THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.

THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequencyenergy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequencyenergy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense.

You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:

Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.

Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.

Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.

Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)

Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Connect a Category 3, 4, or 5 unshielded twisted-paircable to an Ethernet connector.100BASE-TXand1000BASE-TFast Ethernet standards require Category 5 or higher cabling.

The WAVE-594andWAVE-694appliance has two Ethernet connectors that are attached to the Ethernet controllers (seeFigure 1-5).The Ethernet controllers are integrated on the system board. They provide an interface for connecting to a10-Mbps,100-Mbps,or1-Gbpsnetwork and providefull-duplex(FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the network. If the Ethernet ports in the server support auto negotiation, the controllers detect thedata-transferrate(10BASE-T,100BASE-TX,or1000BASE-T)and duplex mode (full duplex or half duplex) of the network and automatically operate at that rate and mode. You do not have to set any jumpers or configure the controllers.

Note There is a third RJ45 connector on the front of the appliance (seeFigure 1-1).This is a console port. Do not connect this port to your network.

Understanding the Environmental Requirements

System Reliability Considerations

To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that the following occurs:

Each of the hard drive bays has either a drive or a filler panel installed.

The Interface Module bay has either a Cisco Interface Module or a filler panel installed.

Each power supply bay has either a power supply of filler panel installed.

For rack configurations, make sure that space is available around the appliance to enable the cooling system to work properly. See the documentation that comes with the rack for additional information.

A removed hot-swappabledrive is replaced within 1 minute of removal.

Cables for optional adapters are routed according to the instructions provided with the adapters.

A failed fan is replaced within 48 hours.

Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge

Static electricity can harm delicate components inside the appliance. To prevent static damage, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your system’s electronic components. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal surface on the chassis.

You can also take the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):

When unpacking a static-sensitivecomponent from its shipping carton, do not remove the component from the antistatic packing material until you are ready to install the component in your system. Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure to discharge static electricity from your body.

When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging.

Handle all sensitive components in a static-safearea. If possible, use antistatic floor pads and workbench pads.

Handle the appliance carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.

Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.

Do not leave the appliance where others can handle and possibly damage the appliance.

Take additional care when handling appliances during cold weather, because heating reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Understanding the Environmental Requirements

To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a well-ventilated,climate-controlledenvironment.

For details about the WAVE-594andWAVE-694environmental requirements, seeAppendix A, “WAVE-594 and WAVE-694 Hardware Specifications” and the“Temperature” section on page B-2.

Understanding the Power Requirements

Understanding the Power Requirements

Installation of this equipment must comply with local and regional electrical regulations governing the installation of information technology equipment by licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to operate in installations covered by NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code) and NFPA-75,1992 (code for Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment).

Warning Take care when connecting units to the supply circuit so that wiring is not overloaded.Statement 1018

Caution Protect the WAVE appliance from power fluctuations and temporary interruptions with a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS). This device protects the hardware from damage caused by power surges and voltage spikes and keeps the system in operation during a power failure.

When installing more than one WAVE appliance, you may need to use additional power distribution devices to safely provide power to all devices. Observe the following guidelines:

Balance the WAVE appliance power load between available AC supply branch circuits.

Do not allow the overall system AC current load to exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit AC current rating.

Do not use common power outlet strips for this equipment.

Provide a separate electrical circuit for the WAVE appliance.

For details about the WAVE-594andWAVE-694power requirements, seeAppendix A, “WAVE-594 and WAVE-694 Hardware Specifications.”

Understanding the Grounding Requirements

To ensure proper operation and safety, you must properly ground the WAVE appliance. In the United States, install the equipment in accordance with NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code), Article 250, as well as any local and regional building codes. In Canada, you must install the equipment in accordance with Canadian Standards Association, CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code. In all other countries, you must install the equipment in accordance with any regional or national electrical wiring codes, such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Code 364, parts 1 through 7. Furthermore, you must be sure that all power distribution devices used in the installation, such as branch wiring and receptacles, are listed or certified grounding-typedevices.

Because of the high ground-leakagecurrents associated with multiple WAVE appliances connected to the same power source, we recommend the use of a PDU that is either permanently wired to the building’s branch circuit or includes a nondetachable cord that is wired to anindustrial-styleplug. NEMAlocking-styleplugs or those complying with IEC 60309 are considered suitable for this purpose. Using common power outlet strips for the WAVE appliance is not recommended.

Rack-MountingConsiderations, Parts, and Tools

To allow for servicing and adequate airflow, observe the following space and airflow requirements when deciding where to install a rack:

Leave a minimum clearance of 63.5 cm (25 in) in front of the rack.

Leave a minimum clearance of 76.2 cm (30 in) behind the rack.

Leave a minimum clearance of 121.9 cm (48 in) from the back of the rack to the back of another rack or row of racks.

The WAVE-594andWAVE-694appliance draws in cool air through the front door and expels warm air through the rear door. Therefore, the front and rear rack doors must be adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the cabinet, and the rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape from the cabinet.

Caution To prevent improper cooling and damage to the equipment, do not block the ventilation openings.

When vertical space in the rack is not filled by a WAVE appliance or rack component, the gaps between the components cause changes in airflow through the rack and across the WAVE appliances. Cover all gaps with filler panels to maintain proper airflow.

Chapter 3 Installing the WAVE-594andWAVE-694

Removing or Replacing a WAVE Appliance

Removing or Replacing a WAVE Appliance

To remove a WAVE appliance from your network, power it down, disconnect the power cords and network cables, and physically remove the chassis from the rack.

The WAVE appliance is in constant communication with the router on your network. When the router notices that the WAVE appliance is no longer responding to it, the router stops sending requests to the WAVE appliance. This action is transparent to users. If other WAVE appliances are attached to the router, the router continues sending requests to the other WAVE appliances.

When you remove a WAVE appliance, the pages that were cached on that appliance are no longer available to the router or other WAVE appliances. You might see an increase in outgoing web traffic that might have otherwise been fulfilled by the WAVE appliance that you are removing. However, after a time, the router and other WAVE appliances redistribute the load of web traffic.

If you remove the last WAVE appliance from your network, you can also disable WAVE support on the router. However, this action is not necessary because leaving WAVE support enabled when there are no WAVE appliances attached has no effect on the router’s performance.

To replace a WAVE appliance, remove it from the network, and then install a new WAVE appliance and configure it using the same configuration parameters (IP address and so forth) that you used for the removed WAVE appliance.

Replacing a Hard Disk Drive/Solid State Drive

Note TheWAVE-594supports both Solid State Drives and Hard Disk Drives. You cannot mix HDD and SSD in the same chasis.

For details about the WAVE-594appliance specifications, seeAppendix A, “Appliance Specifications”.

Hard drives are hot-swappabletherefore it is not necessary to power the system down before installing or replacing.

When removing hard drives from the WAVE appliance, observe the following general guidelines:

The system automatically sets all drive numbers.

Drives must be the same capacity to provide the greatest storage space efficiency when drives are grouped together into the same drive array.

Note All hard disk drives being used in the appliance must be identical.

Caution To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the appliance for more than 1 minute without either a hard disk drive or a filler panel installed in each bay.

To replace a hard disk drive in a bay, follow these steps:

Step 1 Review the information in the “Safety Warnings and Cautions” section on page 2-1 and the “Safety Guidelines” section on page 2-2.

Step 2 Press the button and swing the handle out. (SeeFigure 4-2).

Note Wait 5 seconds before removing to let the disk spin down.

Chapter 4 Installing Hardware Options for the WAVE-594andWAVE-694

Replacing a Fan

Step 4 Within one minute, insert the new drive into the same slot by aligning the replacement drive assembly with guide rails in the bay and sliding the drive assembly into the bay until it stops. Make sure that the drive is properly seated in the bay.

Step 5 Close the drive handle.

Step 6 Check the hard disk drive status LED after the system has booted to verify that the hard disk drive is operating correctly. If the amber hard disk drive status LED for a drive is lit continuously, that drive is faulty and must be replaced. If the green hard disk drive activity LED is flashing, the drive is being accessed.

Step 7 Wait 1 minute and then verify that the replaced disk drive is in the Rebuilding state by using theshow disks details command in EXEC mode.

Note The system automatically starts the rebuild operation when it detects the removal and reinsertion of a drive that is part of the logical RAID drive.

Step 8 Wait until the rebuild operation is complete. A disk rebuild operation may take several hours. You can check if the rebuild operation is complete by using theshow disk details command in EXEC mode. The physical drive state will be Online and the RAID logical drive state will be Okay after the rebuild operation is completed.

Step 9 Use theshow disk tech command in EXEC mode to verify that the firmware and BIOS information is correct for both hard drives.

If you have multiple disk failures and your RAID-1logical status is Offline, you must recreate theRAID-1array. For more information on disk removal and replacement procedures, see theCisco Wide Area Application Services Configuration Guide chapter named “Maintaining Your WAAS System.”

Replacing a Fan

The WAVE appliance supports six fan assemblies that are hot-swappable.

Fan assemblies can only be inserted in one orientation.

Note Fan assemblies must be inserted and can only function with the surface marked “TOP” facing up.

Caution To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the appliance for more than 1 minute without a fan installed in each bay.

To replace a fan assembly, follow these steps:

Step 1 Review the information in the “Safety Warnings and Cautions” section on page 2-1 and the “Safety Guidelines” section on page 2-2.

Step 2 Disengage the fan latch and pull the fan out by the handle (seeFigure 4-3).

Chapter 5 WAVE Interface Modules

Interface Module Descriptions

Inline Interface

When you configure the WAVE appliance for inline interception mode, you can set attributes to control which interfaces are to be used over which VLANs. By default, the module operates on all inline-capableinterfaces and VLANs. You can configure the inline redirection feature using the WAAS CLI or the WAAS Central Manager GUI.

Note Throughout this section, we refer to a WAVE appliance configured for inline interception mode as a

WAVE inline appliance.

The WAAS software defines two interface types: A group interface that represents an inline pair grouping and a port interface that represents the individual port. These interfaces are referred to as inlineGroup and inlinePort.

InlineGroup interfaces are numbered using the format slot/group. The slot number is the slot in which the adapter is inserted. Since there is only one slot, the slot number is always 1.

The group number starts from 0 and can go up to 4 on 8-portInterface Modules. For4-portInterface Modules, the groups are numbered 0 and 1. Groups are numbered from left to right.

InlinePort interfaces are numbered slot/group/lan or slot/group/wan. The last attribute is the LAN or WAN designator.

For copper Interface Modules, the top row consists of WAN ports and the bottom row consists of LAN ports. For fiber Interface Modules, the ports are designated as WAN and LAN form left to right. For example, the four ports on the 4-portfiber Interface Module are designated as “W0 L0 W1 L1” in inline mode:

W0—InlineGroup1/0/WAN

L0—InlineGroup1/0/LAN

W1—InlineGroup1/1/WAN

L1—InlineGroup1/1/LAN

The inline network adapter also includes an onboard programmable watch dog timer (WDT) controller that allows you to set the time to wait after a failure event, such as a power outage or a kernel crash, before the unit begins to operate in mechanical bypass mode. This can be configured using the inline failover timeout global configuration command:

(config)# inline failover timeout ? <1-1>1 second

<25-25>25 seconds<5-5>5 seconds

In mechanical bypass mode, the traffic is bridged between the LAN and WAN ports of each group. Mechanical bypass mode prevents the WAVE appliance from becoming a single point of failure and allows traffic to continue to flow between the router and the client while it passes through an unresponsive WAVE appliance without being processed.

For more information about configuring the inline network adapter, see the Cisco Wide Area Application Services Configuration Guide.

Network Adapter Cabling Requirements

Gigabit Ethernet—Copper

The Interface Module ships with two types of cables: crossover and straight-through.When you connect the WAVE inline network adapter, the cable that you use depends on the link speed (Gigabit Ethernet or Fast Ethernet) and the types of devices (DCE or DTE) being connected.

Note You must retain the same link speed from one end of the connection to the other end. Inline adapter interfaces are able to autonegotiate link speeds. If you configure any of your connecting interfaces for Fast Ethernet (whether on a switch or a router), your WAVE inline adapter uses Fast Ethernet. If you configure any of your connecting interfaces for Gigabit Ethernet, your WAVE inline adapter uses Gigabit Ethernet. Speed and duplex settings are port specific so that two inline ports can negotiate different speeds independently.

If you are connecting a WAVE inline appliance between two devices using Gigabit Ethernet, you can use either straight-throughcables, crossover cables, or any combination of the two cable types, regardless of the type of device. However, for consistency, we recommend that you usestraight-throughcables for all Gigabit Ethernet connections.

Table 5-5 shows the cable requirements for WAVE appliance andnon-WAVEappliance connections when you are using Gigabit Ethernet end to end.

Chapter 5 WAVE Interface Modules

Network Adapter Cabling Requirements

Some switches support automatic medium-dependentinterface crossover (MDIX). You can configure MDIX by using themdix auto global configuration switch command. If your switch supports MDIX, you do not need to follow these cabling rules because MDIX automatically adjusts transmit and receive pairs when an incorrect cable type (crossover orstraight-through)is installed on a 10/100 Fast Ethernet port. However, when you configure MDIX, you must also configure the port to use autosense (not manual selection of speed/duplex).

Caution If you are connecting to Fast Ethernet ports on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAVE inline appliance, you must consider the types of devices that are being connected, and you must use the correct cables. You must follow these cabling instructions for the inline network adapter to work properly. (SeeTable 5-6.For illustrations and examples, see the“Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections” section on page 5-10.)

To connect the inline network adapter using the correct cables for Fast Ethernet connections, follow these steps:

Step 1 Determine the type of cable that you would use for a direct connection between your two end devices (without a WAVE inline network appliance connected between them) by using the following standard cabling rules:

When you are directly connecting two network devices that are similar, such as two switches, use a crossover cable.

When you are directly connecting two network devices that are different, such as a switch and router, use a straight-throughcable.

Note Because the inline network adapter has an internal crossover connection that becomes active when the InlineGroup interface is placed in mechanical bypass mode, you must decide which cable you would use to connect the two network devices directly, and then you must install the other cable type (on one side, usually the WAN side of the inline appliance) instead.

Table 5-6 shows the cable requirements for WAVE andnon-WAVEconnections when you are using Fast Ethernet end to end.

Chapter 5 WAVE Interface Modules

Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections

Step 2 Connect Fast Ethernet ports on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAVE inline appliance by using the following cable types:

On the LAN side of the connection, use a straight-throughcable between the WAVE inline appliance and the network device.

On the WAN side of the connection, use the cable that is different from the cable that you would use to connect the two network devices directly (as determined in Step 1).

For example, if you are connecting a router and a switch (two different devices) through the WAVE inline appliance, use a straight-throughcable on the LAN side of the connection and use a crossover cable on the WAN side of the connection. (If you were connecting the two different devices directly, you would use astraight-throughcable, so use the crossover cable instead.)

If you are connecting two switches (or two similar devices), use straight-throughcables on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAVE inline appliance.

Figure 5-10 throughFigure 5-12 show which cables to use for the WAVE LAN and WAN connections between Fast Ethernet ports.

Gigabit Ethernet—FiberOptic

The following three SFP+ pluggable transceiver modules are supported for use with the 2-portFiber Optic 10 Gigabit Ethernet Interface Module:

SFP-10G-SR—Shortrange fiber xcvr

SFP-H10G-CU3M—Three meter captive copper cable with xcvrs

SFP-H10G-CU5M—Five meter captive copper cable with xcvrs Transceivers not supported will be rejected by the software.

For fiber cable length reach and IEEE standards for the supported transceivers, refer to the pluggable 10G optics data sheet on Cisco.com:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps5455/data_sheet_c78-455693.html

Optical reach is 137 m (449 ft) to any individual port. This allows for a total of 274 m (899 ft) when operating in bypass mode.

Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections

WAVE appliances can be installed physically between two network devices (such as the branch office router and branch office LAN switch) by connecting the WAVE inline network adapter ports to the network devices using the proper cables.

If you are connecting a WAVE inline appliance between two devices using Gigabit Ethernet, you can use either straight-throughcables, crossover cables, or any combination of the two cable types, regardless of the type of device. This section shows cabling examples for Fast Ethernet connections only, because Fast Ethernet has specific cabling requirements.

The inline network adapter has four ports that are divided into two inline groups (see the “Ports and LED Indicators” section on page 5-5).The WAVE appliance can be physically placed inline between two distinct network paths, creating redundant WAN links. (SeeFigure 5-10.)

Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections

Two WAVE appliances with inline network adapters can also be installed back-to-backin a serial fashion between two network devices for failover purposes. In this serial cluster configuration, if one WAVE appliance fails, the other WAVE appliance can provide optimization. (SeeFigure 5-11.)

Note When you connect two WAVE inline appliances to each other serially, always use a crossover cable between the two WAVE appliances. (SeeFigure 5-12.)

This chapter contains the following sections:

Identifying System Problems, page 6-1

Checking Connections and Switches, page 6-2

Troubleshooting the Ethernet Controller, page 6-2

Undetermined Problems, page 6-4

Problem-Solving Tips, page 6-5

Error Symptoms, page 6-6

Use the information in this chapter to determine whether a problem originates with the hardware or the software. For further assistance, contact your Cisco customer service representative.

Note When console redirection is enabled (it is disabled by default), all the tests available from a keyboard are accessible through the console connection as well. (Mouse support, however, is not available through the console connection.)

Caution Customer-replaceablecomponents include the WAVE Interface Modules, hard disk drives, power supply assemblies, fans, and memory. All other components that are not orderable as spare hardware options can only be replaced by a qualified service technician. Once you have identified a faulty component, contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC).

Identifying System Problems

To identify system problems, follow these steps:

 

Step 1

Check the power LED.

 

Step 2

Check the system fault LED (see System fault LED, page 1-3).If the status is yellow, check for alarms

 

 

using the show alarms command.

 

Step 3

Power down the appliance and all external devices.

 

Step 4

Check all cables and power cords. (See the “Checking Connections and Switches” section on page 6-2.)

Chapter 6 Troubleshooting the System Hardware

Checking Connections and Switches

Step 5 Power up the appliance.

Step 6 If theself-diagnosticprograms were completed successfully and you still suspect a problem, see the“Undetermined Problems” section on page 6-4.

Step 7 Check the system error log to see if an error was recorded by the system.

Checking Connections and Switches

Improperly set switches and controls and loose or improperly connected cables are the most likely source of problems for the chassis or other external equipment. A quick check of all the switches, controls, and cable connections can easily solve these problems. (See Figure 1-1 for the location of front panel controls and indicators. SeeFigure 1-3 for the location of back panel connectors on the system.)

To check all the connections and switches, follow these steps:

Step 1 Power down the system. Disconnect all the power cables from their electrical outlets.

Step 2 If the system is connected to a power strip (or power distribution unit), turn the power strip off and then on again.

If the power strip is receiving power go to Step 5.

If the power strip is not receiving power go to Step 3.

Step 3 Plug the power strip into another electrical outlet.

If the power strip is receiving power, the original electrical outlet probably does not function. Use a different electrical outlet.

If the power strip is not receiving power go to Step 4.

Step 4 Plug a system that you know works into the electrical outlet.

If the system receives power, the power strip is probably not functioning properly. Use another power strip.

If the system does not receive power, go to Step 5.

Step 5 Reconnect the system to the electrical outlet or power strip.

Make sure that all connections fit tightly together.

Step 6 Power up the system.

If the problem is resolved, the connections were loose. You have fixed the problem.

If the problem is not resolved, call your customer service representative. (See the “Obtaining

Documentation and Submitting a Service Request” section on page xiv.)

Troubleshooting the Ethernet Controller

Chapter 6 Troubleshooting the System Hardware

Troubleshooting the Ethernet Controller

Network Connection Problems, page 6-3

Ethernet Controller Troubleshooting Chart, page 6-3

Network Connection Problems

If the Ethernet controller cannot connect to the network, check the following conditions:

Make sure that the cable is installed correctly.

The network cable must be securely attached at all connections. If the cable is attached but the problem remains, try a different cable.

If you set the Ethernet controller to operate at either 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps, you must use Category 5 or higher cabling.

Determine whether the switch or device to which the WAVE appliance is connected supports autonegotiation. If it does not, try configuring the integrated Ethernet controller manually to match the speed and duplex mode of the switch.

Check the Ethernet controller LEDs on the appliance back panel. (See Figure 1-2.)These LEDs indicate whether a problem exists with the connector, cable, or switch:

The Ethernet link status LED is on when the Ethernet controller receives a link pulse from the switch. If the LED is off, there might be a defective connector or cable or a problem with the switch.

The Ethernet activity LED is on when the Ethernet controller sends or receives data over the Ethernet network. If the Ethernet activity LED is off, make sure that the switch and network are operating and that the correct device drivers are installed.

Maintaining the WAVE-594andWAVE-694

Proper use of preventive maintenance procedures can keep the WAVE-594andWAVE-694in good operating condition and minimize the need for costly,time-consumingservice procedures. This chapter contains maintenance procedures that you should perform regularly.

This chapter covers the tasks required for maintaining a WAVE-594andWAVE-694or aWAVE-594andWAVE-694farm:

Maintaining Your Site Environment, page B-1

Using Power Protection Devices, page B-5

Maintaining Your Site Environment

An exhaust fan in the power supply cools the power supply and system by drawing air in through various openings in the system and blowing it out the back. However, the fan also draws dust and other particles into the system, causing contaminant buildup, which results in an increase in the system’s internal temperature and interferes with the operation of various system components.

To avoid these conditions, we recommend keeping your work environment clean to reduce the amount of dust and dirt around the system, thereby reducing the amount of contaminants drawn into the system by the power supply fan.

This section discusses various environmental factors that can adversely affect system performance and longevity.

Maintaining Your Site Environment

Temperature

Temperature extremes can cause a variety of problems, including premature aging and failure of chips or mechanical failure of appliances. Extreme temperature fluctuations can cause chips to become loose in their sockets and can cause expansion and contraction of disk drive platters, resulting in read or write data errors.

To minimize the negative effects of the temperature on system performance, follow these guidelines:

Ensure that the system is operated in an environment that does not exceed 0 to 40ºC (32 to 104ºF) in either direction. The upper end of operating temperature above applies up to an altitude of 1,000 meters (3,281 feet) and then subtract 3ºC for each additional 1,000 meters up to a maximum operational altitude of 3,000 meters (9,843 feet).

Ensure that the system has adequate ventilation. Do not place it within a closed-inwall unit or on top of cloth, which can act as insulation. Do not place it where it will receive direct sunlight, particularly in the afternoon. Do not place it next to a heat source of any kind, including heating vents during winter.

Adequate ventilation is particularly important at high altitudes. System performance may not be optimum when the system is operating at high temperatures as well as high altitudes.

Make sure that all slots and openings on the system remain unobstructed, especially the fan vent on the back of the system.

Clean the system at regular intervals to avoid any buildup of dust and debris, which can cause a system to overheat.

If the system has been exposed to abnormally cold temperatures, allow a 2-hourwarm-upperiod to bring it up to a normal operating temperature before turning it on. Failure to do so may cause damage to internal components, particularly the hard disk drives.

If intermittent system failures are noticed, try reseating any socketed chips, which might have become loose because of temperature fluctuations.

Humidity

High-humidityconditions can cause moisture migration and penetration into the system. This moisture can cause corrosion of internal components and degradation of properties such as electrical resistance and thermal conductivity. Extreme moisture buildup inside the system can result in electrical shorts, which can cause serious damage to the system.

Each system is rated to operate at 10 to 90 percent non-condensingrelative humidity. Buildings in which climate is controlled by air conditioning in the warmer months and by heat during the colder months usually maintain an acceptable level of humidity for system equipment. However, if a system is located in an unusually humid location, a dehumidifier can be used to maintain the humidity within an acceptable range.

Altitude

Operating a system at high altitude (low pressure) reduces the efficiency of forced and convection cooling and can result in electrical problems related to arcing and corona effects. This condition can also cause sealed components with internal pressure, such as electrolytic capacitors, to fail or perform at reduced efficiency.

Appendix B Maintaining the WAVE-594andWAVE-694

Maintaining Your Site Environment

Each system is designed to operate at a maximum altitude of 3000 meters (9,843 feet) with some de-ratingof maximum operating temperature (seeAppendix A, “WAVE-594 and WAVE-694 Hardware Specifications”) and can be stored at a maximum altitude of 4572 meters (15,000 feet).

Dust and Particles

A clean operating environment can greatly reduce the negative effects of dust and other particles, which act as insulators and interfere with the operation of a system’s mechanical components. In addition to regular cleaning, you should follow these guidelines to deter contamination of the system equipment:

Do not permit smoking anywhere near the system.

Do not permit food or drink near the system.

Use dust covers when the system is not in use.

Close windows and outside doors to keep out airborne particles.

Corrosion

The oil from a person’s fingers or prolonged exposure to high temperature or humidity can corrode the gold-platededge connectors and pin connectors on various devices in the system. This corrosion on system connectors is a gradual process that can eventually lead to intermittent failures of electrical circuits.

To prevent corrosion, you should avoid touching contacts on boards and cards. Protecting the system from corrosive elements is especially important in moist and salty environments, which tend to promote corrosion. Also, as a further deterrent to corrosion, the system should not be used in extreme temperatures, as explained in the “Temperature” section on page B-2.

Electrostatic Discharge

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) results from the buildup of static electricity on the human body and certain other objects. This static electricity is often produced by simple movements such as walking across a carpet. ESD is a discharge of a static electrical charge that occurs when a person whose body contains such a charge touches a component in the system. This static discharge can cause components, especially chips, to fail. ESD is a problem particularly in dry environments where the relative humidity is below 50 percent.

To reduce the effects of ESD, you should observe the following guidelines:

Wear a grounding wrist strap. If a grounding wrist strap is unavailable, touch an unpainted metal surface on the chassis periodically to neutralize any static charge.

Keep components in their antistatic packaging until they are installed.

Avoid wearing clothing made of wool or synthetic materials.

Appendix B Maintaining the WAVE-594andWAVE-694

Maintaining Your Site Environment

Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) from a system can adversely affect devices such as radio and television (TV) receivers operating near the system. Radio frequencies emanating from a system can also interfere with cordless and low-powertelephones. Conversely, RFI fromhigh-powertelephones can cause spurious characters to appear on the system’s monitor screen.

RFI is defined as any EMI with a frequency above 10 kilohertz (kHz). This type of interference can travel from the system to other devices through the power cable and power source or through the air like transmitted radio waves. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) publishes specific regulations to limit the amount of EMI and RFI emitted by computing equipment. Each system meets these FCC regulations.

To reduce the possibility of EMI and RFI, follow these guidelines:

Operate the system only with the system cover installed.

Ensure that the screws on all peripheral cable connectors are securely fastened to their corresponding connectors on the back of the system.

Always use shielded cables with metal connector shells for attaching peripherals to the system.

Magnetism

Because they store data magnetically, hard disk drives are extremely susceptible to the effects of magnetism. Hard disk drives should never be stored near magnetic sources such as the following:

Monitors

TV sets

Printers

Telephones with real bells

Fluorescent lights

Shock and Vibration

Excessive shock can damage the function, external appearance, and physical structure of a system. Each system has been designed to operate properly even after withstanding a minimum of six consecutively executed shock pulses in the positive and negative x, y, and z axes (one pulse on each side of the system). Each shock pulse can measure up to 5 gravities (G) for up to 11 milliseconds (ms). In storage, the system can withstand shock pulses of 20 G for 11 ms.

Excessive vibration can cause the same problems as mentioned earlier for shock, as well as causing components to become loose in their sockets or connectors. Systems can be subject to significant vibration when being transported by a vehicle or when operated in an environment with machinery that causes vibration.

Using Power Protection Devices

Power Source Interruptions

Systems are especially sensitive to variations in voltage supplied by the AC power source. Overvoltage, undervoltage, and transients (or spikes) can erase data from memory or even cause components to fail. To protect against these types of problems, power cables should always be properly grounded and one or both of the following methods should be used:

Use one of the power protection devices described in the “Using Power Protection Devices” section on page B-5.

Place the system on a dedicated power circuit (rather than sharing a circuit with other heavy electrical equipment). In general, do not allow the system to share a circuit with any of the following:

Copier machines

Air conditioners

Vacuum cleaners

Space heaters

Power tools

Teletype machines

Adding machines

Laser printers

Facsimile machines

Any other motorized equipment

Besides these appliances, the greatest threats to a system’s supply of power are surges or blackouts caused by electrical storms. Whenever possible, turn off the system and any peripherals and unplug them from their power sources during thunderstorms.

If a blackout occurs—evena temporaryone—whilethe system is turned on, turn off the system immediately and disconnect it from the electrical outlet. Leaving the system on may cause problems when the power is restored; all other appliances left on in the area can create large voltage spikes that can damage the system.

Using Power Protection Devices

A number of devices are available that protect against power problems such as power surges, transients, and power failures. The following subsections describe some of these devices:

Line Conditioners, page B-6

Appendix B Maintaining the WAVE-594andWAVE-694

Using Power Protection Devices

Surge Protectors

Surge protectors are available in a variety of types and usually provide a level of protection commensurate with the cost of the device. Surge protectors prevent voltage spikes, such as those caused during an electrical storm, from entering a system through the electrical outlet. Surge protectors, however, do not offer protection against brownouts, which occur when the voltage drops more than 20 percent below the normal AC line voltage level.

Line Conditioners

Line conditioners go beyond the overvoltage protection of surge protectors. Line conditioners keep a system’s AC power source voltage at a fairly constant level and therefore can handle brownouts. Because of this added protection, line conditioners cost more than surge protectors—upto several hundred dollars. However, these devices cannot protect against a complete loss of power.

Uninterruptible Power Supplies

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems offer the most complete protection against variations in power because they use battery power to keep the system running when AC power is lost. The battery is charged by the AC power while it is available, so once AC power is lost, the battery can provide power to the system for a limited amount of time—from15 minutes to an hour orso—dependingon the UPS system.

UPS systems range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, with the more expensive units allowing you to run larger systems for a longer period of time when AC power is lost. UPS systems that provide only 5 minutes of battery power let you conduct an orderly shutdown of the system but are not intended to provide continued operation. Surge protectors should be used with all UPS systems, and the UPS system should be Underwriters Laboratories (UL) safety-approved.
