For DC Power, connect the product only to earthed power systems that are completely contained within one building.
The following symbols may appear in this book:
Caution - There is a risk of personal injury and equipment damage. Follow the instructions.
Caution - Hot surface. Avoid contact. Surfaces are hot and may cause personal injury if touched.
Caution - Hazardous voltages are present. To reduce the risk of electric shock and danger to personal health, follow the instructions.
Depending on the type of power switch your device has, one of the following symbols may be used:
Caution - Applies AC power to the system.
Caution - Removes AC power from the system.
Caution - The On/Standby switch is in the standby position.
Do not make mechanical or electrical modifications to the equipment Oracle is not responsible for regulatory compliance of a modified Sun product.
Caution - Do not block or cover the openings of your Sun product. Never place a Sun product near a radiator or heat register. Failure to follow these guidelines can cause overheating and affect the reliability of your Sun product.
Product: Oracle Database Appliance
In compliance with the requirements defined in ISO 7779, the workplace-dependent noise level of this product is less than 70 db (A).
Safety status of I/O connections comply to SELV requirements.
Caution - Sun products are designed to work with power systems having a grounded neutral (grounded return for DC-powered products). To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not plug Sun products into any other type of power system. Contact your facilities manager or a qualified electrician if you are not sure what type of power is supplied to your building.
Caution - Not all power cords have the same current ratings. Do not use the power cord provided with your equipment for any other products or use. Household extension cords do not have overload protection and are not meant for use with computer systems. Do not use household extension cords with your Sun product.
The following caution applies only to devices with a Standby power switch:
Caution - The power switch of this product functions as a standby type device only. The power cord serves as the primary disconnect device for the system. Be sure to plug the power cord into a grounded power outlet that is nearby the system and is readily accessible. Do not connect the power cord when the power supply has been removed from the system chassis.
The following caution applies only to devices with multiple power cords:
Caution - For products with multiple power cords, all power cords must be disconnected to completely remove power from the system.
Caution - There is danger of explosion if batteries are mishandled or incorrectly replaced. On systems with replaceable batteries, replace only with the same manufacturer and type or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer per the instructions provided in the product service manual. Do not disassemble batteries or attempt to recharge them outside the system. Do not dispose of batteries in fire. Dispose of batteries properly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and local regulations. Note that on Sun CPU boards, there is a lithium battery molded into the real-time clock. These batteries are not customer replaceable parts.
Caution - For product installed in California, USA: This product may contain a time-of-day battery which may contain perchlorate where special handling may apply. See http://www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate.
Caution - There is a danger of shock or equipment damage if energy storage modules are mishandled or incorrectly replaced. When replacing the energy storage modules, use only replacement modules that have been provided by Oracle, following the instructions provided in the product service manual. Do not disassemble modules or attempt to recharge them outside of the system. Do not dispose of the modules; instead, return them to Oracle in accordance with Oracle procedures for the product.
You must remove the cover of your Sun computer system unit to add cards, memory, or internal storage devices. Be sure to replace the cover before powering on your computer system.
Caution - Do not operate Sun products without the cover in place. Failure to take this precaution may result in personal injury and system damage.
The following or similar rack-mount instructions are included with the installation instructions:
Elevated Operating Ambient – If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
Reduced Air Flow – Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading – Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading – Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Earthing – Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).
Caution - Slide/rail mounted equipment must not be used as a shelf or workspace.
The following warnings apply to Racks and Rack Mounted systems.
Caution - For safety, equipment should always be loaded from the bottom up. That is, install the equipment that will be mounted in the lowest part of the rack first, then the next higher systems, etc.
Caution - To prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation, the anti-tilt bar on the rack must be deployed.
Caution - To prevent extreme operating temperature within the rack insure that the maximum temperature does not exceed the product’s ambient rated temperatures.
Caution - To prevent extreme operating temperatures due to reduced airflow consideration should be made to the amount of air flow that is required for a safe operation of the equipment.
Caution - Take adequate precautions when moving a rack or library that contains rack-installed equipment. The weight of some rack equipment may have altered the rack or library center of gravity and could cause an overbalance/tip condition during a move.
Caution - For tape libraries, ensure that the equipment to be installed in the rack has UL Listing, CSA or C-UL Certification, and is CE marked.
Your Oracle or Sun product may contain Class 1M Laser Transceivers.
Caution - Class 1M laser radiation when open. Do not view directly with optical instruments.
The following caution applies to CD, DVD, and other optical devices.
Caution - Use of controls, adjustments, or the performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
