Installing the Memory Module
Preparing the Library for the Upgrade
Caution: To prevent electrostatic damage, observe proper ESD practices when
handling the robotics controller and the memory module.
To prepare the library for the upgrade:
1. Place the library off-line by pressing the Standby button on the touch screen
graphical user interface (GUI).
2. Verify that the GUI displays System Off-line.
3. On the Overview screen, verify that the gripper is empty. If there is a tape
cartridge in the gripper, perform a Move command to place the cartridge in an
available bin.
Note: For information about using the GUI, refer to the HP StorageWorks ESL9000
Series Tape Library User Guide.
4. Record the library configuration information in the following table:

5. Turn off the power switch, located below the GUI.
6. Open the back library doors.
7. Turn off the main circuit breaker switch (CB1) on the AC distribution
assembly. If two AC distribution assemblies are installed, turn off CB1 on
each assembly.
