Remove heavy components from cabinet

Remove some of the heavier components that are located in the top of the cabinet to ensure maximum stability.

Before you begin


  1. Record the cable configuration for future reassembly if any cables must be disconnected.
  2. Remove the drive trays and controller-drive trays in the top half of the cabinet. Keep all of the components from the same tray together.
    Note: You do not need to remove the power supplies or other components from the rear of each tray.
  3. Place each component in a separate antistatic bag. If the original shipping boxes are available, use them to transport the components.

After you finish

Go to Move cabinet to its permanent location.
