Description
This Article describes how to swap a hard disk on FortiAnalyzer.

If a hard disk on a FortiAnalyzer unit fails, it must be replaced. On FortiAnalyzer devices that support hardware RAID, the hard disk can be replaced while the unit is still running -- a process known as hot swapping. On FortiAnalyzer units with software RAID, the device must be shutdown prior to exchanging the hard disk.

Solution
How to swap a hard disk on FortiAnalyzer devices that support hardware RAID (hot-swapping):
  1. Identify the failed hard disk.
  2. Press the tab on the handle of the failed disk.
  3. Pull the handle out. The handle will swing away from the unit.
  4. Pull out the disk from the FortiAnalyzer unit.
  5. Turn the tray over.
  6. Remove the screws on the bottom of the tray using the Phillips screwdriver.
  7. Hold both the tray and the hard disk, and turn the tray over.
  8. Lift the failed disk from the tray.
  9. Insert the new hard disk in the tray and replace the screws.
  10. The FortiAnalyzer unit automatically adds the new disk to the current RAID array.
