Remove an NVMe Storage Drive

Perform this procedure to physically remove an NVMe storage drive from the server.

  1. Power down the server that contains the storage drive to be removed.

    See Powering Down the Server.

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

    See Remove a Storage Drive.

  3. Grasp the latch and pull the drive out of the drive slot.
  4. Consider your next steps:
    • If you are replacing the drive, continue to Install an NVMe 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.
