EVA5000 - replace fibre channel loop switch

We've had a fibre channel loop switch fail in one of our older EVA's. We are planning to source a replacement part but has anyone actually done this - I can find no instructions on how to remove the fail part and what steps to take etc.

 

Thanks for any info

Hi

It's a simple operation if your failed switch is not working you just have to take out the old switch reconnect power cables and connect the fiber cables there is no configuration and all fiber ports are identical so it dosn't matter the actual ports you connect to.

Do you have to shutdown the eva first, or can you do it online?

Also - possibly a daft question, but how do you actually get the thing out? I've had a look...and a wiggle but can't see what is holding it in.

many thanks

It can be daone online, because you have a second path to the disks. Disconnect all cables and pull the switch from the front.

Hope this helps!
