Installing disk drives and blanks into a half-capacity storage shelf

The Primary Storage Shelf and the Expansion Storage Shelf use 4-TB or 8-TB disk drives. You cannot mix the two disk storage capacities in one shelf. You can have different capacities in separate shelves.

This section provides instructions for installing disk drives into a storage shelf that has one half of the total usable storage capacity. Blank carriers are installed into the slots that are not filled with disks. Detailed maps of the slots are provided for the blanks and the disks.

Fill the bottom drawer with disks and blanks. Then install disks and blanks into the top drawer.

To install disk drives and blanks into the bottom drawer of the storage shelf

  1. Examine the two anti-tamper locks on the front of each drawer.

    The red arrows in the locks point to the center of the drawer if the locks are not engaged.

  2. If the locks are engaged, use a Torx T20 screwdriver to rotate the locks counterclockwise.
  3. Pull the bottom drawer forward as far as possible without damaging the hardware.

    Caution:

    To provide sufficient airflow for storage shelf cooling, install blank carriers in the empty drive slots of a half-populated drawer.

  4. Note the numbered slots in each of the three rows. Blank disk carriers are shown in gray. Slots with the carriers that include disk drives are shown in white.
  5. Identify the release latch in the middle of the top of a blank carrier.
    Push the release latch to the right. A yellow line appears to the left of the latch when the disk is unlocked.
  6. Start at the front row of the bottom drawer.
  7. Locate slot 42 at the front left corner of the drawer.
  8. Insert one disk drive into slot 42 and into each slot in the first row.
  9. Insert the carrier into the slot and push it down until it stops.
  10. Place one thumb on each of the two pads that are shown by the red arrows.
  11. Push the carrier forward towards the rear of the slot, in the direction of the circled end of the carrier. The latch clicks into place.

    The yellow line is no longer visible.

  12. Press all carriers down into the slots and lock them forward.
  13. Insert one disk drive into slot 56 and into all slots in the second row.
  14. Press all carriers down into the slots and lock them forward.
  15. Insert one disk drive into slot 70.
  16. Insert blank carriers into slots 71 to 83.
  17. Press all carriers down into the slots and lock them forward.
  18. Verify that all carriers in the three rows are seated down in the slots. A carrier that is not inserted correctly may hinder securing the drawer.
  19. If you need to remove a disk drive, slide the release latch to the right. The disk pops up.
  20. Slide the drawer carefully into the shelf.
  21. Engage the anti-tamper locks as needed.

To install disk drives and blanks into the top drawer of the storage shelf

  1. Pull the top drawer forward as far as possible without damaging the hardware.
  2. Install disk drive carriers into slots 0 to 13.
  3. Install disk drive carriers into slots 14 and 28.
  4. Insert the carrier into one slot and push it down until it stops.
  5. Place one thumb on each of the two pads that are shown by the red arrows.
  6. Push the carrier forward towards the rear of the slot, in the direction of the circled end of the carrier.

    The release latch clicks into place.

  7. Locate slot 15 on the left side of the second row. Slot 15 is to the right of slot 14. Install blanks into slots 15 through 27.
  8. Locate slot 29, to the right of slot 28.
  9. Install blanks into slots 29 to 41.
  10. If you need to remove a blank, slide the release latch to the right. The blank pops up.
  11. Verify that all slots are filled.
  12. Push the drawer into the shelf.
  13. Engage the anti-tamper locks as needed.
