The operating environment requirements are the same for both servers. Your environmental control system must provide intake air for the servers that complies with the limits specified in Environmental Specifications.
To avoid overheating, do not direct warmed air:
Toward the front air intake of the server
Toward the server access panels
Note - When you receive your server, place it in the environment where you will install it. Leave the server in its shipping crate at its final destination for 24 hours. This resting period prevents thermal shock and condensation.
The servers have been tested to meet all functional requirements when operating in the operating environmental limits presented in Environmental Specifications. Operating computer equipment in extremes of temperature or humidity increases the failure rate of hardware components. To minimize the chance of component failure, use the server within the optimal temperature and humidity ranges.
