Removing the compute node cover

Use this information to remove the cover from a compute node.

Before you remove the compute node cover, 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.

Statement 21
Graphic illustrating Safety Statement 21
Hazardous energy is present when the compute node is connected to the power source. Always replace the compute node cover before installing the compute node.

To remove the compute node cover, complete the following steps:

  1. Press on the release latch and the push point at the same time and slide the cover toward the rear of the compute node.
  2. Lift the cover away from the compute node.

    Attention: Do not use any tools or sharp objects to press on the release latch. Doing so might result in permanent damage to the release latch.
  3. Lay the cover flat or store it for future use.

If you are instructed to return the cover, follow all packaging instructions, and use any packaging materials for shipping that are supplied to you.
