Install a Fan Frame

When installing a fan frame, handle it by the green labels at the center of the frame. The two fan frames and all eight fan modules must be installed to operate an eight-CMOD configured server.

  1. Position the fan frame at the opening in the front of the server with the air vane hinges at the top.
