About the Oracle Database Appliance Poster

The Oracle Database Appliance setup and configuration poster document is a four-page PDF in Tabloid size format (11 x 17) with the page number at the bottom left corner of each page. Each page shows Oracle Database Appliance configuration tasks. The upper right corner on pages 2, 3, and 4 of the poster contains a quick response (QR) code to link to the documentation, and URL addresses for the documentation are located at the bottom of page 4 of the poster.

This document provides a text equivalent for that poster that can be read with assistive technology tools. There is a separate section for each page of the poster. Each section title contains the related poster page title and the section content is an alternate text description of the page content.

Page One: Cabling the Interconnect and Storage for Oracle Database Appliance X3-2

Page 1, "Cabling the Interconnect and Storage for Oracle Database Appliance X3-2," describes how to connect each server node to the storage shelf and storage expansion shelf, and how to connect the interfaces of each cluster node for the interconnect network. The poster consists of two images of the Oracle Database Appliance and three tables describing the cabling.

The image at the top left of the page shows the back of Oracle Database Appliance with its two nodes (node 1 on top and node 0 below it) and a storage shelf underneath node 0. The storage shelf has two I/O modules that sit on top of each other between the power modules that are at either end of the shelf. By convention, the top module is known as I/O module (or controller) 1, and the bottom module is known as I/O module (or controller) 0.

The image at the top right of the page includes the same configuration as the left-hand image, also shown from the back, but with a storage expansion shelf at the bottom of the stack of components. The storage expansion shelf also has two I/O modules, positioned and identified in the same way as the I/O modules for the storage shelf.

Both images include lines that represent the cables to be installed. All these cables start from one of the sockets that are arranged in pairs along the top of the back panel on the server nodes. (There is a second row of sockets on each node, but these are not required for the cabling shown on this page.) Each pair of sockets is identified with a numbered label and the text "PCIe3" under the number. The numbers, from left to right, are 1, 2, and 3. There are four SAS cables shown in the left-hand image and they terminate in sockets in the storage shelf. There are also two CAT-6 cables in the left-hand image, and they run between the two nodes. In the right-hand image, there are four more SAS cables that connect the server nodes to the storage expansion shelf.

The lines are identified with callout numbers so that they can be identified in the tables that describe where they are connected. For convenience, the lines are colored to match the colors of the labels used on the sockets where they are to be attached. These same colors are also used on the cables that you receive with Oracle Database Appliance so that, if you wish, you can match the cable with the images on the poster. However, this again for convenience: the four SAS cables are identical and can be used for any of connections described on this page. Similarly, you can use either of the colored CAT-6 cables when making the connections shown by callouts 5 and 6.

The detailed cabling instructions in the tables on this page use both the callout number and the color to identify a cable. In each table, there are three columns:

The text description of the tables is provided in the following sections, each of which has the same title as the related table.

Storage Shelf Table

The table describes the locations for the start and end of each SAS cable that connects Oracle Database Appliance server nodes to the storage shelf. There is one row in the table for each of the four SAS cables shown in the left-hand image on this page.

Row 1 is for the dark blue SAS cable identified by callout 1. The cable starts from node 0 and is plugged into the SAS0 socket of the number 2 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 1 and is plugged into port 0.

Row 2 is for the light blue SAS cable identified by callout 2. The cable starts from node 0 and is plugged into the SAS1 socket of the number 3 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 0 and is plugged into port 0.

Row 3 is for the dark red SAS cable identified by callout 3. The cable starts from node 1 and is plugged into the SAS1 socket of the number 2 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 1 and is plugged into port 1.

Row 4 is for the light red SAS cable identified by callout 4. The cable starts from node 1 and is plugged into the SAS0 socket of the number 3 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 0 and is plugged into port 1.

Network Table

The table describes the locations for the start and end of each CAT-6 cable that provide the cluster interconnect for the two server nodes in Oracle Database Appliance.

Row 1 is for the green CAT-6 cable identified by callout 5. The cable starts from node 1 and is plugged into the NET0 socket of the number 1 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on node 0 and is plugged into the NET0 socket of the number 1 PCIe3 pair.

Row 2 is for the yellow CAT-6 cable identified by callout 6. The cable starts from node 1 and is plugged into the NET1 socket of the number 1 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on node 0 and is plugged into the NET1 socket of the number 1 PCIe3 pair.

Storage Expansion Shelf Table

The table describes the locations for the start and end of each SAS cable that connects Oracle Database Appliance server nodes to the storage expansion shelf. There is one row in the table for each of the four SAS cables shown in the right-hand image on this page.

Row 1 is for the dark blue SAS cable identified by callout 7. The cable starts from node 1 and is plugged into the SAS0 socket of the number 2 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 1 of the storage expansion shelf and is plugged into port 0.

Row 2 is for the light blue SAS cable identified by callout 8. The cable starts from node 1 and is plugged into the SAS1 socket of the number 3 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 0 of the storage expansion shelf and is plugged into port 0.

Row 3 is for the dark red SAS cable identified by callout 9. The cable starts from node 0 and is plugged into the SAS1 socket of the number 2 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 1 of the storage expansion shelf and is plugged into port 1.

Row 4 is for the light red SAS cable identified by callout 10. The cable starts from node 0 and is plugged into the SAS0 socket of the number 3 PCIe3 pair, and the cable ends on I/O module 0 of the storage expansion shelf and is plugged into port 1.
