Remove the Server From the Rack


Caution  -  The server weighs approximately 35.0 lbs (15.88 kg). Two people are required to dismount and carry the chassis.

  1. Disconnect all the cables and power cords from the server.
  2. Remove the cable management arm (CMA).

    Refer to Remove the Cable Management Arm in Oracle Servers X8-2 and X8-2L Installation Guide.

  3. Extend the server to the maintenance position.

    See Extend the Server to the Maintenance Position.

  4. From the front of the server, pull the green slide-rail release tabs toward the front of the server, and pull the server out of the rack until it is free of the rack rails.

    A slide-rail release tab is located on each slide-rail.

    Note -  To pull the green slide-rail release tab, place your finger in the center of the tab, not on the end, and apply pressure as you pull the tab toward the front of the server.
  5. Set the server on a sturdy work surface.
