Removing and replacing blade server components

Use this information to remove and replace components in the blade server.

For information about the IBM WebSphere DataPower Integration Blade XI50B appliance, see the Installation and User's Guide that came with the blade appliance.

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 that is designated for your server.
  • Field replaceable unit (FRU): FRUs must be installed only by trained service technicians.

See Parts listing to determine whether a component is a Tier 1 CRU, Tier 2 CRU, or FRU.

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