Caution - Ensure that the route to the installation site is free of obstacles, and always use two or more people to move the server.
Caution - Avoid rolling the server over metal plates that contain tear drop or diamond patterns. These patterns can cause the casters to spin and force the server to move off course.
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.

See Raise the Leveling Feet (Sun Rack II) for instructions.
Always push the server along its edges. Move the server slowly, at approximately two feet per second (0.65 meters per second) or slower.
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.
Caution - Be careful when moving the server near floor openings. If the server's casters fall into a floor opening, 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:
