Precautions

Observe the following cautions when installing the Oracle Storage Drive Enclosure DE2-24P into a rack using the supplied rail kit. Note that if your rail kit shipped with installation instructions, use those instructions instead.

Prerequisites

Refer to the following section for an overview of your disk shelf.

Tools and Equipment Needed

To install the shelf, you need the following tools:

Use one of the following racks for the disk shelf:

Position the rack where the shelf is to be installed adjacent to the rack where the controller is installed, if separate. Stabilize the cabinet and lock the casters. To facilitate access, remove doors from cabinets.

Tasks

DE2 24P Tasks

Installing the Disk Shelf into the Rack Slide Rails

  1. The Oracle Storage Drive Enclosure DE2-24P requires two standard mounting units (2RU) of vertical space in the cabinet. Starting at the bottom of the cabinet, locate the appropriate rack unit (RU) height, which is six rack holes. Install disk shelves below controllers to prevent rack from tipping.
  2. Install the rails into the cabinet.

    For an unthreaded universal 19-inch or Sun Rack II cabinet:

    a) Position the front rail location pegs fully inside the appropriate holes in the front of the rack. The rail flange must be inside of the cabinet flange, and the rail label facing the inside of the cabinet.

    b) Insert and loosely tighten one screw through the front of the rack and into the top hole in the rails.

    c) Adjust the rail lengths to fit, and position the rear rail location pegs in the corresponding rear rack holes.

    d) Insert and loosely tighten one screw through the back of the rack and into the back of the rails.

    For a threaded universal 19-inch cabinet:

    a) Use the T20 Torx driver to remove the rail location pegs from the front and rear of the rails.

    b) Use the supplied wrench to insert two pins into each end of the rails, in the same location where the location pegs were removed.

    c) Position the front of the rails inside the cabinet, with the rail flange inside of the cabinet flange, and the rail label facing the inside of the cabinet. The pins should be fully located within the rack holes.

    d) Insert and loosely tighten one screw through the front of the rack and into the top hole in the rails.

    e) Adjust the rail lengths to fit, and locate the rear pins inside the corresponding rear rack holes.

    f) Insert and loosely tighten one screw through the back of the rack and into the back of the rails. image:Image

  3. Using a mechanical lift or two people, one at each side of the disk shelf, carefully lift and rest the shelf on the bottom ledge of the left and right rails. Do not lift using the power supply with fan module handles. image:Image
  4. Carefully slide the shelf into the rails until it is fully seated within the cabinet. Ensure that the shelf is fully seated within the rails. If removing the shelf to reseat it, support it at all times.
  5. Remove the disk shelf approximately 7.87 in. (200 mm).
  6. Tighten all four screws that were previously inserted and loosely tightened in the rails.
  7. Fully insert the disk shelf again, and check that the shelf is still fully seated within the rails.
  8. Remove the front side caps, install one screw into each front side, and replace the caps.
  9. Install one long patchlock screw per rail to secure the rear of the shelf to the rear of the rack. image:Image
  10. Connect and apply power to the disk shelf as described in the next section.

Powering On the Disk Shelf

Ensure you have met the following electrical safety measures before applying power to the disk shelf:

  1. Plug a power cord into each power supply with fan module.

  2. Plug the other end of the power cords into the external power source for the cabinet.Note: To guarantee redundancy, power cords must be connected to two separate and independent power sources. image:Image

  3. Apply power to the external power source.

  4. Place the power supply on/off switches to the "I" on position.

  5. Turn on the cabinet circuit breakers, if applicable.

  6. After the disk shelf powers on, which could take several minutes, ensure that the system power indicator on the front of the disk shelf is lit a steady green, and that each power supply with fan module status indicator on the rear is lit a steady green. If not, power off the disk shelf as described in the next section and reseat the faulted module. If the module status indicator is not a steady green after module reinsertion, contact Oracle Customer Service. image:Image

  7. Perform the software setup tasks as described in the storage controller installation guide.

Powering Off the Disk Shelf

Most disk shelf components are hot-swappable; you do not need to remove power when replacing them. Do not remove a component if you do not have an immediate replacement. The disk shelf must not be operated without all components in place.

Powering off or removing all SAS chains from a disk shelf will cause the controller(s) to panic to prevent data loss, unless the shelf is part of an NSPF (no single point of failure) data pool. To avoid this, shut down the controller(s) before decommissioning the shelf. For details on NSPF profiles, see Profile Configuration.

  1. Stop all input and output to and from the disk shelf.

  2. Wait approximately two minutes until all disk activity indicators have stopped flashing.

  3. Place the power supply on/off switches to the "O" off position.

  4. Disconnect the power cords from the external power source for the cabinet.Note: All power cords must be disconnected to completely remove power from the disk shelf.
