SC5020 and SC5020F Storage System Owner’s Manual

SC5020 Series Storage System Drive Numbering

The storage system holds up to 30 drives, which are numbered from left to right in rows starting from 0 at the top-left drive. Drive numbers increment from left to right, and then top to bottom such that the first row of drives is numbered from 0 to 4 from left to right, and the second row of drives is numbered from 5 to 9 from left to right.

Dell Storage Manager identifies drives as XX- YY, where XX is the number of the unit ID of the storage system and YY is the drive position inside the storage system.
