Install the compute node cover

Use this information to install the compute node cover.

To avoid possible danger, read and follow the following safety information.

S021
shock hazard
CAUTION:
Hazardous energy is present when the compute node is connected to the power source. Always reinstall the compute node cover before installing the compute node.
Before installing the compute node cover:
  1. Read Installation Guidelines to ensure that you work safely.

  2. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.
Attention: You cannot insert the compute node into the Flex System chassis until the cover is installed and closed. Do not attempt to override this protection.

To install the compute node cover, complete the following steps:

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

  1. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.
  2. Orient the compute node cover so that the posts on the inside of the cover slide into the slots on the compute node.
    Note: Before you close the compute node cover, make sure that the air baffle and all components are installed and seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the compute node. Retention clips that secure the I/O expansion adapters must be in the closed position to install the compute node cover.
  3. Hold the front of the compute node and slide the compute node cover forward to the closed position, until it clicks into place.
  1. Install the compute node into the chassis (see Install a compute node for instructions).
