Install a Hard Drive (Hot-Plug)

Installing a hard drive into the server is a two-step process. You must first install a hard drive into the desired drive slot. Then you must configure that drive to the server.

Perform the following process to install a hard drive.

  1. If necessary, remove the blank panel from the chassis.

    Note - The server might have up to three blank panels covering unoccupied drive slots.

  2. Align the replacement drive to the drive slot.

    Hard drives are physically addressed according to the slot in which they are installed. If you removed an existing hard drive from a slot in the server, you must install the replacement drive in the same slot as the drive that was removed.

  3. Slide the drive into the drive slot until it is fully seated.
    Figure showing how to install a hard drive.
  4. Close the latch to lock the drive in place.
  5. At the Solaris prompt, type the cfgadm -al command to list all drives in the device tree, including any drives that are not configured. Type:
    # cfgadm -al

    This command should help you identify the Ap_id for the hard drive you installed. For an output example refer to Sample Ap_id Output.

  6. Type the cfgadm -c configure command to configure the disk.

    For example, type:

    # cfgadm -c configure c0::sd1

    where c0::sd1 is the disk that you are trying to configure.

  7. Wait until the blue Ready-to-Remove LED is no longer lit on the drive that you installed.
  8. At the Solaris prompt, type the cfgadm -al command to list all drives in the device tree, including any drives that are not configured. Type:
    # cfgadm -al

    This command should identify the Ap_id for the hard drive that you installed. The drive you installed should be is configured.

  9. Type the iostat -E command. Type:
    # iostat -E

    The iostat -E command displays information about your system’s installed devices such as manufacturer, model number, serial number, size, and system error statistics.
