Installing a Storage Drive and Closing a Storage Drawer

  1. Insert the new drive:

    Do not cause unnecessary vertical or horizontal motion when installing a storage drive into the storage drive drawer. Too much vibration can damage drives residing in the same drawer.
    1. With the circuit board facing up, align the drive with the empty slot in the drawer.
    2. Gently slide the drive into the drive bay.
    3. With thumb and finger on the right and left front of the drive, push until the latch clicks on both sides of the drive.
    As the drive spins up, the drive's Fault LED may blink intermittently. During drive reconstruction, LEDs blink to indicate that data is being restored to the new drive. Reconstruction can potentially take a very long time.
  2. On the new storage drive, monitor the drive status LED and refer to the table below for instructions on how to proceed:
    For this condition Do the following

    Green LED (FDE or non-FDE arrays):

    • Blinks green slowly for 2 seconds
    • Turns to solid green
    • Blinks green rapidly, showing activity

    Blue LED (FDE arrays):

    • Blinks blue for approximately 6 seconds
    • Turns off or is not illuminated

    Drive status is good and reconstruction is in progress. Proceed to next step.

    For any other condition not listed in this table, including (but not limited to) the following:

    • LED shows no activity
    • LED blinks green slowly for up to 5 minutes
    • LED blinks blue (non-FDE arrays)
    • LED blinks blue continuously (FDE arrays)
    Contact Teradata Customer Support for assistance.
  3. Lift the drawer up slightly by the handle, then slowly push the storage drive drawer into the drive enclosure until it stops, keeping the drawer level by supporting it underneath.
    Extended drawer contains active, spinning drives. Do not jostle the drawer while it is extended. The drawer is heavy. Support the drawer and keep it steady while extending it to prevent damage to drives or rails.

  4. Verify that the Drawer FRU OK LED and the Drive Enclosure FRU OK LED turn solid green.
    If there are other failed drives in this drawer, the Drawer FRU OK LED will not turn solid green. If there are failed drives in this drawer or other drawers, the Drive Enclosure FRU OK LED will not turn solid green.

  5. Tighten the captive screw.
  6. Install the front panel of the drive enclosure:
    1. Place your hands on the indentations on each side of the vented area.

    2. Push the front panel onto the pins of the drive enclosure.
