ThreatAnalysisReporterIntroduction

Thank you for choosing to evaluate the 8e6 Technologies Threat Analysis Reporter. This product addresses user-generatedWeb threats such as excessive use of bandwidth and inappropriate Internet usage, and provides network administrators tools to monitor such threats so management can enforce corporate Internet usage policies.

Working in conjunction with 8e6’s R3000 Enterprise Filter, the Threat Analysis Reporter translates end user Internet activity from the R3000’s logs into dynamic graphical snapshots of network Internet traffic. Using remediation tools in the console, administrators and management can then manage and control user-generatedWeb threats in real time.

Rack Mount the “S” or “MSA” Server

Rack Mount Instructions

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).
