Remove an HDD or SSD Storage Drive

  1. Prepare the system for the drive removal.

    See Take Antistatic Measures.

  2. Identify the location of the drive that you want to remove.

    For storage drive locations, see Storage Drive Locations and Numbering.

  3. If you are removing a HDD or SSD storage drive, type the operating system commands required to stop the server from using the drive; otherwise, proceed to the next step.

    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.

    The exact commands required depend on the configuration of your drives. Unmount file systems or issue RAID commands as needed.

  4. On the drive you plan to remove, push the latch release button to open the drive latch.
