Removing a Hard Disk

Removing a Hard Disk

Remove a hard disk before replacing it with a new one.

You do not need to power off the 5288 V3 before removing a hard disk. If services are running on the 5288 V3, you have backed up the data stored on the hard disk to be removed.

Before removing a hard disk, determine its location to prevent misoperations. Otherwise, the RAID array will fail.


If a hard disk is frequently removed and installed in an interval shorter than 30 seconds, there are risks that the hard disk cannot be identified.

Figure 7-7, Figure 7-9, or Figure 7-8 shows the silkscreens of the hard disks on the 5288 V3.

Table 7-1 shows the mapping between the silkscreens of the hard disks and slot IDs in the System Event Log.

  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap. For details, see Safety Instructions.
  2. Determine the rack number and chassis number of the server to be removed, and label its panel to prevent misoperations.
  3. If a front hard disk needs to be removed and the server is equipped with a front bezel, remove the bezel. For details, see (Optional) Removing the Front Bezel.
  4. Determine the position of the hard disk (for example, a front hard disk) on the 5288 V3. See Figure 7-10.

  5. Push the ejector release button on the hard disk. See step (1) in Figure 7-11.

    The ejector lever automatically ejects.

  6. Hold the ejector lever, and pull out the hard disk for about 3 cm (1.18 in.). See step (2) in Figure 7-11. Wait for at least 30 seconds until the hard disk stops working. Then remove the hard disk from the 5288 V3. See step (3) in Figure 7-11.
  7. Place the removed hard disk in an ESD bag.
  8. (Optional) If you do not install a new hard disk immediately, install a filler panel in the slot.
