  2. Remove the front air baffle from the compute node.
    1. Slightly push the right and left release latches.
    2. Lift the front air baffle out of the compute node.
    For proper cooling and airflow, replace the front air baffle before you turn on the compute node. Operating the node without the front air baffle might damage node components.
