Replacing the air baffle

Use this information to install the air baffle.

Before you install the air baffle, complete the following steps:
  1. Read Safety and Installation guidelines.
  2. If the compute node is installed in a NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure, remove it (see Removing a compute node from a chassis for instructions).
  3. Carefully lay the compute node on a flat, static-protective surface, orienting the compute node with the bezel pointing toward you.

To install the air baffle, complete the following steps:

  1. Remove the cover (see Removing the compute node cover).
  2. Align the air baffle hooks with the baffle hook slots 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.

  3. Reinstall the cover (see Installing the compute node cover).
  4. Slide the compute node into the rack.
  5. Reconnect the power cords and any cables that you removed.
  6. Turn on the peripheral devices and the compute node.
