Caution - In Oracle Engineered Systems, storage drive 7 (HDD7) on eight-drive systems might be populated with a remote battery module for the host bus adapter (HBA). The battery module is not a customer-replaceable unit (CRU) and should not be removed or replaced by customers. The battery module should be removed or replaced only by Oracle field service personnel. For more information, refer to Battery Module.
Note - The blue OK to Remove LED on the storage drive might not light, as support for this varies depending on the operating system in use.
Exact commands required depend on the configuration of your drives. Unmount file systems or perform RAID commands as needed.

Caution - The latch is not an ejector. Do not bend the latch too far to the right. Doing so can damage the latch.
If you are replacing the drive, continue to Install a Storage Drive.
If you are not replacing the drive, install a filler panel in the empty drive slot to maintain proper air flow and perform administrative tasks to configure the server to operate without the drive.
