Reseating drive enclosure I/O module on eva 6100

Our eva6100 has reported one loop connection lost on drive enclosure 8.Thus all the disks on that enclosure are using only one loop(loop B) now. The status of the loop A i/o module still show Green(GOOD) when viewed in the command view.
Hp has view the logs and advised that we re-seat the I/O module A on the fly.

Will this has any distruptive effect?Has any one done this before? please advise. What do we need to take note.

I notice I/O module is not CSR as well. Has any one got documentation on replacing the I/O.?

Hi!

>Will this has any distruptive effect?
No, until loop B is online.

>Has any one done this before?
I did. Not really scary, just should be careful and check everything twice before do something.

>Has any one got documentation on replacing the I/O.?
AFAIK it cannot be field-replaced, so there won't be any open documentation about it.

Hi

The IO module can be replaced online, thus you can pull and reseat it as long as the other loop is operational.
I am attaching 2 pages out of the HP internal service manual for your reference.

The IO module is a field replacable part but it is not CSR (Customer Self Repairable). It has to be replaced by HP or a certified HP service partner.

Following the spare part nubers for the later models

IO module A for M5314, M5314A, M5314B enclosures
70-40616-S4 or 70-40616-T4

IO module A for M5314C enclosures
70-40616-T5

IO module B for M5314, M5314A, M5314B enclosures
70-40615-T4 or 70-40615-T4

IO module B for M5314C enclosures
70-40615-T5
