Power distribution unit

Note: For information and installation instructions for the IBM NetBAY Rack Power Distribution Units, see “NetBAY Power Distribution Units” on page 141".

Note: To remove the power distribution unit, you might need to remove the right side cabinet panel, the server installed in sliding tray 2 (in the primary IBM PC Server Rack), or sliding tray 5 (in the IBM PC Server Expansion Rack).

To remove the power distribution unit:

1.Power-off the rack.

2.Disconnect all power plugs from the power distribution unit.

3.Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the four screws from the front of the power distribution unit.

Type 9306 Models 4QS, 4QX, 9QS, 9QX, 9TS, 9TX 7

Note: These screws are held in place by nuts and washers. Hold the nut while you are unscrewing the screw to prevent the nut and washer from falling into the bottom of the cabinet.

4.Remove the power distribution unit from the cabinet.

Sliding trays

Models 4QS and 4QX come with either single latch slide rails or dual latch slide rails. Single latch slide rails have a front latch release on the right rail only. Dual latch slide rails have a front latch release on both rails. The slide rail FRU number for the 24-inch rack replaces the single latch slide rail with the dual latch slide rail.

Note: If a server is installed on a tray being removed, first remove the server.

Single latch rail tray

To remove a sliding tray with single latch rails:

1.Power-off the rack.

2.Open the rear door of the rack cabinet and remove the pin 1 that secures the sliding tray to the cable management arm

3.Loosen the thumbscrews 2 on the sliding tray and fully extend the sliding tray.

4.Use a 3/32-inch allen wrench to remove the five screws 3 from the left side of the sliding tray.

5.Lift the rear locking tab 4 and push the sliding tray approximately two inches into the cabinet.

6.Release the forward locking tab 5. Then, while holding the sliding tray in place, use your other hand to grasp the outside sliding rail 6 and push it into the rack cabinet until it disconnects from the sliding tray.

Type 9306 Models 4QS, 4QX, 9QS, 9QX, 9TS, 9TX 9

Dual latch rail tray

To remove a sliding tray with dual latch rails:

1.Power-off the rack.

2.Open the rear door of the rack cabinet and remove the pin 1 that secures the sliding tray to the cable management arm.

3.Loosen the thumbscrews 2 on the sliding tray and fully extend the sliding tray.

4.Push in on the spring of the right rear locking tab 3 and push the sliding tray approximately two inches into the cabinet.

5.Release both left and right forward locking tabs 4. Then, while holding the sliding tray in place, push both left and right outside sliding rails 5 into the rack cabinet until it disconnects from the sliding tray.

Note: Left side view for 4 and 5 are not shown.

Sliding rails

This procedure is for single latch sliding rails and dual latch sliding rails.

For single latch sliding rails, the right rail is the one that has the front latch. The left rail does not have a front latch.

For dual latch sliding rails, the right rail is the one that has the rear latch. The left rail does not have a rear latch.

To remove the sliding rails:

1.Power-off the rack.

2.Remove the sliding tray that is attached to the sliding rails that you want to remove. See “Sliding trays” on page 9.

3.Use a 3/32-inch allen wrench to remove the four screws that secure each of the sliding rails to the rack cabinet.

10 Hardware Maintenance Manual: IBM PC Server/Enterprise Racks

Note: You will need to adjust the position of the sliding rail in order to line up the access holes over the locations of the screws.

Keyboard tray

To remove the keyboard tray:

1.Power-off the rack.

2.Disconnect the keyboard and mouse cables from the keyboard and mouse extension cables.

3.Remove the keyboard and mouse from the keyboard tray.

4.Pull the keyboard tray straight out of the rack cabinet.

See the documentation that comes with the flat panel monitor rack mount kit for detailed installation instructions. Use the following general procedure to install a flat panel monitor in your rack cabinet:

Flat panel monitor

Rear screws

Mounting studs

Bumpers

Keyboard tray

Figure 26. Installing a flat panel monitor rack mount kit

1.Ensure that a keyboard tray is properly installed in your rack cabinet (see “Keyboard tray” on page 60) with at least 2U of clearance above the keyboard tray.

2.Install the flat panel monitor base on the flat panel monitor. See the documentation that comes with your flat panel monitor rack mount kit for detailed installation instructions.

3.Install the mounting studs and bumpers on the keyboard tray.

4.Attach the monitor base to the inside of the keyboard tray using the screws that come with the rack mount kit.

5.Fold the monitor all the way down against the bumpers; then, slide the keyboard tray into the rack cabinet to ensure that there is proper clearance.

6.See the documentation that comes with your flat panel monitor for information on how to connect power and how to connect the monitor to a server or console switch.

Removing the existing flat panel monitor stand

Use the following steps to remove the existing flat panel monitor stand from your monitor:

Type 9306 Model 900/910 61

1.Unplug the flat panel monitor and disconnect the power cord from the flat panel monitor power supply.

2.Carefully use a flat-blade screwdriver to pry the bottom of the cable cover c1d up and remove it. Save the cable cover for later reinstallation.

Figure 27. Removing the cable cover, hinge cover, and stand cover

3.Squeeze the sides of the hinge cover c2d and remove it.

Note: Even though this hinge cover is not used with the Flat Panel Monitor Rack Mount Kit, do not discard it. Store it with the other monitor stand parts you remove for possible future use.

4.Gently push the stand cover c3d and slide it backwards until it is completely off the stand.

5.Disconnect the signal cable and power cord from the flat panel monitor. Carefully remove and save the plastic cable clamp to free the power cord.

Note: The plastic cable clamp is reusable and is needed to secure the power cord after installing the Flat Panel Monitor Rack Mount Kit on the flat panel monitor.
