Removing the Server from a Rack

Removing the Server from a Rack

Before you begin

To remove the server from a rack:

  1.  If you have a modem or fax machine attached to the  server, disconnect the telephone line from the  electrical outlet and the server.

    Note:  If you are in the United Kingdom, you must  perform this step before  disconnecting the power  cords.

  2.  Disconnect all cables and power cords from the rear  of the server.
  3.  Disconnect all power cords from the rack.
  4.  Remove the screws from the bezel brackets on each  side of the front bezel. Set them aside for later use.
  5.  Slide the server about halfway out of the rack.
  6.  Loosen the captive screws that secure the  cable-management arm.
  7.  Fully extend the slide-bracket assemblies until they  lock.
  8.  Remove the screws that attach the server to each  slide-bracket assembly.


     Use safe lifting practices when lifting the machine.

  9.  Install the four lift handles on the sides of the server:

    1.  Press in on the sides of the lift handle near the  tabs and insert the handle tabs into the slots on  the side of the server.
    2.  Move the handle up in the slots so that the  hooked part of each tab is inside the server.  Release the pressure on the sides of the handle.
    3.  Install the remaining three lift handles.

  10.  Lift the server from the slide bracket assemblies and  place the server on a flat, nonconductive surface.
