Opening the Server
The server slides open from the front of the rack. The top cover remains in place in the
rack while the bottom housing (containing all internal components) should be placed on a
sturdy, ﬂat surface.
1. Alert users that the server will be unavailable for a period of time.
2. Shut down the server.
Warning: To avoid damaging internal components or causing injury, always
shut down the server before opening it. After you shut down the server, internal
components can be very hot. Let the server cool down before continuing.
3. Write down the server’s serial number, which is located on the back panel. If it is
necessary to set up the server’s software after you replace the optical drive, you will
be asked for the serial number at login.
