Install the front handle

Use this information to install the front handle.

Before you install the front handle:
  1. Read Installation Guidelines and Safety to ensure that you work safely.

  2. If the compute node is installed in a chassis, remove it (see Remove a compute node for instructions).
  3. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface with the cover side down, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.

To install the front handle, complete the following steps:

Watch the procedure. A video of the process is available:

  1. Carefully place the compute node in the up-side-down orientation.
  2. Align the hole in the handle with the hole on the compute node where the handle is installed.
  3. Using a T15 Torx screwdriver, install the screw that secures the handle. Use the same screw which was removed when you removed the handle.
  4. Install the other handle in a similar manner.
  5. Carefully return the compute node to the bottom-side-down orientation.
After you install the front handle, install the compute node into the chassis (see Install a compute node for instructions).
