3 Site Preparation

This chapter describes the tasks you must complete before installing Oracle Database Appliance into a rack and cabling it.

Preparing Your Site

Use the following procedure to prepare your site for Oracle Database Appliance installation:

Prepare Your Site

  1. Ensure that your site meets the environmental requirements in Environmental Specifications.
  2. Ensure that your site meets the electrical specifications in Electrical Specifications.
  3. Ensure that your site has adequate clearance for the shipping containers.
  4. Allow the equipment to acclimatize to the computer center environment.

    If significant temperature differences exist (> 10° C / 18° F) between the new system and the designated computer center, the equipment should be left in its boxes for a sufficient period of time to allow the temperature of the equipment to come to within a few degrees of the computer center.

    Caution  ‐  Equipment damage. The system should never be powered on unless it is within the supported operating range (temperature and humidity).


  5. Open the shipping containers.

    You should do this at the location where the system will be installed, but outside of the computer center itself.
