Install a Storage Drive

  1. Remove the replacement drive from its packaging, and place the drive on an antistatic mat.
  2. If necessary, remove the drive filler panel. See Remove and Install Filler Panels.
  3. Align the replacement drive with the drive slot.

    The drive is physically addressed according to the slot in which it is installed. It is important to install a replacement drive in the same slot as the drive that was removed.

  4. Slide the drive into the slot until the drive is fully seated.

  5. Close the drive latch to lock the drive in place.
  6. Perform administrative procedures to reconfigure the drive.

    The procedures that you perform at this point depend on how you configured your data. You might need to partition the drive, create file systems, load data from backups, or have the drive updated from a RAID configuration.
