This procedure describes how to remove components from your server so that two persons can lift it into the rack. If you are going to use a mechanical lift, you do not need to perform this procedure.
Before You Begin
Caution - Circuit boards and hard drives contain electronic components that are extremely sensitive to static electricity. Ordinary amounts of static electricity from clothing or the work environment can destroy the components located on these devices. Do not touch the components without antistatic precautions, especially along the connector edges. For more information, refer to Antistatic Precautions and Procedures in Sun Server X2-8 (formerly Sun Fire X4800 M2) Service Manual.
Note - This procedure assumes that the server is powered off and all cables are disconnected.
Caution - To prevent system failure, you must return CPU modules to their original locations. Mark CPU module slot locations carefully before removing them from the chassis.
The chassis contains four CPU module slots; each must have a CPU module or a filler panel.
Note - Because of their light weight, there is no need to remove filler panels.
For each CPU module:
Caution - When the module is partway out of the chassis, close the ejectors, and grasp the module. Do not handle the module by the ejectors.
Caution - The CPU module is heavy. Use two hands.
The upper bays can be used as a hand-hold when you are moving the chassis.
Caution - Do not insert forks from a lift device into these open bays, as this causes severe and non-repairable damage.
Caution - To prevent system failure, you must return PCIe EM cards to their original locations. Mark PCIe EM slot locations carefully before removing them from the chassis.
Squeeze the clamp (1) to release the fan module (2), and then pull it from the chassis (3).
You can use the recess as a hand-hold when moving the chassis.
Caution - Do not insert forks from a lift device into this open bay, as this causes severe and non-repairable damage.
