2. Fully open the drive release latch.
3. Remove the drive by the grabbing
the drive sides.
4. Install the new drive: lift the drive
release latch to its fully open
position
5. Hold the drive by its carrier and
insert the drive into an empty slot
6. When the drive is fully inserted as
far as it can go, rotate the drive
release latch to its fully closed
position.
7.
Push down on the latch until you
hear and feel a click

2. Fully open the control module release
latch.
3. Remove the control module by the
grabbing the sides.
4. Install the Control Module: Lift the
control module release latch to its
fully open position
5. Hold the control module by its carrier
and insert it into the slot

MicroSD Card Replacement Procedure
1. Remove the control module from the
array.
2. Remove the SD card from the control
module.
– Push the microSD card in its slot to release the
spring mechanism. The microSD card will be
partially ejected from the housing.
– Gently pull the card straight out of the slot
3. Install the replacement SD card in the
control module.
– Align the microSD card so the arrow on the card
points towards the microSD card slot in the
control module
– When correctly positioned, the notch on the card
will correspond to the slot.
– Firmly press the card into the slot until it clicks
into place
4. Insert the control module into the array.
Self-Encrypting
Disks
(SED)
Self Encrypting Disks
• To identify a self encrypting disk a lock symbol will be on the
label.
• SED drive model mixing is not supported.

SED Disks
• To determine if all disks installed are SED
– Login to the group
– Select the member
– Issue a “show” command
Self-Encrypting Disks (SEDs) States
• Unsecure – Encryption is not active on this disk. When
shipped from the factory, drives are unsecured.
• Secure/Online – Encryption is active. Disk has been unlocked.
When more than half the drives are present, they are secure
and online.
• Secure/Offline – Encryption is active. Disk is locked. When
powered off, failed, or stolen, drives are encrypted and locked
so that data is not accessible.
Self-Encrypting Disks (SED)
• Encryption keys used to secure data on the disk
• Military-grade in real time
• Dell Equallogic uses AutoSED
– Works at the array level
› Administrator should ensure all members in group are deployed with SED
– SEDs operate in an automatic fashion
– If a drive is removed from a SED array its data is immediately locked
