This guide shows you how to install the Sun Fire V890 server into a rack or cabinet. After you install the server into the cabinet according to the instructions in this guide, see the Sun Fire V890 Server Owner's Guide for information about system setup and software installation.
To install the server into a cabinet, complete the following tasks:
The rackmounting kit is shipped from the factory in one carton.
Inspect the shipping carton for physical damage. If the carton is damaged, request that the carrier's agent be present when the carton is opened. Keep all contents and packing material for the agent's inspection.
Check the list in the following section to make sure that you received the complete kit. Contact Sun Microsystems or your distributor/reseller if any parts are missing.
You will need one rackmounting kit for each Sun Fire V890 server you intend to install into a cabinet. Each rackmounting kit contains the following parts:
The kit contains a plastic bag holding 10-32 screws (black in color) and M4 screws. You will use these screws to install the tray assembly and server into the cabinet.
The following figure shows the screws at actual size.
Any screws not used in the rack installation are spares.
If you have an EIA-compliant rackmounting kit, you will also have two short rear brackets included in your kit. These rear brackets are for installing the Sun Fire V890 server into a 31.5-inch (80-cm) depth (rail-to-rail) cabinet, such as the Sun Fire Expansion Cabinet. The short rear brackets are in a bag labeled 560-2682-01 in the rackmounting kit.
