Installing the Server
Follow the Chapter 3 in your User’s Guide to install your
Anchor the Rack Cabinet. The rack cabinet must be an-
chored to an unmovable support or a front stabilizer to prevent it from falling over when one or more units are extended
in front of it on slide assemblies. The anchors must be able to
withstand a force of up to 113 kg (250 lbs.). You must also
consider the weight of any other device installed in the rack.
- It is required that two people are present when lifting and
assembling the server into a rack cabinet.
- When installing the rack door, make sure that hinge pins
at top and bottom of the door are completely inserted into
the rack. Failure to follow this instruction may cause the
door to fall to be broken and/or to result in personal injury.
Restricted Access Location
The server is intended for installation in a restricted
access location, mounted above a non-combustible
Before you begin the rack installation review the following
■ Locate a rack in a narrow space that would inhibit
devices from being pulled out from the rack completely.
■ Locate the rack on a floor that cannot bear the total
weight of the rack and devices mounted in the rack.
■ Locate the rack in a place where stabilizers cannot be
installed or where the rack can be installed only after
proper earthquake-resistant is constructed.
■ Locate the rack on an uneven or slanting floor
■ Locate the rack in an area that has drastic temperature
change (near a heater, air conditioner, or refrigerator).
■ Locate the rack where intense vibration may be gener-
Installing Hard Disk Drives
Your server does not contain any hard disk drives. Follow
these steps to install the hard disk drive.
If you have additional adapter boards and devices for your
server, install them before putting the server in the location
you have selected. Follow procedures in Chapter 9 of your
User’s Guide, plus installation inserts and vendor documents that come with the option.
■ To order a disk, contact your sales representative or
■ Locate the rack where corrosive gas is generated, (ex.
the area, where the vapor of sulphur is generated)
chemicals are nearby, or chemicals may be sprayed
■ Place the rack on a carpet not subject to the anti-static
■ Locate the rack where some objects may fall on the rack.
■ Locate the rack near a device that is generating intense
magnetic fields (such as a TV, radio, broadcast/communication antenna, power transmission wire, and electromagnetic crane.) If unavoidable, contact your service
representative to request proper shielding.)
■ Locate the rack where the power cord of the server must
be connected to an AC outlet that shares other devices
with large power consumption.
■ Locate the rack next to equipment that generates power
noise (e.g., contact spark at power-on/power-off of
commercial power supply through a relay). If you must
install the server close to such equipment, request your
service representative for separate power cabling or
noise filter installation.

■ Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage disk
drives, boards, and other parts. This system can
withstand normal levels of environmental ESD while
you are installing hard disk drives. However, we
recommend that you do all procedures in this instruction only at an ESD workstation or provide some
ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap
attached to chassis ground – any unpainted metal
surface – on your system when handling parts.
