Ser­ver ex­ch­an­ge in Ismaning

At the be­gin­ning of the year, we were in­for­med that we would be ro­ta­ting to Is­ma­ning to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the ser­ver exchange.

Due to the high Co­ro­na ca­ses, we had to spend the first of the two weeks plan­ned for this pro­ject in Weikersheim.

Du­ring the first week, we lear­ned all about ser­vers, how they work, what com­pon­ents are part of the ser­ver room, and how to plan a ser­ver re­pla­ce­ment. At the end of the week, we gave a pre­sen­ta­ti­on about the ex­ch­an­ge pro­cess to our instructors.

On Mon­day mor­ning, we fi­nal­ly made our way to Is­ma­ning and ar­ri­ved the­re for lunch.

Af­ter that, we went to see the new ser­vers and star­ted pre­pa­ring the tools and ca­bles we nee­ded to re­mo­ve and in­stall the new servers.

The next day, the of­fi­ci­al re­m­oval of the old ser­vers be­gan. The ser­vers were first put into main­ten­an­ce mode to per­form ser­ver un­wiring. The ca­bles that were no lon­ger nee­ded were re­mo­ved, the ser­vers were dis­as­sem­bled, and fi­nal­ly the rails were re­mo­ved from the rack.

This pro­cess was car­ri­ed out for each ser­ver ac­cor­ding to the plan­ned se­quence. Af­ter that, the new ser­vers could be in­stal­led, wired and put into operation.

Me­an­while, do­cu­men­ta­ti­on was crea­ted using Con­fluence and the exis­ting do­cu­men­ta­ti­on was updated.

I found the pro­ject chal­len­ging and very in­s­truc­ti­ve. Espe­ci­al­ly th­rough the com­pe­tent sup­port of our trai­ner, we were able to learn a lot and had a gre­at in­sight into the ac­ti­vi­ties of a sys­tem integrator.
