Remove the compute node cover

Use this information to remove the cover from the compute node.

To avoid possible danger, read and follow the following safety statement.
  • S014
    shock hazard
    CAUTION:
    Hazardous voltage, current, and energy levels might be present. Only a qualified service technician is authorized to remove the covers where the label is attached.
  • S033
    240VA shock hazard
    CAUTION:

    Hazardous energy present. Voltages with hazardous energy might cause heating when shorted with metal, which might result in spattered metal, burns, or both.

Before you remove the compute node cover, complete the following steps:
  1. Read Installation Guidelines to ensure that you work safely.

  2. Power off the corresponding compute node that you are going to perform the task on.

  3. Remove the compute node from the chassis (see Remove the compute node from the chassis).

  4. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.

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

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

  1. Press on the release button and the push point at the same time and slide the cover toward the rear of the compute node.
  2. Lift the cover away from the compute node.
