Observe the following cautions when installing a Sun Disk Shelf into a rack using the rail assembly in the bolt-on rack mount kit. Note that if your rack mount kit shipped with installation instructions, use those instructions instead.
Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that it will not become top-heavy and tip over. Deploy the anti-tip bar to the prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation.
Ensure that the temperature in the rack does not exceed the controller's maximum ambient rated temperatures. Consider the total airflow requirements of all equipment installed in the rack to ensure that the equipment is operated within its specified temperature range.
Refer to the poster that shipped with the product or the Sun ZFS Storage 7x20 Service Manual located on http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks for an overview of your disk shelf.
Sun Disk Shelf Overview - view component diagrams and specifications
To install the shelf, you need the following tools:
You will need a No. 2 Phillips head screwdriver that is a minimum of 4 inches long.
A mechanical lift is highly recommended because the chassis can weigh between 91-170 lbs. (42-77kg). At least three people are required: two to install the shelf or controller and one spotter to engage the rails.
:If a mechanical lift is not available, remove the power supplies, SIM boards and hard disk drives to reduce the weight, see Sun Disk Shelf Maintenance Procedures and Controller Maintenance Procedures for instructions included in the Sun ZFS Storage 7x20 Service Manual on http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks.
Use one of the following racks for the Sun Disk Shelf.
Sun Rack 900/1000 cabinet
Sun Fire cabinet
Sun StorEdge Expansion cabinet
Sun Rack II 1042/1242 cabinet
Any 19-inch wide, 4-post, EIA-compatible rack or cabinet with a front-to-back depth between vertical cabinet rails of 61 cm to 91 cm (24 in. to 36 in.). The cabinet can have threaded or unthreaded cabinet rails.
Position the rack where the shelf is to be installed adjacent to the rack where the controller is installed, if separate. Stabilize the cabinet and lock the casters.
