Procedure to power down, move and power up HP BL460c and D2220sb blades to new c7000 chassis

I need to move a Bl460c Gen9 Server Blade with its partnered D2220sb Storage Blade from slots/bays 1 and 2 from the lab C7000 chassis to another C7000 chassis located in the live network into slots/bays 13 and 14.

Assuming this can be done without any issues, what would be the correct procedure/order for shutting down and moving the blades:

  1. Perform a graceful shutdown of the OS and poweroff of the blade server. (At this stage the Onboard Administrator shows the BL460c server blade as OFF (amber), but the D2220sb Storage Blade is still ON (green). Is there a way to poweroff the D2220sb?
  2. Physically remove the D2220sb storage blade from the existing c7000 chassis
  3. Physically remove the BL460c Gen9 server blade from the existing c7000 chassis
  4. Physically install the D2220sb storage blade into the new c7000 chassis
  5. Physically install the BL460c Gen9 server blade into the new c7000 chassis
  6. The BL460c and D2220sb blades will be partnered and up and running.

The storage blade can simply be disengaged from the chassis once the partner blade has been powered down.  There is no means to place it into standby mode.

 

The rest looks all right to me.

Bob, Thanks for your answer and I can now confirm that the precedure has been executed and worked without issue.
