Attach an Antistatic Wrist Strap

Always wear an antistatic wrist strap connected to a metal surface on the chassis when you work on server components.

  • Attach an antistatic wrist strap to one of the ESD grounding jacks on the server.

    Rackmounted servers contain ESD grounding jacks in the front and rear of the rack.


    Note -  If you are installing a stand-alone server into a non-Oracle rack, refer to the rack's documentation for the ESD jack locations.
    • The Oracle Rack Cabinet 1242 contains eight ESD grounding jacks, four in the front and two in the rear of the rack.

      These grounding jacks accommodate 4-mm (0.16-in.) banana plug connectors.
