Replacing the cover

Use this information to replace the cover.

Make sure that all cables, adapters, and other server components are installed and seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the server. Also, make sure that all internal cables are correctly routed.
Before you slide the cover forward, make sure that all the tabs on the front, rear, and side 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.

To replace the server cover, complete the following steps.

  1. Position the cover on top of the server.
  2. Slide the cover toward the front of the server.

  3. Make sure that the cover correctly engages all the inset tabs on the server.
  4. Slide the server all the way into the rack until the server locks into place with an audible click.
  5. Reconnect the power cords and all external cables, and turn on the server and peripheral devices.
  6. Check the Server controls, LEDs, and power.
