Identify the faulty storage drive

To physically access the storage drives, you must first remove the fan tray from the unit.
Before you remove a storage drive from your system, you should identify the faulty drive.
  1. Open the TMOS Shell (
    tmsh
    ).
    tmsh
  2. View the status of the drives.
    show sys raid
    A disk summary similar to this example displays:
    --------------------- Sys::Raid::Array: MD1 --------------------- Size (MB) 931.5K --------------------------------------------------------- Sys::Raid::ArrayMembers Bay ID Serial Number Name Array Member Array Status --------------------------------------------------------- 1 S2HSNX0HB02143 HD2 yes failed 2 S2HSNX0HB02237 HD1 yes ok ------------------------------------------------------------- Sys::Raid::Bay Bay Shelf Name Serial Number Array Member Array Status ------------------------------------------------------------- 1 1 HD2 S2HSNX0HB02143 yes failed 2 1 HD1 S2HSNX0HB02237 yes ok -------------------------------------------------------------------- Sys::Raid::Disk Name Serial Number Array Array Status Model Member -------------------------------------------------------------------- HD1 S2HSNX0HB02143 yes ok ATA SAMSUNG MZ7KM480 HD2 S2HSNX0HB02237 yes failed ATA SAMSUNG MZ7KM480
  3. Make note of the bay number and serial number for the faulty drive (the drive with the
    failed
    status).
    The serial number is printed in its entirety on the labels on top of the drive.
  4. Before you remove the drive from the system, remove the faulty drive from the array.
    The faulty drive is HD2 in this example.
    modify sys raid array MD1 remove HD2
Now you can remove the drive and replace it with the new one that you received from F5. You do not have to power down the system before you remove the drive.
