If you are replacing a server component in the server, you need to slide the server out from the rack enclosure, turn off the server and peripheral devices, and disconnect the power cords and all external cables.

To remove the bezel, complete the following steps.

    Two or more people are required to remove the server from a rack cabinet.
  2. Remove the drives and drive bay filler panels from the drive bays (see Removing a hot-swap hard disk drive, or Removing a simple-swap hard disk drive, or Removing the optional DVD drive).
