Safety and handling precautions

To ensure your safety and the safe handling and correct operation of the equipment, follow all safety precautions and instructions.

CautionObserve safe lifting practices. Each server or each storage system can weigh 51 lb. (23 kg) or more. At least two people are required to handle and position a server in a rack.

CautionThere is a risk that a cabinet could fall over suddenly. To prevent this from occurring:
  • If your system comes with a rack stabilizer plate, install it.
  • Fill all expansion cabinets including all storage enclosures from the bottom to the top.
  • Do not remove more than one unit from the rack at a time.
