Replacing a 4-bay storage enclosure

Use these instructions to replace a 4-bay storage enclosure in the Flex System Enterprise Chassis. You can replace a storage enclosure while the chassis is powered on.

Use this procedure to replace a 4-bay storage enclosure with the same type of storage enclosure in the same node bays. If you are installing a new storage enclosure, see Installing a 4-bay storage enclosure for more information.

Follow the detailed instructions that come with the 4-bay storage enclosure to install, cable, and configure the replacement storage enclosure.
Storage node documentation is available from the Flex System v7000 storage node information page.
After you replace the storage enclosure, complete the following steps:
  1. Make a note of the storage enclosure identification information on the labels that come with the Flex System Enterprise Chassis. Place a label on the enclosure label tab and on the adjacent chassis label plate, to the left of the storage enclosure. See User labels for more information.
    Do not place the label on the storage enclosure or in any way block the ventilation holes on the chassis.
