Install the Server Into the Slide-Rail Assemblies

Use this procedure to install the server chassis, with mounting brackets, into the slide-rail assemblies that are mounted to the rack.


Caution  - This procedure requires a minimum of two people because of the weight of the server. Attempting this procedure alone could result in equipment damage or personal injury.


Caution  -  Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that the rack does not become top-heavy and tip over. Extend your rack's anti-tilt bar to prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation.

  1. Push the slide-rails into the slide-rail assemblies in the rack as far as possible.
  2. Position the server so that the rear ends of the mounting brackets are aligned with the slide-rail assemblies that are mounted in the rack.
  3. Insert the mounting brackets into the slide-rails, and then push the server into the rack until the mounting brackets encounter the slide-rail stops (approximately 12 inches, or 30 cm).

  4. Simultaneously pull down and hold the slide-rail release levers on each mounting bracket while you push the server into the rack. Continue pushing the server into the rack until the slide-rail locks (on the front of the mounting brackets) engage the slide-rail assemblies.

    You hear an audible click.

    Caution  - Verify that the server is securely mounted in the rack and that the slide-rail locks are engaged with the mounting brackets before you install the optional cable management arm.
