  6. Consider your next steps:
    • 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 airflow and perform administrative tasks to configure the server to operate without the drive.

      For information on how to install a storage drive filler panel, see Remove and Install Filler Panels.
