Drives (Hot-Swap) (Netfinity EXP10 - 3520)

Drives (Hot-Swap)


To remove the hot-swap drives:
  1.  Pull on the bottom of the fray lever to release the lever.
  2.  Lift the lever and slide the drive out of the slot.
  3.  Install the new drive. Making sure at least ten seconds have  passed before you install the new drive tray. Unlatch and open the  drive lever and insert the drive.
  4.  Lock the lever in place.
  5.  Check the LEDs.

    1.  When drives are ready for use, the green Active LEDs  should be off and the Power/Fault LED should be glowing green.
    2.  If Power/Fault light is amber, remove the drive from the unit,  wait 10 seconds, then reinstall the drive.  If the SCSI adapter is the IBM ServeRaid see the ServeRaid User's  Guide for additional information and procedures on changing the  state of the drive from the current Default state to any other state  (such as HSP, RDY, and rebuild drive to ONL). The amber LED shoult  go off within 10 seconds of the drive state change to something other than DDD.

       If the SCSI adapter is the IBM ServeRaid II, the drive may automatically reset  to either a hotspare (HSP) or be rebuilt (ONL). See the ServeRaid II User's Guide  for additional information. If the state change in the ServeRaid II configuration  does not change automatically (amber LED does not go off), then refer to the  ServeRaid II User's Guide for instructions on how to perform a manual drive state change.  The amber LED should go off within 10 seconds of a drive change to something other than DDD.

The following table shows the LED status on the drives:

Active LED Green Glows intermittently during read/write or inquiry
operations to drive.
Power/Fault LED Green Glows when a drive is installed.
Power/Fault LED Amber Glows to indicate a drive failure or blinks
to indicate a drive rebuild command to the drive.
