Chapter 2: 2 Installation 2.1 Before you proceed Take note of the following precautions before you install the server management board to the remote server system. Unplug the server system power cord from the wall socket before touching any component. Use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power supply case, before handling components to avoid damaging them due to static electricity. Hold components by the edges to avoid touching the ICs on them. Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the bag that came with the component. Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power supply is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and/or components. 2.2 Hardware installation To install the server management board: 1. Locate the Baseboard Management Card header on the motherboard. 2. Orient and press the Management Card in place. The motherboard illustration is for reference only.
