Remove the Server Top Cover
Servicing most of the server components requires that the top cover be removed.
Caution - If the top cover is removed without first removing the AC power cords,
the server host shuts down immediately and an event is logged to indicate
that the chassis top cover has been removed.
- Ensure that the AC power cords are disconnected from the server power supplies.
- To open the server fan door, slide the latches toward the front of
the server and swing up to the open position.
- To open the top cover, press the top cover release buttons and use
the recessed areas to slide the top cover toward the rear of the
server about 0.5 inches (12.7 mm) .
