Revision Date Comment 1.0 09-MAR-2011 Initial Public Release
Products Affected Comments N20-B6730-1 UCS B230 M1 Blade Server N20-B6730-1-UPG UCS B230 M1 Blade Server N20-B6730-1= UCS B230 M1 Blade Server N20-B6730-1D UCS B230 M1 Blade Server
Some UCS B230 M1 Blade Servers were shipped with incorrect silkscreened labeling between the dates of December 18, 2010 and January 10, 2011. Labeling for the beacon and power button is reversed on affected units.
An error was made on the front panel artwork in the initial production set for the UCS B230 M1 blade server. The affected units have the labels for beacon and power LED/buttons reversed. An overlay label has been produced to correct the issue.
The Power LED is a green/amber color, and the Locate LED is blue. The Power LED graphic should be a circle with an inscribed Z shape. The Locate LED is a dual-lined circle with a solid dot in the center, with a solid triangle pointing downward.
When facing the front panel of an affected Cisco UCS B230 M1 Blade Server, the Power icon appears on the left and the Locate icon appears on the right. This photo shows an affected unit:
- Contact the Cisco Worldwide Technical Assistance Center and place a service RMA order for the front bezel correction label.
The Product ID for this part is: UCSB-STIC-A-B230=
RMA orders for this label will be shipped within 1 to 10 days after order placement. 2 or 4 hour RMA service is not generally available for this part.
- Remove the new label from its packaging and peel off the protective film to expose the adhesive.
- Place the overlay sticker over the Beacon and Power labels on the UCS B230 M1 Blade Server as indicated in this photo:
