Caution - A fully-configured, unpackaged server weighs nearly 3700 lbs (1678 kg). Ensure that the route to the installation site is free of obstacles, and always use four or more people to move the server.
Walk the entire route and note any obstacles that must be avoided. Ensure that all floors along the route can support the full weight of the server.
Cover raised data center flooring with fiberboard to protect it, prepare a metal sheet to cross any gaps in the floor (for example, when entering an elevator), and prepare a metal ramp to go up or down minor floor elevations.

Alternatively, remove both doors and take them separately to the installation site. For instructions on removing a door, see Remove the Door.
See Raise the Leveling Feet for instructions.
For extra leverage, remove the rear door and push the server on either side of the rear LED panel. For instructions of removing the door, see Remove the Door.
Caution - Never tip or rock the server. Tipping or rocking the server, or pushing on the side panels can tip the server over.
Caution - Never push the server by pressing in the center of a door. The door might bend under the pressure. If necessary, remove the doors before moving the server. See Remove the Door for instructions.
Caution - Be careful when moving the server near floor cutouts. If the server's castors fall into a floor cutout, the floor and the server could be severely damaged.
Caution - When maneuvering around corners, always turn the server gradually.
When necessary, use a metal plate to cross gaps on the floor and use a metal ramp to cross slight bumps on the floor or stairs. For more information, see:
