Preliminary Setup Procedures

Unpack the Unit from the Carton

Inspect the packaging container for evidence of mishandling during transit. If the packaging container is damaged, photograph it for reference.

Carefully unpack the unit from the carton and verify that all accessories are included. Save all packing materials in the event that the unit needs to be returned to 8e6 Technologies.

The carton should contain the following items:

1 Nexsan Technologies unit

1 Mounting Kit

1 Accessory Kit containing:

2 AC Power Cords

1 Ultra SCSI 160 cable

Other Required Installation Items

In addition to the contents of the Nexsan carton, you will need the following items to install the storage device:

1 Standard CAT-5Ecable

1 CAT-5Ecrossover cable (from the ER server carton)

Inspect the unit and accessories for damage. If the contents appear damaged, file a damage claim with the carrier immediately.

Rack Mount the Server

Rack Mount Components

The following items are needed to install rails for rack mounting:

1 x Slide Kit and Mounting Hardware

1 pair Accuride Slide Rails

Rack Setup Precautions


Before rack mounting the unit, the physical environment should be set up to safely accommodate the unit. Be sure that:

The weight of all units in the rack is evenly distributed. Hazardous conditions may be created by an uneven weight distribution.

The rack will not tip over when the unit is mounted, even when the unit is fully extended from the rack.

For a single rack installation, stabilizers are attached to the rack.

For multiple rack installations, racks are coupled together.

The rack is grounded and will maintain a reliable ground at all times.

A power cord will be long enough to fit into the unit when properly mounted in the rack and will be able to supply power to the unit.

The connection of the unit to the power supply will not overload any circuits.

The unit is only connected to a properly rated supply circuit. Reliable earthing (grounding) of rack-mountedequipment should be maintained.

The air flow through the unit’s fan or vents is not restricted.

The maximum operating ambient temperature does not exceed 104°F (40°C).

NOTE: Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the rack.

WARNING: Extend only one component at a time. Extending two or more components simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.

Step 5

Attach outer rail to chassis using 4 screws and cage nuts per rail, 2 at each end.

Slide chassis into outer rail carefully, making sure the chassis is level with the slide.

NOTE: It’s easier if the drives and power supplies are removed first before sliding the chassis into the outer rail.
