Service Equipment in the Rack

These steps provide general instructions for servicing equipment in the rack. Always refer to the equipment documentation for specific instructions.


Caution

Caution  -  To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, always load the heaviest item first from the bottom of the rack up. This arrangement makes the rack bottom-heavy and helps prevent the rack from becoming unstable.



Caution

Caution  -  To reduce the risk of personal injury, ensure that the rack is adequately stabilized before extending a component outside the rack. A rack might become unstable and tip over if more than one component is extended for any reason.



Note -  Extend only one piece of equipment out of the rack at a time. Secure a component into a rack completely before installing another component.

Note -  If you need to remove equipment from the rack, use a mechanical lift to lift the equipment. Otherwise, get help before attempting to lift heavy equipment.
  1. If necessary, shut down and power off the equipment about to be serviced.

    Refer to the equipment documentation for the specific instructions.


    Note -  Depending on the serviceable component, you might be able to service the component without powering off the equipment. For example, you might be able to replace air filters or hot-swap disk drives without powering off the equipment. Refer to your equipment documentation for these service procedures.
  2. If required, power off the rack.

    You might not need to power off the rack to service installed equipment. However, if you need to power off the rack, see Power Off the Rack for instructions.

  3. Extend the rack's anti-tilt bar.

    See Extend the Anti-tilt Bar for instructions.

  4. Attach an antistatic wrist strap.

    See Attach an Antistatic Wrist Strap for instructions.

  5. Service the installed equipment.

    Refer to the equipment service manual, or other documentation, for the specific service procedures.
