Re: replacing a failed hard disk in an as400e series 520



fixed

If the system is important, i'm not sure that the broken phone of the list
guiding you and then you explaining that to another person is a good idea.
I've had some close calls where people have or almost have pulled the wrong
disk (those machines have small leds to indicate which disk is being
replaced and it might lead to confusion). The replacement procedure is the
same as all other disks, the only important point is that when doing the
concurrent maintenance you have 100% confidence in which disk to pull....
The disk should work, 4326 are all the same.
Best Regards,

Roberto

The server is in burlington, NC. I am in illinois so it is difficult for my
to fix it myself, but my coworker could probably follow directions to
replace it if I could find the correct pdf.

I think it is 9405-520/ I Series Model 520 Express/ Serial# 10-DC71E

It is running v6r1m0.


On the disk it says FC-4326 and CCIN-4326, so I went ahead and ordered a
35gb disk thats IBM 4326-9406 from flagship technologies.

Thank again,

Thanks,

Michael,

It would also help to include Operating System version, disk drive
model/type/capacity, and geographic location so that others may provide
options...

Is this a 9406-520 (Power 5) or a 8203-E4A (Power 6)? Both are 520's.

One of the hard disks in our raid array failed, so now our drives are
running in unprotected mode. I called a local tech and they want like
$5000
for a hardware and software maintenance plan, which seems a big
excessive.
Do you know where I can find the documentation on how to replace it
for a
520? I have found it for different model numbers, but not for the one
we
have.
