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 fan door latches toward the
front of the server and swing the door up to the open position.
- To open the server top cover, press and hold down 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) .
