Observe the following cautions when installing any Sun ZFS Storage 7x20 controller or cabinet.
Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that it will not become top-heavy and tip over. Deploy the anti-tip bar to the prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation.
Ensure that the temperature in the rack does not exceed the controller's maximum ambient rated temperatures. Consider the total airflow requirements of all equipment installed in the rack to ensure that the equipment is operated within its specified temperature range.
For best results, only qualified Oracle service personnel should perform cluster installation and configuration. Contact Oracle Service for assistance.

For controller installation, check that your rack is compatible with the slide rail and cable management assembly options as follows:
The structure is a four-post rack with mounting at both front and back. Two-post racks are not compatible.
The horizontal opening and unit vertical pitch conforms to ANSI/EIA 310-D-1992 or IEC 60927 standards.
The distance between the front and back mounting planes is between 24 in and 36 in (610 mm to 915 mm).
The distance to the front cabinet door, providing clearance depth in front of the front mounting plane, is at least 1 in (25.4 mm).
The distance to the back cabinet door, providing clearance depth behind the front mounting plane, is at least 31.5 in (800 mm) with the cable management assembly, or 27.5 in (700 mm) without the cable management assembly.
The distance between structural supports and cable troughs, providing clearance width between the front and back mounting planes, is at least 18 in (456 mm).
For cabinet installation, you will need a total distance of at least 15 ft/4.5 m for safe maneuvering when you roll the cabinet off the shipping pallet.
