Server warnings and cautions
Before installing a server, be sure that you understand the following warnings and cautions.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the drives and
the internal system components to cool before touching them.
- Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important
- Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily
accessible at all times.
- Unplug the power cord from the power supply to disconnect power to the equipment.
- Do not route the power cord where it can be walked on or pinched by items placed
against it. Pay particular attention to the plug, electrical outlet, and the point where
the cord extends from the server.
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.
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the
system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage
system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
To prevent electrostatic damage:
- Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
- Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
- Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
- Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
- Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
