Replacing SSD Cache drive

Hi new user here,

I'm supporting a DL380 Gen 9 and am getting an SSD Wearout error from iLO. This server is configured with the P440 raid controller. Now I need to take down the server to replace the Raid cache battery since it's also bad, is there any special procedure to replace the SSD cache drive, or do I just swap it out?


Re: Replacing SSD Cache drive


If you have a downtime to replace the cache battery then you can safely replace the hard disk as well.

The part description will determine if the disk is a hot plug /hot swap. So you can check the part number/model number and do a quick search to determine if this can be done online.
