Replacing a Hard Disk or Solid State Drive
The PA-5000 Series firewall has a bay that contains two 2.5-inch Serial Advanced Technology
Attachment (SATA) hard disk drives or solid state drives (SSD). You must power down the firewall to
replace either of the drives.
To replace a drive:
1.
Identify the failed drive using the system log. The drive LED indicates if a drive is failed, but does
not indicate which drive.
2.
Power down the firewall.
3.
Loosen the thumbnail screws for the disk drive bay using a flat or Phillips head screw driver, if
necessary.

Choosing System Options for the Drive
When the system boots, you are presented with the following options:
•
Adding blank but identical drive
This is the expected case when a drive fails and a new drive is shipped. In this case, the part
numbers of the existing and new hard drives match and the new drive is completely blank. The
system powers up normally, the new drive is added to the RAID partition without any user
interaction, and background RAID syncing starts. Until the RAID sync is completed the alarm
LED is RED, indicating that there is a single point of failure in the system. When the RAID sync
completes, the alarm becomes GREEN. This process could take up to an hour or so with non SDD
drives.
•
Adding blank but different drive
In this scenario, the new drive is blank but has a different part number. This is the expected case
when migrating from standard to SSD drives. The system will start to boot, it will determine that
the drives are different, and then it will boot into maintenance mode with the reason “Drive model
mismatch.” You are then presented with the following options:
– Add the new drive to the array, ignoring the model mismatch. This is the expected case if hard
drive models are changed. In this case the drives will be compatible, but have different model
numbers. The drive will be added to the array and you will be given an option to reboot. Upon
reboot, the system behavior will be the same as if an identical drive was replaced.
– Migrate from one drive to the other. This will format the new drive to maximum capacity, copy
all contents from the old drive to the new drive, and add the new drive to the array. After the
migration process is completed, a message is displayed to power down the system, remove the
old drive, insert the new drive (if any), and power the system back on. If you are migrating from
a larger drive to a smaller drive, you are warned that all saved logs are removed because there is
no guaranteed that they will be fully copied.
•
Adding old drive back into system
If two synced and running drives ever become unsynced, for example, because one drive was
removed for some time, the system will determine that two valid drives paired to the serial number
or the system are present and will boot into maintenance mode. In maintenance mode, you will be

required to select which drive is primary and then given the option to reboot. Upon rebooting, the
system will add the secondary drive to the primary drive’s RAID array and then the system
behavior will be the same as if an identical drive was replaced. Note that it may require one extra
automatic reboot to correctly set up the system (due to how automatic RAID selection works).
Replacing the Fan Tray and Air Filter
Note: You can replace the fan tray while the firewall is powered on; however, you
must replace it within 20 seconds, or the thermal protection circuit will
automatically shut down the firewall.
To replace the fan tray and air filter:
1.
Identify the fan failure using the system log or fan LED.
2.
Make sure the new fan tray is unpacked and ready to slide into the chassis.
3.
Loosen the thumbnail screws for the fan tray bay using a flat or Phillips head screw driver, if
necessary.

Replacing the Fan Tray and Air Filter
Replacing the Air Filter
Inspect the air filter on a periodic basis. A dirty air filter restricts airflow in the unit, reducing the
ventilation and effective cooling of the system. To maintain optimum system operation, Palo Alto
Networks recommends that you replace the filter every 6 months. Discard used filters; do not attempt to
clean and reuse them. You can purchase replacement air filters from Palo Alto Networks or an
authorized reseller.
You can replace the air filter without replacing the full fan tray. It is not necessary to power down the
firewall to replace the air filter.
To replace the air filter.
1.
Remove the fan tray metal cover, as described in “Replacing the Fan Tray and Air Filter” on
page 25.
2.
Gently lift the plastic tab and slide the air filter out.

Slide the new filter in, making sure that the plastic tab on the new filter faces out with the screw
that secures the plastic tab at the top.
