Question on SD Cards for server blades

Don had a question on SD cards for blades:






I am trying to clear up some confusion a customer just brought up on the SD cards on the Gen8 and Gen9 blades. They stated the cards were non-removable, I have always thought these could be removed in the field, not easily as the server must be taken out and opened up, but they could be removed.


Is this valid?

Hi Donald,


Yes, the SD cards are removable on both models.  Here is a screen capture from the Services Media Library part removal guide:




Maybe they were confusing the NAND flash that’s part of the iLO4 which has the image for Intelligent Provisioning and other things?
