This section provides instructions on how to remove a non-hot-swap hard disk drive. This section applies
only to server models that have non-hot-swap hard disk drives installed.
Attention: To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the server for more than 10 minutes without
either a drive or a filler panel installed in each drive bay.
To remove a non-hot-swap hard disk drive, do the following:
1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the server. Then, disconnect all
power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the server.
2. Press the blue button
Note: If you have locked the side door, you must turn off the server, disconnect all power cords, and
remove the server cover when you want to remove, install, or replace any hard disk drives. See "Locking
or unlocking the hard disk drive side door" on page 46 and "Removing the server cover" on page 43.
