    Caution  -  The latch is not an ejector. Do not open the latch too far to the right. Doing so can damage the latch.

  5. Grasp the latch and pull the drive out of the drive slot [2].
  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.
