Removing and replacing blade server components

Use this information to remove and replace components of the PS703 or PS704 blade server that are replaceable.

Replaceable components are of three types:
  • Tier 1 customer replaceable unit (CRU): Replacement of tier 1 CRUs is your responsibility. If IBM® installs a tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.
  • Tier 2 customer replaceable unit: You may install a tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service that is designated for your blade server.
  • Field replaceable unit (FRU): FRUs must be installed only by trained service technicians.

See Parts listing, type 7891 to determine whether a part is a tier 1 CRU, tier 2 CRU, or FRU component.

For information about the terms of the warranty and getting service and assistance, see the Warranty and Support Information document.
