Installing the Server
Follow the Chapter 3 in your User’s Guide to install your server.
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.
Avoid Injury.
- 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 material.
Before you begin the rack installation review the following guidelines. Do Not:
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 dealer.
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 accidentally.
Place the rack on a carpet not subject to the anti-static process.
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.
1. Install the rack cabinet.
2. Install the server.
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.
