Rack Mount the Server

Rack Setup Precautions

Warning:

Before rack mounting the server, the physical environment should be set up to safely accommodate the server. 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 server 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 server when properly mounted in the rack and will be able to supply power to the unit.

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

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

The air flow through the server’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.

Rack Mount Instructions for non-“H”Servers

Rack Setup Suggestions

Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the rails.

Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then work up.

Identify the Sections of the Rack Rails

You should have received two rack rail assemblies with the 8e6 server unit. Each of these assemblies consists of two sections: An inner fixed chassis rail that secures to the unit (A), and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to the rack itself (B). A sliding rail guide sandwiched between the two should remain attached to the fixed rack rail. The

A and B rails must be detached from each other in order to install.

To remove the fixed chassis rail (A), pull it out as far as possible. You should hear a

“click” sound as a locking tab emerges from inside the rail assembly and locks the inner rail. Then depress the locking tab to pull the inner rail completely out. Do this for both the left and right side rack rail.

Install the Chassis Rails

Position the fixed chassis rail sections you just removed along the side of the server chassis making sure the five screw holes line up. Note that these two rails are left/right specific. Screw the rail securely to the side of the chassis. Repeat this procedure for the other rail on the other side of the chassis. You will also need to attach the rail brackets when installing into a Telco rack.

Locking Tabs: As you have seen, both chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions. The first is to lock the server into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal position. Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place when fully extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of the rack when you pull it out for servicing.

Install the Rack Rails

Determine where you want to place the server unit in the rack. Position the fixed rack rail/sliding rail guide assemblies at the desired location in the rack, keeping the sliding rail guide facing the inside of the rack. Screw the assembly securely to the rack using the brackets provided. Attach the other assembly to the other side of the rack, making sure that both are at the exact same height and with the rail guides facing inward.

Install the Server into the Rack

You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack unit. The next step is to install the server chassis into the rack. Do this by lining up the rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails. Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when inserting).

Installing the Server into a Telco Rack

If you are installing the 8e6 server unit into a Telco type rack, follow the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only difference in the installation procedure will be the positioning of the rack brackets to the rack. They should be spaced apart just enough to accommodate the width of the Telco rack.

You should have received two rack rail assemblies with the 8e6 server unit. Each of these assemblies consists of two sections: An inner fixed chassis rail that secures to the unit (A), and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to the rack itself (B). Two pairs of short brackets to be used on the front side of the outer rails are also included.

Rack Mount Instructions for “H” Servers

Rack Setup Suggestions

Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the rails.

Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then work up.

Install the Inner Rails

Both the left and right side inner rails have been pre-attachedto the chassis. Proceed to the next step.

Install the Outer Rails

Begin by measuring the distance from the front rail to the rear rail of the rack. Attach a short bracket to the front side of the right outer rail and a long bracket to the rear side of the right outer rail. Adjust both the short and long brackets to the proper distance so that the rail can fiit snugly into the rack. Secure the short bracket to the front side of the outer rail with two M4 screws and the long bracket to the rear side of the outer rail with three M4 screws. Repeat these steps for the left outer rail.

Locking Tabs: Both chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions. The first is to lock the server into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal position. Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place when fully extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of the rack when you pull it out for servicing.

When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the locking tabs “click.” Finish by inserting and tightening the thumbscrews that hold the front of the server to the rack.
