Install the front operator panel
The front operator panel is in the lower compute tray that is accessed from the front of the server. Insert the front operator panel in the front of the lower compute tray and press the panel in until it locks in place; then, connect the operator panel cable.
Complete the following steps to install the front operator panel.
- Insert the front operator panel into the front of the lower compute tray.NoteThe operator panel connector housing with the side retaining clips remains attached to the operator panel. The operator panel cable slides into this housing.
- Connect the operator panel cable to the front operator panel. Make sure the operator panel cable is folded beneath the connector, as shown in Cable routing for common components to prevent the cable from pinching when the compute tray is fully assembled.
- Press the front operator panel in until the locking tabs engage.
- If you are replacing the operator panel cable, route the front operator panel cable to its connector on the lower system board and connect it. See Cable routing for common components.
After you have installed the front operator panel:
Make sure that all cables are correctly routed. See Cable routing for common components and Cable routing for drives.
