Replace a storage drive tray in a single-drive system

You can remove the faulty drive from the chassis and install the blank replacement drive that you received from
F5®
Networks. You can access the storage drives after removing the fan tray from the back of the chassis.
All photos shown are examples. The appearance of your components or accessories might vary slightly.
  1. Locate the fan tray on the back of the chassis.
  2. Loosen the fan tray screws by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips screwdriver.
    The screws that hold the fan tray in place are captive and cannot be removed from the assembly.
  3. Remove the fan tray from the chassis by grasping the handles and pulling straight toward you.
  4. Remove the faulty drive by pushing the lever in the middle of the drive tray to the left.
  5. Pull the large latch straight toward you to eject the drive tray from the chassis.
  6. Slide the new drive tray into the empty drive bay until the latch engages the chassis.
  7. Push the latch inward toward the chassis until it clicks.
  8. Slide the fan tray back into the fan tray slot.
  9. Tighten the screws into place with a Phillips screwdriver.
    Use 5 inch-pounds (0.6 Newton-meters) of torque on these screws. The fan tray is connected to the system when you tighten the screws completely. Once seated, the fan tray automatically powers up and begins circulating air through the chassis.
