Powering On a DE3-24 or DE2-24 Disk Shelf

Use the following procedure to power on a DE3-24P, DE3-24C, DE2-24P or DE2-24C disk shelf.

Before You Begin

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

  • Provide a suitable power source with electrical overload protection to meet the power supply input voltage range of 100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz. The disk shelves are compatible with 100-120 VAC or 200-240 VAC sources. The power source must not be overloaded by the total number of disk shelves in the cabinet. At full load, each DE3-24 or DE2-24 draws 707.8W.

  • The power source must provide a reliable earth connection for each disk shelf and the cabinet.

  • Ensure that the power source is easily accessible because the power cord is the main disconnect device for 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.
  3. Supply 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, reseat the faulted module after powering off the disk shelf as described in Powering Off a Disk Shelf. If the module status indicator is not a steady green after module reinsertion and powering on, contact Oracle Customer Service.
