Release 2.8.1

E41668-01

November 2013

This document provides an HTML text description for the Oracle Database Appliance Setup Poster, documentation part number E41668, manufacturing numbers 7077726 (sheet 1, pages 1 and 2) and 7081654 (sheet 2, pages 3 and 4).

This document contains the following topics:

About the Oracle Database Appliance Poster X4-2 Setup Poster

The Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Setup Poster consists of 2 tabloid-sized sheets (11 inches by 17 inches) printed on both sides in full color with page numbers at the bottom left corner of each page. The first sheet contains pages one and two and the second sheet contains pages three and four. The upper right corners of pages two, three, and four contain a quick response (QR) code to link to the documentation from a mobile device.

Each page shows of the poster describes a specific Oracle Database Appliance configuration task, identified in the page heading. This document provides a text description of these pages for use with assistive technology tools. The description of each page appears in a separate section of the document with a title that matches the title on poster page. The descriptions contain the text that appears on the poster as well information about any illustrations or other items that need further clarification.


Note:

Because of different authoring and rendering tools, and requirements of assistive technology tools, the PDF copy of the poster published with this document contains slightly different formatting and typography from the printed poster. Additional modifications to the text are also included when needed to avoid confusing assistive technology readers.

Page One: Cabling the Interconnect and Storage for Oracle Database Appliance X4-2

Page 1, "Cabling the Interconnect and Storage for Oracle Database Appliance X4-2," is a guide to the cabling required to connect the server nodes to each other and to the storage units. The page contains illustrations of the system back panels with colored lines indicating the cables and numbered callouts to identify these cables, and tables that name the sockets used by each numbered cable.

Before continuing, be aware of the following conventions that are used on this page of the setup poster:

  • The numbers from the callouts in the illustrations appear in the "Purpose" column of the tables that explain the illustrations.

  • There are three PCIe3 slots, each containing two sockets, on the back of Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 servers. These slots are identified by numbered labels, with the number 1 slot being the one closest to the left-hand edge of server, the number 2 slot next to it, and the number 3 slot closest to the right-hand edge. The tables on this page of the poster use the terms "PCIe slot 1," "PCIe slot 2," and "PCIe slot 3" to identify the PCIe3 slots with labels 1, 2, and 3, respectively.

  • A storage shelf has two IO modules, located one above the other, with sockets at the back of the unit. The tables use the term "top IO Module" and "bottom IO Module" to differentiate these. When your system includes a storage expansion shelf, you have two top IO modules, one in the original shelf and one in the expansion shelf, and, similarly, two bottom IO modules. When reading the instructions, remember that "top" and "bottom" refer to the modules within a shelf, not the shelves themselves.

  • For additional assistance when cabling the system, the supplied cables have colored labels at each end of them that match the color line shown in the illustration and the background color of the socket label. These colors are referred to in the tables. However, because the cables are interchangeable, you do not need to use the color scheme to complete the cabling.

On the left-hand side of the page there is one set of information for systems without a storage expansion shelf, and on the right-hand side, there is another set of information for systems with a storage expansion shelf. The remaining information in this section describes the left-hand side contents first and then describes the right-hand side contents.

The left-hand side of the page contains an illustration showing, from top to bottom, server node 1, server node 0, and a storage shelf. The illustration includes four callouts above the component stack, numbered 5, 6, 1, and 3, reading from left to right, and two callouts below the component stack, numbered 4 and 2, reading from left to right. Below the illustration is a block of text that reads "Connect interconnect and storage to Oracle Database Appliance X4-2." Below this text is a note that reads "The following cables are included as part of the Oracle Database Appliance shipment."

Under this note are two tables, one describes the cabling to attach the storage shelf to the server nodes and the other describes the interconnect cabling between the two server nodes. The following table contains instructions for the storage shelf cabling.

Table 1 Storage Shelf
