    Removing the Hard Drive

    The hard drive is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable unit (FRU); you can remove and replace the hard drive while the Junos Pulse Gateway is running without turning off power to the Junos Pulse Gateway.

    The SM160 uses only one hard drive. When replacing the hard drive, insert the drive in the upper slot where the service module is located. The hard drive and service module are mated together through the chassis midplane.

    The SM360 uses two drives in RAID 1 formation. The order of the drives must be preserved if you remove and replace the hard drives. For example, the upper and lower drive should stay in that order if you replace the drive.

    To remove a hard drive from the Junos Pulse Gateway chassis:

    1. To unlock the handle on the front of the hard drive assembly, push the handle release button.

      This action causes the handle to unlock and spring open.

    2. To remove the hard drive, pull the drive out of the chassis using the handle.

      Note: Do not remove the hard drive from the hard drive assembly.

    3. If you are replacing the hard drive, see Installing a Hard Drive.
    4. Place the hard drive in the antistatic bag or on the antistatic mat placed on a flat, stable surface.
