Remove the front bezel

Use this information to remove the front bezel.

About this task

Several different types of front bezel can be installed in the compute node: all are removed and installed in a similar manner. The front bezel shown in the illustrations might differ slightly from the bezel installed in your compute node.


  1. If any hot-swap drives or drive bay fillers are installed, remove them from the compute node. See the following section that matches your compute node configuration for instructions.

    When removing the hot-swap drives, make note of the drive bay from which the drive was removed so that you can install the drive back in to the same drive bay.


    Only touch and hold the EDSFF drive handle when removing EDSFF drive from the compute node. EDSFF drive may be damaged if you touch parts other than the handle before the EDSFF drive is completely removed out of the compute node.

  2. Rotate the front handle of the computer node to the open position.
  3. Install the front bezel to the compute node.
    1. Press from the underneath of front bezel’s top edge.
    2. Rotate the front bezel outward and remove it away from the compute node.
