  2. Disconnect power cords from both power supplies, which are located in the rear of the server.

  3. Record the location of the cables in the front of the PCIe adapters that are installed in the I/O expansion cage at the front of the server, and disconnect the cables.

  4. Disconnect the management port cable from the management port in the I/O expansion cage, if necessary.

  5. Loosen the two captive screws located on the front of the server. If necessary, use a P2 screwdriver to loosen the screws.
