    Installing a C3000 or C5000 Hard Disk

    C3000 and C5000 Controllers have four hard disk arrays located in two bays on the front of the chassis. The hard disk is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field replaceable unit (FRU): You can remove and replace it without powering off the controller or disrupting controller functions.

    To replace a hard disk on a C3000 or C5000 Controller (see Figure 1):

    1. Slide the hard disk into the bay.
    2. Push the ejector lever so that the latch closes and the hard disk secures firmly in place.
    3. Using a flat screwdriver, turn the screw to the locked position so that the notch in the screw is oriented vertically.
    4. From the CLI, enable the disk. The hard disks are numbered 0 through 3.
      user@host> request disk enable device device-number
    5. Verify that the disk is initialized.
      user@host> show disk status
