Internal cable routing
Some of the components in the server come with internal cables meant for specific connectors.
Turn off the server before you connect or disconnect any internal cables.
Refer to the documentation that comes with any external devices for additional cabling instructions.
Make use of the identifiers printed on the cables to locate the proper connectors.
Ensure that the cable is not pinched and does not cover any connectors or obstruct any components on the system board.
- Disengage all latches, release tabs, or locks on cable connectors when you disconnect cables from the system board. Failing to release them before removing the cables will damage the cable sockets on the system board, which are fragile. Any damage to the cable sockets might require replacing the system board.
When installing the front system fan into the chassis, make sure the cables do not interfere with the two posts and the fan is firmly seated.
