Receive the Server

  1. Before the server arrives, ensure that the receiving area is large enough for the shipping package.

    For more information, see:

  2. Unload the packaged server from the delivery truck.
    • If your loading dock meets the height and ramp requirements for a standard freight carrier truck, you can use a pallet jack to unload the server.

    • If the loading dock does not meet the requirements, provide a standard forklift or other means to unload the server.

    • Alternatively, you can request that the server be shipped in a truck with a lift gate.

  3. When the server arrives, leave the server in its shipping container and move it to a location where it can acclimate to the same temperature as the data center.

    Note -  Acclimatization time: If the shipping package is very cold or hot, allow the shipping container to stand unopened in the computer room or a similar environment to come to the same temperature as the computer room. Acclimatization might require up to 24 hours.
