Before You Begin
Perform the steps in How to Install the Universal Rack Mounting Hardware in a Round-Hole Rack.
The use of a mechanical lift is recommended.
Caution - The server weighs 180 pounds (82 kg). 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 instructed in How to Remove Components to Reduce Weight, and use two persons to lift the server into place.
Caution - Drop Hazard! Do not release the server until it is 12 inches (304 mm) into the rack, and is firmly supported by the shelf rails. The shelf rails can not support the server until it is 12 inches (304 mm) inside the rack.
Note - If the server is still on a pallet, you can leave it on the pallet and lift both the server and the pallet with the mechanical lift, and slide the server off the pallet and onto the shelf rails.
For square-hole racks, use four M6 x 16 screws.
For round-hole racks, use four M6 x 12, or four 10-32 x 10 screws.
Note - On square-hole racks, the screws pass through the rack and thread into the adapter bracket. On round-hole racks, the screws thread into the rack rails.
