Unit does not power up
If the server fails to power on or is unresponsive, clearing the CMOS may help. It will also restore the BIOS to factory defaults. Ensure this procedure is done in a static safe environment. A grounding strap is recommended.
- Unplug the server completely from power and all peripherals
- Loosen the captive thumbscrew on the back near the power supply
- Slide the top panel towards the back of the server and lift it off
- Locate the clear CMOS solder pads
- Using a flathead screwdriver or similar conductive tool, short the two pins together for 30 seconds
- Slide the lid back on, reconnect the server, and power it on
- It may reboot several times to re-detect hardware
- If it continues to malfunction, contact technical support.
- Open the unit and inspect the cables going to the 2.5″ SSDs.
- If either SSD fails inspection, remove the orange Kapton tape and re-insert the connector. Re-apply the tape.
Servicing the fiber card
- Remove the 4x port protectors if installed
- Remove the Phillips P2 screw holding the card in place
- Rotate the retention bracket 90 degrees clockwise
If the card seems to be stuck in place, use a pair of pliers or similar object to slightly pry up on the bracket as shown.
