Precautions

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.

Prerequisites

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.

Tools and Equipment Needed

To install the shelf, you need the following tools:

Use one of the following racks for the Sun Disk Shelf.

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.

Tasks

Sun Disk Shelf Tasks

Installing the Sun Disk Shelf into the Rack Slide Rails

  1. Starting at the bottom of the cabinet, locate the appropriate rack unit (RU) height. Install Disk Shelves below controllers to prevent rack from tipping. The Sun Disk Shelf requires four standard mounting units (4RU) of vertical space in the cabinet.
  2. If you are using a universal 19-inch or Sun Rack II cabinet, snap an M6 square cage nut into the 4U location where you will be installing the system. Install in the top and bottom holes. Image
  3. Install appropriate rail plates in four locations on the rack (2 front and 2 back) by aligning the two pins on the rail plate with holes on the cabinet rails.
  4. Insert M6 screws in the top and bottom holes of each rail plate and tighten (8 total places).Image
  5. Install each rail by first aligning the front pins of the rack adapter plates with corresponding holes in the front of the rail, then adjust the rail to fit the rack and insert the pins from the rear rack adapter plates into the corresponding holes of the rail.
  6. Install four 8-32 screws into the four remaining front and rear holes of each rack rail (16 total).Image
  7. Using a mechanical lift or two people, one at each side of the shelf or controller, carefully lift and rest the shelf on the bottom ledge of the left and right rails. The following graphic illustrates the chassis insertion.

  8. Carefully slide the shelf into the cabinet until the front flanges of the shelf touch the vertical face of the rack.
  9. Tighten the captive screws on each side of the front of the shelf to secure the shelf to the rack.
  10. At the back of the disk shelf, slide a system locking clip onto each lower corner of the chassis.
