  • Page 12: Safety Notices

    Safety Notices WARNING To avoid a risk of injuries, installation should be performed by trained technical personnel. Your server is equipped with a front stabilizer. Engage the front stabilizer during installation. For stability and to distribute the weight, also attach side stabilizers. Otherwise, the rack may topple over and cause injuries.
  • Page 13: Safety Notices For Users Outside Of The U.s.a. And Canada

    WARNING Some locations within the server have high voltage and therefore are very dangerous. To avoid risk of electric shock, turn off all server power and disconnect power cables before working inside the server unit. The main power of your server is turned off by turning off the power source to the server or removing the power cable.
  • Page 14: Care And Handling

    Care and Handling Use the following guidelines to properly handle and care for your system. Protect the system from extremely low or high temperatures. Let the system warm (or cool) to room temperature before using it. Keep the system away from magnetic forces. Keep the system dry.
