Replacing a Disk

Replacing a Disk

This section describes how to replace a disk.

Impact on the System

During the replacement of a disk module, if system reconstruction is complete, host services are not affected; if the system reconstruction is not complete, host services are slightly affected.


  • The spare part of the disk module is ready.
  • To prevent services from being affected, use Huawei-certified disk modules that match the product model as spare disk modules (which are obtained by service engineers based on the part numbers of failed disk modules).
  • If the SVP has running services, make sure that the data on the disk to be removed has been backed up and the RAID configuration has been deleted from the disk.
  • You have located the position of the disk to be replaced in the SVP.
  • You have obtained the rack number and chassis number of the SVP.
  • You have located the SVP based on the preceding information, and labeled its panel to prevent misoperations.

Tools and Materials

  • ESD gloves or ESD wrist strap
  • Packaging materials, for example, an ESD bag
  • Labels


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap.
  2. Push the spring that fastens the disk ejector lever. See step (1) in Figure 6-217.

    The ejector lever automatically ejects.

  3. Hold the ejector lever, and pull out the disk for about 3 cm (1.18 in.). See step (2) in Figure 6-217. Wait for at least 30 seconds until the disk stops spinning. Then remove the disk from the SVP. See step (3) in Figure 6-217.
  4. Place the removed disk in an ESD bag.
  5. Take the spare disk out of the ESD bag.
  6. Fully raise the ejector lever and push the disk module into the chassis along the guide rails until it is not movable. See step (1) in Figure 6-218.

  7. Ensure that the ejector lever is fastened to the chassis beam, and lower the ejector lever to completely insert the disk module into the chassis. See step (2) in Figure 6-218.
  8. Wait about two minutes and check the status of the Running and Alarm/Location indicators on the disk module to determine whether the disk module is successfully installed. Figure 6-219 shows the locations of the Running and Alarm/Location indicators.

    • If the Running indicator is steady on and the Alarm/Location indicator is off, the disk module is successfully installed.
    • If the Running indicator is off or the Alarm/Location indicator is steady on, the newly installed disk module is faulty, the disk module slot is faulty, or the disk module is incorrectly installed.

Follow-up Procedure

After the disk module is replaced, label it to facilitate subsequent operations.
