Unpacking Your FC or SATA Array
This chapter describes the procedure for unpacking your Sun StorEdge 3510 FC array or Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA array package. The following topics are covered in this chapter:
Follow these guidelines for unpacking the equipment.
1. Select a suitable area for unpacking.
2. Store all packing material and boxes for possible equipment returns.
3. Check the contents sheet in your product package.
The contents sheet summarizes the standard contents for your product. See Section 3.2, Checking the Package Contents for more information.
4. Compare the packing slip and the list of parts with the items you received.
If the list of parts on your packing slip does not match the items you received, or if any items appear damaged, immediately notify your carrier agent and the supplier who prepared your shipment.
5. Carefully examine the cables provided in the package.
If any cable appears to be damaged, contact the technical service department for an immediate replacement.
6. Check the list of Section 3.4, Customer-Provided Cables.
These are required to complete your installation.
Inspect your Sun StorEdge 3510 FC array or Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA array packages for standard items as well as purchased options before you begin installation. If any parts are missing or damaged, contact your sales representative immediately.
Check that you received all field-replaceable units (FRUs) ordered with your Sun StorEdge 3510 and 3511 FC Arrays. For additional FRUs, consult your sales representative. For instructions on how to install or replace FRUs, review the following manuals located on the product web site:
Caution - You can mix capacity in the same chassis, but not spindle speed revolutions per minute (RPM) on the same SCSI bus. For instance, you can use 36-Gbyte and 73-Gbyte drives with no performance problems if both are 10K RPM drives. Violating this configuration guideline leads to poor performance.
For a list of the FRU part numbers, refer to the Sun StorEdge 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide.
Customers must provide a minimum of one fiber-optic cable per host to connect a host to a RAID array. Two fiber-optic cables are required for a redundant path configuration.
To obtain qualified cables, consult your Sun sales representative.
Refer to Sun StorEdge 3000 Family Rack Installation Guide for instructions on how to install and prepare a rack or cabinet for mounting your array.
