ER Enterprise Reporter Introduction

Thank you for choosing to evaluate the 8e6 Technologies ER Enterprise Reporter. The ER is designed to readily obtain information about end users’ Internet activity via log files (text files containing Web access data) from a source device such as the 8e6

R3000 Enterprise Filter.

ER “H” server models include RAID technology for fault tolerance and high performance.

The ER is comprised of the ER server and client application. Once the ER server is configured and log files have populated the database, an administrator can use the ER client reporting application to virtually generate an unlimited number of queries and reports from data in the database. This data shows which end user is accessing which site, the duration of each site visit, and the frequency of these visits, and can help administrators identify Internet usage abusers, develop policies, and target sites to be filtered, in order to maximize bandwidth utilization and productivity. The client gives the administrator the ability to interrogate massive datasets through flexible drill-down technology, until the desired view is obtained, and then memorize and save the view to a user-defined report menu for repetitive, scheduled execution and distribution.

8e6 Enterprise Reporter Quick Start Guide

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-mounted equipment 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.

10

8e6 Enterprise Reporter Quick Start Guide

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.

8e6 Enterprise Reporter Quick Start Guide

11

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.

12

8e6 Enterprise Reporter Quick Start Guide

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). Two pairs of short brackets to be used on the front side of the outer rails are also included.

8e6 Enterprise Reporter Quick Start Guide

13

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-attached to 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.

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).

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.

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 page 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.

16

8e6 Enterprise Reporter Quick Start Guide

Check the Power Supply

This server is equipped with a universal power supply that handles 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz. A standard power cord interface (IEC 950) facilitates power plugs that are suitable for most European, North American, and Pacific Rim countries.

Power Supply Precautions

Warning:

Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from power surges, voltage spikes and to keep the server operating in case of a power failure.

In geographic regions that are susceptible to electrical storms, 8e6 highly recommends plugging the AC power cord for the server into a surge suppressor.

Use appropriately rated extension cords or power strips only.

Allow power supply units to cool before touching them.

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-step is 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 the CAT-5E crossover 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-5E crossover cable into the ER unit’s LAN 2 port—the port on the right (see Figure 1 Item B for non-“H” units, and Figure 2 Item B for “H” units).

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-5E crossover 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 sure all drives are installed in the storage device unit before powering on the unit. Be sure the ER unit is not 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-up process 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

display

A.Power off the ER unit first. (Refer to the Physically Connect the ER to the Network sub-step in 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 must always power on the storage device before 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-up process 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.

Management Alarm

A green LED indicates nominal status.

A red LED indicates RAID controller or non-PSU/Blower enclosure errors.

Silence Button

Insert a thin object to temporarily silence the audible alarm. This button also is used for confirming creation in the RAID configuration mode.

Disc Drive Alarm

The LED is illuminated yellow if a drive is suspected to be bad.

Disk Drive Activity

The LED is illuminated green when an installed drive is in a “ready” state. During activity, the LED will flicker.
