7x20 Controller Installation Tasks

This section provides enumerated steps for installing the Sun ZFS Storage 7120, 7320 or 7420 controllers into a rack using the rail assembly in the rack mount kit. Note that if your rack mount kit shipped with installation instructions, use those instructions instead.

Observe the following cautions:

Prerequisites

Refer to the Quick Setup poster that shipped with the product or the following sections for an overview of your controller.

Tools and Equipment Needed

To install the system, you need the following tools:

You also need a system console device, such as one of the following:

Installing Mounting Brackets on the Controller Chassis

If the mounting brackets are shipped inside the slide rails, you must remove them before beginning this procedure, as follows.

The following graphic illustrates the procedure for disassembling the 7120/7320 rail kit.

  1. Position a mounting bracket against the chassis so that the slide rail lock is at the front of the chassis, and the keyed openings on the mounting bracket are aligned with the locating pins on the side of the chassis.

  2. With the heads of the four chassis locating pins protruding though the four keyed openings in the mounting bracket, pull the mounting-bracket toward the front of the chassis until the mounting-bracket clip locks into place with an audible click.
  3. Verify that all mounting pins are securely fastened to the chassis.
  4. Repeat to install the remaining mounting bracket on the other side of the chassis.

Installing the Controller Chassis into the Rack Slide Rails

This procedure requires a minimum of two people because of the weight of the chassis. Attempting this procedure alone could result in equipment damage or personal injury. Always load equipment into rack from the bottom up.

  1. If you are using a universal 19-inch cabinet, snap an M6 square cage nut into the top and bottom holes of the location where you will be installing the rail plate as shown. image:Image
  2. Position a slide rail assembly in your rack so that the brackets at each end of the slide rail assembly are on the outside of the front and back rack posts. The following graphic illustrates the rail assembly brackets. image:Image
  3. Attach each slide rail assembly to the rack posts, but do not tighten the screws completely.
  4. From the front of the rack, set the proper width of the rails with the rail-width spacer (1). image:Image
  5. Tighten the screws on the brackets.
  6. Remove the spacer and confirm that the rails are attached tightly to the rack.
  7. If your rack includes an anti-tip foot, extend it from the bottom of the rack. image:Image
  8. Lower the rack stabilization feet if you have not already done so.
  9. Push the slide rails into the slide rail assemblies in the rack as far as possible.
  10. Raise the chassis so that the back ends of the mounting brackets are aligned with the slide rail and insert the chassis into the slide rails, pushing the chassis slowly, until the mounting brackets meet the slide rail stops (~12 in or 30 cm). You will hear an audible click.

Installing the Cable Management Assembly

This procedure is completed from the back of the equipment rack.

  1. Attach the cable management assembly (CMA) rail extension to the left slide rail until the extension locks into place. image:Image
  2. Insert the CMA mounting bracket connector into the right slide rail until the connector locks into place. image:Image
  3. Insert the right CMA slide rail connector (1) into the right slide rail assembly (2) until the connector locks into place. image:Image
  4. Insert the left CMA slide rail connector (1) into the rail extension on the left slide rail assembly (2) until the connector locks into place. image:Image
  5. After you install and route the cables through the assembly, attach the hook and loop straps (1) to secure the cables. Then attach the right and left outer latches to support the assembly. image:Image
