 To perform hardware upgrades on your active server, please note that we can offer upgrades for RAM and/or HDD depending on the server chassis capacity. If you are considering a different CPU, we can deploy the new server and run it simultaneously with your existing server so you can transfer your data. On completion, you can cancel the old server. 


Requesting hardware modification for your Dedicated or Bare Metal Server

You can easily request hardware modifications from the LeaseWeb Customer Portal.

There will be a one-time setup fee of €50.00 for the manual effort that is required by an engineer. After approval, we will schedule an appropriate date and time with you for the upgrade.

Perform the following steps to request a hardware modification for your Dedicated or Bare Metal Server:

  1. In the menu bar, under Dedicated & Bare Metal Servers, select Overview.
    The All Servers overview page displays.
  2. Click the Manage link for the server that you want to (re-)install.
    The Server Management page displays.



  3. Under Actions, click Request new hardware 

  4. The "Request new hardware" page displays.

     

    We recommend that you check the server's compatibility with the hardware your want to upgrade to by clicking the "online help" icon.



  5. Choose the amount of RAM you want to have on your server.


  6. Choose how you want to configure HDD modification on your server
    First select how many HDD you want of a certain capacity.


    The 'x' beside each number refers to the multiplier.

  7. Select the HDD capacity of each HDD drive. 
     
     

  8. Add additional notes.

    This section is to add additional notes that you want our engineers to pay attention to and take in considerate while working on your hardware modification request



  9. Click the "Send Request" button.

    LeaseWeb will immediately receive your request and a ticket will be created for you. You can track the status of the upgrade by tracking this ticket from your Customer Portal.

Compatibility matrix for hardware modification

Before requesting hardware upgrade, we recommend that you check if the upgrade is compatible with your server and if downtime is required when performing the upgrade.

Downtime

If a disk has to be replaced with a new disk - in order replace a faulty disk, or an upgrade or downgrade- a downtime is sometimes required, depending on the type of server and the OS and RAID configuration:

  1. Hotswapable disk drive slots present on the server ot not.
  2. Disk drive a member of OS/Raid

No downtime is required when:

the server supports hot-swap. Hotswap means that a disk can be replaced without turning off the server and without affecting the working of the OS.

This disk should also not be part of the OS and not be a part of crucial raid configuration which does NOT support disk drive failure tolereance.

Downtime is required when:

the server does not support hot-swap. In this case, the server needs to be turned off and the chassis needs to be opened in order to remove and replace/upgrade a disk.

- when a server does support hot-swap, but the faulty disk is part of the OS and/or RAID configuration/array that has no disk failure tolerance. This means that the disk cannot be replaced without downtime.

The HP models are categorized based on generations. These generations are marked by a G followed by the generations number. For example: G6, G7 or G9
