Chapter 13 Alternative Rack Mounting Step 3: Placing the HP NetServer in the Rack WARNING If you have not done so already, pull the rack’s stabilizing foot forward out of the bottom of the rack to prevent rack instability while mounting the HP NetServer. Failure to do so could result in injury and equipment damage.
Chapter 13 Alternative Rack Mounting WARNING With power supplies in place, the HP NetServer does not balance evenly when lifted by its handles. Two people may have difficulty holding the HP NetServer level enough to fasten it to the slides. Removing the power supplies improves the balance of the HP NetServer and reduces the likelihood of accidents.
Chapter 13 Alternative Rack Mounting 3. With the help of at least one other person, lift the server by its four handles. Move the server between the extended slide members, so that the slides are underneath the server’s handles on each side. See Figure 13-8. 1.
