FRU Replacements

NVIDIA NVLink SGXLS10 Switch Systems User Manual

On This Page

The NVLink switch systems are equipped with two replaceable power supply units work in a redundant configuration. Either unit may be extracted without bringing down the system.

Important

Make sure that the power supply unit that you are NOT replacing is showing all green, for both the power supply unit and the rear System Status LEDs.

Important

Power supply units have directional air flows similar to the fan module. The fan module airflow must coincide with the airflow of all of the power supply units. If the power supply unit airflow direction is different from the fan module airflow direction, the system’s internal temperature will be affected. For power supply unit air flow direction, refer to Air Flow.

To extract a power supply unit:

  1. Remove the power cord from the power supply unit.

  2. Grasping the handle with your hand, push the latch release with your thumb while pulling the handle outward. As the power supply unit unseats, the power supply unit status LEDs will turn off.

  3. Remove the power supply unit.

To insert a power supply unit:

  1. Make sure the mating connector of the new unit is free of any dirt and/or obstacles.

    Important

    Do not attempt to insert a power supply unit with a power cord connected to it.

  2. Insert the power supply unit by sliding it into the opening, until a slight resistance is felt.

  3. Continue pressing the power supply unit until it seats completely. The latch will snap into place, confirming the proper installation.

  4. Insert the power cord into the power supply connector.

  5. Insert the other end of the power cord into an outlet of the correct voltage.

    Important

    The green power supply unit indicator should light. If it does not, repeat the whole procedure to extract the power supply unit and re-insert it.

The system can fully operate if one fan FRU is dysfunctional. Failure of more than one fan is not supported.

Important

Make sure that the fans have the air flow that matches the model number. An air flow opposite to the system design will cause the system to operate at a higher (less than optimal) temperature. For power supply unit air flow direction, refer to Air Flow.

To extract a fan unit:

  1. Extract the fan by pulling the gold handle outwards. As the fan unit unseats, its status LEDs will turn off.

  2. Remove the fan unit.

To remove or replace a fan unit, gently pull out its handle while pushing the latch release with your index finger.

To insert a fan unit:

  1. Make sure the mating connector of the new unit is free of any dirt and/or obstacles.

  2. Insert the fan unit by sliding it into the opening until slight resistance is felt. Continue pressing the fan unit until it seats completely.

Important

The green Fan Status LED should light. If not, extract the fan unit and reinsert it. After two unsuccessful attempts to install the fan unit, power off the system before attempting any system debug.
