Note - Rear storage drives are supported only in the twelve 3.5-inch storage drive and twenty-four 2.5-inch storage drive configurations. Rear storage drives are not supported in the eight 2.5-inch storage drive configuration.
The amber Service Required LED might be lit. For specific storage drive locations, see Rear Panel Components and Cable Connections.
Caution - In Oracle Engineered Systems, rear storage drive 1 might be populated with a remote battery module for the host bus adapter (HBA) card. 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.
Caution - The drive latch is not an ejector. Do not bend the latch too far to the right. Doing so can damage the latch.
Caution - Whenever you remove a storage drive, you should replace it with another storage drive or a filler panel; otherwise, the server might overheat due to improper airflow.
