Method used to locate the disk slot before replacing a disk

You can locate the disk slot before replacing a disk as follows:
1. Fault location and rectification
a. The method is used before replacing a faulty disk.
b. The method is used before replacing a risky disk.
c. You may stay on the OSM for some time until timeout and logging out of the OSM. The disk slot locating expires and the disk slot requires a relocating.
2. Solution
a. Log in to the OSM of the storage system.
b. Select Devices and then the enclosure where a disk be replaced resides. Click the disk that you want to replace. In the dialog box that is displayed, click Locating hard disks.
c. A dialog box is displayed indicating that the operation is successful. Do not close the dialog box. Otherwise, the disk location indicator is turned off.
d. The slot whose indicator (alarm indicator) blinks red is where the disk to be replaced locates. Replace the disk.
The location indicator of a disk blinks red while the alarm indicator of a disk is in steady red mode.
You must differentiate the enclosure indicator and disk fault indicator. Engineers may regard the enclosure alarm indicator as the disk alarm indicator and remove the disk in slot (0,8).
After the faulty disk is replaced, return to the OSM and close the location function (close the dialog box that is displayed in step c).
