Use this procedure to remove a hard drive (HD).
Note - The hard drives in the Sun Server X2-8 are hot-plug components.
Caution - If you are removing more than one HD and not replacing the drives, label each HD to indicate its slot (see Hard Drive Designation). Drives must be installed in their original slot.
An animation of the procedure to remove a hard drive is available. See animation showing power supply installation.
This action causes the handle to unlock and spring open.
Note - Do not remove the HD from the XL bracket assembly.
Caution - Airflow and temperature control–related issues. Do not leave a hard drive slot unoccupied. Hard drive slots must contain either a drive or a HD filler.
