Installing the compute node cover

Use this information to install the compute node cover.

Before you install the compute node cover, read Safety and Installation guidelines.

If you are replacing (installing) a cover, be sure to have the system service label kit available for use during the procedure, (see Parts listing, Types 2585 and 7906).

Attention: You cannot insert the compute node into the Flex System chassis until the cover is installed and closed. Do not attempt to override this protection.

Statement 21

Hazardous energy is present when the compute node is connected to the power source. Always replace the compute node cover before installing the compute node.

To install the compute node cover, complete the following steps:

  1. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.
  2. Orient the cover so that the posts on the inside of the cover slide into the slots on the compute node.
    Note: Before you close the cover, make sure that the air baffles and all components are installed and seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the compute node.

  3. Hold the front of the compute node and slide the cover forward to the closed position, until it clicks into place.
After you install the compute node cover, install the compute node into the chassis (see Installing a compute node in a chassis for instructions).
