I got a full tower server rack and I removed all the servers from it except one.

 

I just can't figure it out. It has four release clips in each corner but they seam to do nothing. I can side out about an inch before it stops. It feels Like it need push button to release it, but I can't see anything (apart from the release clips in each of the corners).

It looks like it is screwed to the rails (in the top pic)?

Can you unscrew the mounting clips themselves, and take the whole thing out still attached?

 

Otherwise, lets call this plan C:

Brute strength and ignorance seems to work well in these situations.

 

But yea it looks like in that top photo there are screws in the side. Or are they just locking screws for the rails?

Ho... I've been a fickkking idiot!!! I just found out that one of the sprung loaded thumb screws on the front was stuck still snagged on a bolt on the front of the chassis. Putting it basically I did not undo a bolt enough.

 

Case closed of the "Stuck server rack", thanks for everybody help.

Moral of this story...."If the bolt is lose, it does not mean it not connected".
