Install the Service Baffle

You might need to remove a storage controller from the storage system for repairs.

About this task

Install the service baffle into the open slot within 3 minutes of removing the storage controller from the storage system chassis.
  • NOTE: The service baffle is included with your shipment.


  1. Place one hand inside the bottom of the baffle.
  2. Pull the top flap toward you to unfold the baffle. The baffle looks like a box with an opening on each side and a flap on the top front.
  3. Hold the flap of the baffle and slide it into the storage controller slot up to the dotted line.
  4. Leave the baffle in place until you are ready to replace it with a storage controller.
