Removing the access panel

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the drives and the internal system components to cool before touching them.

CAUTION: Do not operate the server for long periods with the access panel open or removed. Operating the server in this manner results in improper airflow and improper cooling that can lead to thermal damage.

  1. Power down the server if performing a non-hot-plug installation or maintenance procedure.
  2. Extend the server from the rack, if applicable.
  3. Lift up on the hood latch handle and remove the access panel.
