Replacing the air baffle

Use this information to install the air baffle.

To install the air baffle, complete the following steps:

  1. Read the safety information that begins on Safety and Installation guidelines.
  2. Turn off the compute node and peripheral devices and disconnect the power cords and all external cables.
  3. Remove the cover (see Removing the compute node cover).
  4. Align the air baffle pins with the baffle pin holes on the left hand side of the chassis for the left air baffle; then, lower the air baffles into the compute node. Press the air baffles down until it is securely seated.
    Note: Close the retaining clip on each end of the DIMM connector before installing the air baffle for proper cooling.
