FWIW:

We didn't have to remove the system from the rack when changing the backplane. It should come out when fully extended depending upon side access clearance. it took us about 20 minutes to do. YMMV.

Sorry can't help you on the key question.

Hey Marty!!

Your procedure looks pretty good. I caution you on firmware though. MP's and system boards are inter-dependent upon this. You may have to downgrade/upgrade as necessary.

Hope this helps!!

If possible, record the boot paths. They will be lost after changing this part.

Hope this helps!

Hi Marty199,

Your step is OK, Before remove all cable please mark accordingly.

Also take Ignite OS Backup before down the System.

Thanks
