Internal Drive Bays (Disk-Array Models)

Internal Drive Bays (Disk-Array Models)

Internal drives are installed in bays . The bays are numbered 1 through 10.

Cover plates  (sometimes called bezels ) cover the front of some installed drives. If you install a drive that uses removable media (diskette, optical disc, or tape), you might need to remove or change the cover plate.

The following table shows the widths, types, and maximum heights for the drives that you can install in each bay.
