Preliminary Steps

Before you begin, open the Xserve; place the bottom housing on a sturdy, flat surface; and remove the following:

  • Both power supplies
  • PCI riser cards and any expansion cards in both slots
  • FB-DIMM memory (remove only if you are installing a replacement logic board)
  • Airflow duct
  • Fan array
  • Backplane-to-logic board I/O cable
  • Both processor heat sinks
  • Both processors (remove only if you are installing a replacement logic board)
  • Video mezzanine card (remove only if you are installing a replacement logic board)

Note: The replacement logic board does not include the processors, video mezzanine board, memory DIMMs, PCI riser cards, or expansion cards. You must transfer these modules from the original board to the new one.

Caution: Be careful not to flex the logic board or handle it by its components or heat sinks, which could damage the board or its components. To minimize flexing, always grasp the logic board only by its thumbscrews or edges when removing or installing it.
