Caution - The server weighs about 180 pounds (100 kg) when fully loaded with components. To reduce the risk of serious personal injury or equipment damage, use a mechanical lift to install the server into the rack. If a lift is not available, remove components as described in How to Remove Components to Reduce Weight. This reduces the weight of the server to 80 pounds (45 kg).
Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that it does not become top-heavy and tip over. Deploy your rack’s anti-tilt bar to prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation.
Before installing the server into a rack, gather the tools, equipment, and staff required.
