Removing a 3.5-inch Drive

Removing a 3.5-inch Drive


  1. Check the RAID configuration of the drive to be removed:

    • If the drive is not in a RAID array or in a RAID array without redundancy settings (such as a RAID 0 array), back up the data on the drive before removing it.
    • If the drive to be removed is in a RAID array with redundancy, you can remove the drive without backing up the data.

  2. Determine the drive to be removed. Figure 5-98 shows the locations of drives.


    Before replacing a drive, check whether an OS is installed on it. If no OS is installed on the drive, you do not need to power off the compute node before removing the drive. If an OS is installed on the drive, you need to power off the compute node before removing the drive.

  4. Open the drive ejector lever completely. See (2) in Figure 5-99.
  5. Hold the drive ejector lever, and pull out the drive for about 3 cm (1.18 in.). Wait for at least 30 seconds, and remove the drive from the slot. See (3) in Figure 5-99.
  6. Place the removed drive in an ESD bag.
  7. (Optional) Install a filler module in the drive slot if you do not want to install a drive immediately.
