Appendix: SAN Installation

Appendix: SCSI ConnectedStorageDevice

This appendix pertains to the installation of the optional NAS (SCSI Connected Storage Device or “SAN”) unit.

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.

NOTE: Refer to the ER safety precautions. In addition to being applicable to the ER, this information also applies to this storage device unit.

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.

Appendix: SAN Installation

Step 1

Remove inner slide rail as shown. Press down on latch to release.

Step 2

Attach inner slide rail to chassis using 3 screws as shown.

NOTE: When attaching the extended brackets, attach them loosely at first. Adjust the length to fit the cabinet, and then tighten.

Appendix: SAN Installation

Step 3

Attach left and right rear (long) extended brackets to the outer rail using 2 screws, 2 washers, and 2 nuts for each bracket.

NOTE: Make sure the flange is on the bottom edge.

Step 4

Attach left and right front (short) extended brackets to the outer rail using 2 screws, 2 washers, and 2 nuts for each bracket.

NOTE: Make sure the flange is on the bottom edge.

Appendix: SAN Installation

Step 5

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

Step 6

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.

Install the Unit

Link the ER Unit with the SCSI Connected Device

This sub-stepis a continuation from the Storage Device Setup (for Attached Storage Units) portion of Step 1A or 1B in the ER section. The procedures outlined in this step require the use of theCAT-5Ecrossover cable and the Ultra SCSI 160 cable.

A.Plug the SCSI cable into the upper right slot on the back of the ER unit (see Figure 1, Item A).

B.Plug one end of the CAT-5Ecrossover cable into the ER unit’s LAN 2port—theport on the right (see Figure 1 Item B fornon-“H”units, and Figure 2 Item B for “H” units).

Figure 1: Back of the non-ER“H” unit

Figure 2: Back of the ER “H” unit

C.Plug the other end of the SCSI cable into the storage device’s upper left disk “0” (zero) channel (see Figure 3 Item A).

Appendix: SAN Installation

D.Plug the other end of the CAT-5Ecrossover cable into the storage device’s port “0” (zero) on the right (see Figure 3 Item B).

E.Plug the storage device’s AC power cords into the back of the unit (see Figure 3 Item C).

F.Plug the loose ends of the AC power cords into a power source with an appropriate rating. It is strongly suggested you use an uninterruptible power supply.

WARNING: Be sureall drives are installed in the storage device unit before powering on the unit. Be sure the ER unit isnot powered on.

G.Turn on the power switches at the back of the storage device, which are positioned to the right of the power cord connectors.

The boot-upprocess may take up to 5 minutes. When the unit is booted up, the three vertical LED lights at the left of the front panel will be lit up (see Figure 4).

Once all LED lights are lit, the ER can be powered on.

Shut Down, Restart Procedures

Follow the procedures in this section if you need to shut down or restart the storage device.

Shut Down the Storage Device Unit

If you need to shut down the storage device, always follow these steps:

Figure 4: LED


A.Power off the ER unit first. (Refer to the Physically Connect the ER to the Network sub-stepin Step 1B of the ER section for shut down procedures.)

B.Power off the storage device next by turning off both switches in the back of the unit.

Restart the Storage Device Unit

The storage device must be restarted after a power failure. In this instance, the storage device may already be turned on, but needs to be booted up again.

WARNING: You mustalways power on the storage devicebefore powering on the ER unit. Since the storage device is an information database, if you experience a power interruption or if you power off the storage device without going through the standard shut down procedures, you may lose data and/or damage the file system.

To restart the storage device, press the power button on the front panel. The boot-upprocess may take up to 5 minutes.

LED Display

Temperature and Ventilation Status

When the LED is green, the blowers are operating at an acceptable RPM, and the internal temperature sensors are within acceptable limits.

The LED alternates green and red to indicate a predicted failure of one blower or an alarmingly rapid increase in temperature.

If the LED is red, a blower has failed or the unit is too hot, and an audible alarm will sound.

Power Supply Status

The LED is green if both power supplies are functional.

The LED is red if either power supply has failed, and an audible alarm will sound. In this scenario, an authorized service personnel should examine the LEDs on each power supply module to determine which has failed.

WARNING: Inadvertently removing the functional, surviving power supply will result in system failure and possible data loss.
