Disconnecting cables and removing the side cover

  - Attention - The presence of 5 V ac standby power might result in damage to the hardware unless you disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before you open the server.

  1.  Remove any media (diskettes or CDs) from the  drives, then, power-off all attached devices and the server.
    Caution: The Power Control button on the front of the  server does not turn off the electrical current  supplied to the server. The server also might  have more than one power cord. To remove all  electrical current from the server, ensure that all  power cords are disconnected from the power  source.
  2.  Touch the rear of the bare metal frame to dissipate  any static electricity from your body.
  3.  Before disconnecting cables, be sure to note where  they attach, so that you can correctly reattach them later.
    Note:  If you are in the United Kingdom, you must perform step 5 before step 4.
  4.  Unplug all power cords (cables) from electrical outlets.
  5.  If you have a modem or fax machine attached to the  server, disconnect the telephone line from the wall outlet and the server.
  6.  Note the location of the remaining cables and cords.
    Caution: Electrical current from power, telephone, and  communication cables can be hazardous. To avoid personal injury or equipment  damage, disconnect the attached power cords, telecommunications systems,  networks, and modems before you open the server covers, unless instructed  otherwise in the installation and configuration procedures.
  7.  Disconnect all cables attached to the server, this includes power cords,  input/output (I/O) cables, and any other cables that are connected to the server.
    1.  For more information about the rear connectors, see Input/output Connectors.
