I need to move a Bl460c Gen9 Server Blade with its partnered D2220sb Storage Blade (with RHEL OS and Apps already installed) from slots/bays 1 and 2 from the lab C7000 chassis to ANOTHER C7000 chassis located in the live network into different slots/bays 13 and 14.
Assuming this can be done without any issues, what would be the correct procedure/order for shutting down and moving the blades to ensure that the existing configuration is not lost or corrupted:
Perform a graceful shutdown of the OS and poweroff of the blade server. (At this stage the Onboard Administrator shows the BL460c server blade as OFF (amber), but the D2220sb Storage Blade is still ON (green). Is there a way to poweroff the D2220sb?
Physically remove the D2220sb storage blade from bay 2 in the existing c7000 chassis
Physically remove the BL460c Gen9 server blade from bay 1 in the existing c7000 chassis
Physically install the D2220sb storage blade into bay 14 in the new c7000 chassis
- Physically install the BL460c Gen9 server blade into bay 13 in the new c7000 chassis
- The BL460c and D2220sb blades will be partnered and up and running.
