly press the DIMM into the slot until it clicks in and the latches lock.

To Replace the Node Chassis

  1. At the back of the node, disconnect the power cabling from both power supply units (PSUs) and remove both existing PSUs from the node.

  2. Disconnect the network cabling from the NIC port and remove the existing NIC from the node.

  3. Remove the existing HDDs, NVMe drives, and the NVMe M.2 boot drive from the node.

  4. Remove the existing chassis from the server rack.

  5. Install the new chassis in the server rack.

  6. Install the existing HDDs, NVMe drives, and the boot drive in the node.

  7. For the NIC, do one of the following:

    • If your replacement chassis comes with a NIC, install the new NIC in the chassis and connect the network cabling to the NIC ports.

    • If your replacement chassis doesn’t come with a NIC, install and connect the existing NIC.

  8. For the PSUs, do one of the following:

    • If your replacement chassis comes with PSUs, install the new PSUs in the chassis and connect the power cabling to the PSUs.

    • If your replacement chassis doesn’t come with PSUs, install and connect the existing PSUs.

  9. Run the File Verification Tool (FVT) on the node.
