Hard Disk Drives

Each hard disk drive (HDD) carrier has two LEDs:

  • Green LED: Indicates drive activity, when illuminated.
  • Red LED:
    • When blinking, the drive is rebuilding.
    • When solid, indicates drive failure (you should also receive an automatic message from your system management software).

To release a hard disk drive carrier, in order to remove the hot-swappable hard disk drive, push the red button for the carrier to release the lever, then pull the carrier out, using the lever.
