Release 2.8 for Linux x86-64
Part Number E23341-16
This chapter describes the tasks you must complete before installing Oracle Database Appliance X3-2. It includes:
Use the following procedure to prepare your site for Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 installation:
The largest boxes contain the server nodes. They measure 91.12 x 60.66 x 53.50 cm (35.87 x 23.88 x 21.06 inches).
The system is shipped in three boxes on a pallet. It includes one container for each server node, and one for the storage shelf. If you ordered a storage expansion shelf, it is shipped in a separate box.
We recommend that you open the containers at the location where the system will be installed.
The shipping containers includes:
The storage shelf includes:
Preconfigured storage shelf
Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 setup poster
Each server node includes:
Preconfigured server node
Accessory kit, including:
Accessing Product Documentation
Safety and legal documentation
Rackmount guide and alignment template
SAS cables, Ethernet cables, a set up poster, and labels are shipped with the storage shelf.
The rack into which you install Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 must meet the requirements listed in the following table:
This section describes safety precautions you must follow when installing the server into a rack.
Caution - Personal injury or equipment damage: Prevent the rack from tipping over. 1) Deploy the anti-tilt bar or legs on the equipment rack before beginning an installation. 2) Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that the rack will not become top-heavy and tip over. 3) Mount equipment in the rack such that it does not create uneven or dangerous mechanical loading. 4) Do not use slide-rail mounted equipment as a shelf or workspace.
Caution - Equipment damage caused by elevated temperature: 1) If you install the equipment in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, ensure that the operating ambient temperature inside the rack does not exceed the maximum ambient temperature specified for the server. For server environmental requirements, see Environmental and Electrical Requirements. 2) Install the equipment in the rack such that airflow is not restricted or impeded.
Caution - Supply circuit damage and data loss: The AC circuits used to supply power to the system must be rated for the maximum amount of power that the system requires. See Electrical Specifications for input power requirements.
Caution - Equipment damage: Maintain reliable earthing. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).
