Install the Hardware

For detailed information, see the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Installation Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage.

Connect System Cables

For detailed information, see the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Installation Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage. If you have clustered controllers, connect the cables to both controllers. Do not connect power cables to the controllers or disk shelves until instructed to do so in "Power On and Configure the System." The following illustration shows an Oracle ZFS Storage ZS9-2 high-end model.

Connect Clustered Controllers

If you have clustered controllers, connect the two controllers together. For detailed information, see the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Cabling Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage.

Connect Disk Shelves

The following illustration shows clustered controllers connected to an Oracle Storage Drive Enclosure DE3-24P (left panel), and connected to four DE3-24x disk shelves (right panel). For additional configuration options, see Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Cabling Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage. Do not connect power cables to disk shelves or controllers until instructed to do so in "Power On and Configure the System."


Caution

Caution  -  Use active optical cables (AOCs) to connect Oracle ZFS Storage ZS9-2 external SAS-3 HBAs to Oracle Storage Drive Enclosure DE3-24x disk shelves. Use copper cables to connect disk shelves to each other, and to connect the controller to Oracle Storage Drive Enclosure DE2-24x disk shelves.


image:The image shows how to connect disk shelves to controllers.

Caution

Caution  -  Attaching a SAS cable in the wrong orientation at the controller HBA or the disk shelf I/O Module damages the port connector, and the system will not function properly.


    The following procedure connects an AOC cable to the controller and to an Oracle Storage Drive Enclosure DE3-24P disk shelf. For additional information, see Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Cabling Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage.

  1. Facing the controller HBA, position the cable's release tab to the right (left panel) for the controller end, and to the top for the disk shelf end (#1 in right panel).

  2. Insert the cable connectors into the appropriate ports, aligning the cable connector latches (#2 in right panel) with the port latch receiver holes (#3 in right panel). Ensure the latches engage with the receiver holes.

               a DE3-24P disk shelf.

Power On and Configure the System

Required information: Network host name and port of your serial connection, or network management port DHCP-assigned address. Connect disk shelf power cables, power on disk shelves, connect controller power cables, power on controllers, and configure the system as described in the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Installation Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage.

Perform Initial Configuration

For detailed information, see the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Installation Guide available from https://docs.oracle.com/en/storage, including properly configuring management interfaces and updating controller software.
