Installing a Hard Disk

Installing a Hard Disk

Install a hard disk to replace the original one or add a new hard disk.

You do not need to power off the 5288 V3 before installing a hard disk.

After a failed hard drive is disconnected from the hard drive backplane, wait for 30 seconds before removing it and inserting a new one. The alarm persists after a new hard drive is installed and will be cleared after the RAID array is rebuilt. Do not frequently hot-swap a hard drive to prevent new alarms.


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap. For details, see Safety Instructions.
  2. Remove the hard disk to be replaced. For details, see Removing a Hard Disk.
  3. Take the spare hard disk out of its ESD bag.
  4. Fully raise the ejector lever and push the hard disk into the chassis along the guide rails until it does not move. See step (1) in Figure 7-12.

  5. Ensure that the ejector lever is fastened to the chassis beam, and lower the ejector lever to completely insert the hard disk into the chassis. See step (2) in Figure 7-12.

    Observe the hard disk indicators to check the hard disk operating status. For details about the indicators, see Indicators and Buttons.

  6. If a front hard disk is installed and the bezel is required, install the bezel. For details, see (Optional) Installing the Front Bezel.
  7. After verifying hard disk status, configure RAID properties based on actual service requirements. For details, see the HUAWEI V2&V3 Server RAID Controller Card User Guide.
