Replace a server with an assigned server profile

Symptom

Server Hardware failure

Cause

Server hardware failed and must be replaced.

Action
  1. Gracefully shut down the server hardware.
  2. Remove the original server and install the replacement server.
  3. If the server hardware type of the replacement server matches the server hardware type of the original server then:
    1. If the Affinity defined in the profile is set to Device bay, the server profile will be automatically re-assigned to the new server. Proceed to step 5.

    2. If the Affinity is set to Device bay + server hardware, the server profile must be edited and re-saved to allow the appliance to reconfigure the profile for the new server. No changes to the server profile are required. Proceed to step 5.

  4. If the server hardware type of the replacement server does not match the server hardware type of the original server a new profile must be created that matches the server hardware type of the replacement server. The original profile assigned to the server must be unassigned or deleted and the new profile assigned to the replacement server. Or, the server hardware type must be updated to match the inserted hardware.
  5. If the iLO firmware version is greater than or equal to the minimum required firmware version, proceed to Step 6. The minimum iLO firmware version is available in the HPE OneView Support Matrix. If the replacement server has an iLO firmware version less than the minimum required firmware version, an alert on the Server Hardware screen is displayed and the server status is Unmanaged/Unsupported Firmware.
    1. Select Actions > Update iLO firmware.

    2. Click OK.

  6. If the iLO firmware version is different from the baseline and the server profile is assigned to a Gen8 server or later, the iLO server firmware can be updated automatically with the re-assignment of the server profile.
    1. From the main menu, select Server Profiles, and then select the server profile to edit.

    2. Select Actions > Edit. If needed, select the proper server hardware.

    3. To manage the firmware update manually, from the Firmware baseline list, select managed manually.

    4. To automatically update the firmware, select the appropriate firmware baseline. To force install the firmware, select Force installation.

    5. Click OK.

    If the firmware version is different from the baseline and the server profile is assigned to a G7 server, you must update the firmware outside of the appliance.
