Screw and Cover Locations Removing Cover Panels The NetServer has three removable cover panels (see Figure 1-6): Cover 1 covers the side where the I/O board is located. Cover 2 covers the area above the processor. Cover 3 covers the side where the processor is located.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Figure 1-6. HP NetServer LH 3r Covers 1. Remove cover 2 by unscrewing the thumbscrew, pulling the cover forward, and then slightly lifting it to disengage it. 2. Hold the cover and pull it away from the chassis.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Removing the HP NetServer LH 3r System Board Remove the system board from the NetServer chassis to upgrade the processor modules. The system board is secured to the chassis by two retaining latches (see Figure 1-7). System Board Retaining Latches Figure 1-7.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Place crosspiece off edge of work surface Figure 1-8. Placing the System Board on the Work Surface Proceed to the next section "Installing the Processor Modules." Installing the Processor Modules Familiarize yourself with the components on the system board (see Figure 1-9). Note the location of the processor slots, Voltage Regulator Module slots, and processor speed switches.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Removing the Terminator Board If your system has one processor, a terminator board is installed in the upper slot. You must remove the terminator board before installing a processor module into this slot. (See Figure 1-10). 1.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Removing the Processor Module If you are upgrading an existing processor module, you must first remove the module from the slot. To remove a processor module: 1. Press in on each processor module release latch until it remains in (see Figure 1-11).

Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Setting the Processor Speed Switches After installing processors, verify that the processor speed switches are set correctly. If the switches are not set correctly, set them accordingly. NOTE If two processors are installed in the NetServer, both must be the same speed.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Completing the Installation Complete the processor module installation by installing the system board, covers, and bezel. CAUTION Never operate this NetServer without first installing all covers and the front bezel. Operating the system without all covers in place reduces critical cooling airflow over some components, such as hard disk drives and processor modules.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation Completing the HP NetServer LH 3r Installation To complete the installation: 1. Insert the system board into the plastic guides in the chassis. Hold the retaining latches vertically while inserting the board until it touches its socket on the backplane.
Chapter 1 Processor Module Installation 4. See Figure 1-15. Slide the server into the rack and attach the bezel hinge to the two (previously installed) rack nuts on the left column (refer to Figure 1-7) by means of two screws. Secure the latch plate on the right side of the server to the two previously installed rack nuts on the right column.
