This article outlines how to replace drives on the C-192T, C-432T, and K-432T platforms.

PREREQUISITES

Before you begin, see C-72T, C-168T, C-192T, C-432T, and K-432T Drive Diagrams for more information about locating the drive that you want to replace.

PROCESS

HDD Drive Drawer                

  1. To expose the HDDs, press the drawer latch on the front of the node and pull on the drive drawer handle.

  2. Insert replacement drives into the drawer, connector side first.
    Important:
    • When the drive drawer is full, it is very heavy. Adding extra weight (for example, leaning or resting tools on the drawer) can cause the rails to deform.
    • To avoid scraping drives because of low clearance between the drawers, pull out one drive drawer at a time and don't apply vertical force to the drawer.
    • If the drive drawer feels stuck, don't use force. Instead, correct the level of the drawer to allow it to pass over the drives underneath.
  3. Confirm that all HDDs are seated firmly in the drive drawer.
  4. Push the drive drawer until its latch clicks.
