  1. Lower the server cover onto the chassis until all tabs on both sides of the server cover engage the chassis. Then, slide the server cover toward the front of the chassis until the server cover stops and the front edge of the cover aligns with the edge of the front bezel.
    Before you slide the cover forward, ensure that all the tabs of the cover engage the chassis correctly. If all the tabs do not engage the chassis correctly, it will be very difficult to remove the cover later.
