Replacing a storage drive may require a restart of the Teradata Database . If there is a firmware mismatch between the new storage drive and the currently installed drives, Teradata highly recommends that the firmware be updated to the same level as the currently installed drives. Updating the firmware requires a restart of the database. Before starting this procedure, the customer must communicate to the CSR that replacing a storage drive may require a database restart and, if necessary, coordinate with the CSR to find a convenient time for performing the firmware update.
Observe all servicing cautions and warnings.
