Use this procedure to install a hard drive (HD).
Note - The hard drives in the Sun Server X2-8 are hot-plug components.
Caution - Airflow and temperature control–related issues. 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 slots.
An animation of the procedure to install a hard drive is available. See animation showing hard drive installation.
