Caution - Proper airflow is essential for keeping the server's internal temperatures within a safe operating range.
Air flows from the front to the rear of the server.
Follow these guidelines to ensure unrestricted airflow in the server:
Adhere to the minimum airflow clearance specifications. See Physical Specifications.
Install the server so the front faces the cool aisle and the rear faces the warm aisle.
Do not direct warm air into the server.
Prevent recirculation of air within a rack or cabinet.
When servicing server internal components, ensure that air ducts, baffles, and filler panels are properly installed.
Route cables so they do not interfere with airflow.
