install new GPU in stat1005
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This task will track the swapping of the GPU cards inside stat1005/7DV1KH2.

A new GPU card (an AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100 100-505957 16GB 2048-bit HBM2 CrossFire Supported Video Card) was ordered on parent procurement task T217668. When it arrives, the following should occur:

  • - receive in new AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100 on T217668. This card has NO ASSET TAG as we don't have any methods for tracking individual cards within servers.
  • - sync with Analytics and take down stat1005 (should already be offline at time of this task filing) to remove the existing GPU card and install this new GPU card.
  • - sync with Analytics to ensure they have remote mgmt of server so they can reimage and test the GPU as they see fit.

Once the above is done, this task can be resolved.

So the main concern about this is if it will physically fit. Task T216226 - GPU upgrade for stat1005, has a sub-task T216528 where Chris took measurements of the inside of the chassis, and worked with Analytics team so they could determine a GPU that would fit our physical case limitations.

This ordered card should work, but there are no promises, and no returns because thats just how GPU cards are sold.

If you don't find anybody online to shutdown stat1005 please go ahead and do it, we are not running anything on it!
