Install the compute node cover

Use this information to install the compute node cover.

To avoid possible danger, read and follow the following safety information.

shock hazard
Hazardous voltage, current, and energy levels might be present. Only a qualified service technician is authorized to remove the covers where the label is attached.
shock hazard
Hazardous energy is present when the blade is connected to the power source. Always replace the blade cover before installing the blade.
240VA shock hazard

Hazardous energy present. Voltages with hazardous energy might cause heating when shorted with metal, which might result in spattered metal, burns, or both.

Before you install the compute node cover, complete the following steps:
  1. Read Installation Guidelines to ensure that you work safely.

  2. If you are replacing the cover, make sure that you have the system service label kit on hand for use during the replacement procedure (see Parts list for more information).

You cannot insert the compute node into the Flex System chassis until the cover is installed and closed. Do not attempt to override this protection.

To install the compute node cover, complete the following steps:

  1. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.
  2. Orient the compute node cover so that the posts on the inside of the cover slide into the slots on the compute node.
    Before you close the compute node cover, make sure that the air baffle and all components are installed and seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the compute node. Retention clips that secure the I/O expansion adapters must be in the closed position to install the compute node cover.
  3. Hold the front of the compute node and slide the compute node cover forward to the closed position, until it clicks into place.
