Safety Precautions

This section describes safety precautions you must follow when installing the server into a rack.


Caution

Caution  -  Leveling feet position: When unpacking the rack at the installation site, or when repackaging and moving the rack to a new location, verify that the leveling feet are up before moving the rack.



Caution

Caution  -  Shipping brackets: The rack shipping brackets are not for use for bracing or anchoring the rack during seismic events.



Caution

Caution  -  Stabilize rack: Deploy the anti-tilt bar on the equipment rack before starting an installation.



Caution

Caution  -  Equipment loading: Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that the rack does not become top-heavy and tip over. Deploy your rack anti-tilt bar to prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation.



Caution

Caution  -  Lifting equipment: Oracle Server X8-2 weighs approximately 45 lbs (20.41 kg). Oracle Server X8-2L weighs 73 lbs (33.11 kg). Two people are needed to mount either server into the rack enclosure. image:Figure showing that two people are needed to lift the server.



Caution

Caution  -  Communicate instructions: When performing a two-person procedure, communicate your intentions clearly to the other person before, during, and after each step to minimize confusion.



Caution

Caution  -  Elevated operating ambient temperature: If you install the server in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment might be higher than the room ambient temperature. Install the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified for the server. For server environmental requirements, see Environmental Requirements.



Caution

Caution  -  Reduced airflow: Install the equipment in a rack so that it does not compromise the amount of airflow required for safe operation of the equipment.



Caution

Caution  -  Mechanical loading: Mount the equipment in the rack so that it does not cause a hazardous condition due to uneven mechanical loading.



Caution

Caution  -  Circuit overloading: Consider the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading the circuits might have on over-current protection and supply wiring. Also consider the equipment nameplate power ratings used when you address this concern.



Caution

Caution  -  Reliable earthing: Maintain reliable earthing of rackmounted equipment. Pay attention to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).



Caution

Caution  -  Mounted equipment: Do not use slide-rail-mounted equipment as a shelf or a workspace.
