Checking Indicators

Checking Indicators

Indicators reflect the hardware working status in real time. By observing these indicators, you can quickly assess whether the hardware is working properly.

Check Method

By observing the indicators, maintenance personnel can understand the system health status and locate faulty modules.

Check the front-panel and rear-panel indicators on the controller enclosure on site according to the check criteria to determine whether all components in the controller enclosure are working properly.

If a module of the storage system is abnormal, refer to the Product Description of the corresponding product model to learn about detailed indicator meanings. Then, troubleshoot faults based on the detailed fault information you have obtained.

Checking Indicators on Controller Enclosures

After a controller enclosure is powered on, you can check the current operating status of the controller enclosure by viewing its indicators.
