2.7 Removing the Server Top Cover
Servicing some components requires you to remove the top cover from the server.
Caution - Removing the top cover without properly powering down the server and disconnecting the
AC power cords from the power supplies will result in a chassis intrusion switch
failure. This failure causes the server to be immediately powered off. Any changes
you make to the memory riser or DIMM configurations will not be properly
reflected in the service processor's inventory until you replace the top cover.
Remove the Server Top Cover

latches and simultaneously lift both latches in an upward motion (Removing the Server Top Cover).
