Replacing a hot-plug SCSI hard disk
- Before you remove the failed hard disk, use the appropriate software and programs installed on the computer to stop all activity on the failed hard disk. Instructions for using the software are provided by the software manufacturer.
- Use the programs or look at the light-emitting diodes (LED) on the front panel to determine which hard disk needs to be replaced.
- Remove the hard disk from the drive bay by unclipping the retention lever and rotating the lever away from the front of the computer.
- Continue pulling outward until the hard disk is entirely out of the computer, holding the top edge of the carrier so that the hard disk exits the chassis smoothly.
- Remove the four screws that secure the hard disk to the carrier, and then remove the hard disk
- Install the new hard disk in the carrier using the four screws you removed in step 5.
- Align the drive rails with the slots at the sides of the drive bay. Leave the retention lever in the open position.
- Push the hard disk all of the way into the drive bay until the retention lever starts to close due to contact with the front of the chassis. Verify that the hooks on the side of the retention lever latch to the side of the drive bay and firmly close the lever.
- Run any necessary programs to inform the operating system that the new hard disk is installed and ready for use. See the program software documentation for details.
