Install a simple-swap drive
Install a hot-swap drive by sliding it into the drive bay and closing the drive bay handle.
For a list of supported drives, see Lenovo ServerProven website.
The drive bays are numbered to indicate the installation order (starting from number “0”). Follow the installation order when you install a drive.
- You can mix drives of different types and different capacities in one system, but not in one RAID array. The following order is recommended when installing the drives:
Drive type priority: SSD, SATA HDD
Drive capacity priority: the lowest capacity first
The drives in a single RAID array must be the same type, same size, and with the same capacity.
- Press the two tabs toward each other to remove the drive filler. Keep the drive filler in a safe place.Figure 1. Drive filler removal
Touch the static-protective package that contains the new drive to any unpainted surface on the outside of the server. Then, take the new drive out of the package and place it on a static-protective surface.
