Unpack the Server


Caution  -  Always use at least three people to unpack the server from its shipping container.

Note -  Remove the shipping container materials in a conditioned space away from the final installation site to reduce the amount of airborne particles from entering the data center.
  1. Ensure that you have enough space to unpack the server safely.

    See Rackmounted Server Unpacking Area.

  2. Locate the unpacking instructions.
    • On an Oracle Rack Cabinet 1242, the unpacking instructions are silk screened on the shipping carton and ramps.
    • On a Sun Rack II 1242, the unpacking instructions are attached to the outside of the shipping package.
  3. Follow the unpacking instructions to unpack the server.

    The following illustration displays the major components of the shipping package.


    Caution  -  Never stand in front of the server as it is being rolled down the shipping pallet ramp.
