SGI Confidential 8 - 2 Installation Overview The approximate minimum time to complete this procedure is 5 hours for a two-shelf system. Add approximately 30 minutes for each additional shelf. This time does not include time required to deliver and unload the system, nor does it include the 24 hours acclimation time recommended for the drives in the install environment. Determine if access to the SGI COPAN service FTP site will be allowed. If not, a USB Flash drive must be available to complete the procedure, if a software/firmware upgrade is required on the new components. During shipping, cables, connectors and screws may move or become lose. A thorough check of the system is recommended to: Verify all connectors are seated properly Verify that the routing of cables are in their proper location Verify that screws are not loose. Allow 24 hours for the equip acclimate prior to powering it on. The uncrate everything and place the rack. Assemble the PSM, network switch, PSSM, and canister assemblies in the shelves. Finish cabling then follow the power-on procedure.
SGI Confidential 8 - 3 Rack and Auxiliary Crates
SGI Confidential 8 - 4 Rack Placement There are no rack casters Use the strong arm method to place rack in final position Unscrew rack from palate
SGI Confidential 8 - 5 Auxiliary Crate The auxiliary crate contains the PSM, PSSM, SGI panel, network switch, and all the canister assemblies. The canisters will be labeled and MUST be installed in the correct shelves slot. Note: There may be miscellaneous components that have to be assembled so be sure to check all the boxes thoroughly.
SGI Confidential 8 - 6 Ground the Cabinet (1 of 2) At the rear of the cabinet, verify that both AC power circuit breakers, AC0 and AC1, are in the OFF, or down position on the AC Power bay assembly. Verify that the 48 VDC push button switches on the rear of each shelf in the system is in the OFF, or fully extended position. Pass the AC plugs either through the hole at the bottom rear of the cabinet and the floor tile below it, or through the hole at the top rear of the cabinet, depending on where the customer’s AC power receptacles are located. Tie-wrap the AC cords in place inside the rear of the cabinet as necessary. power receptacle. Verify that the breakers are turned off. Using a voltmeter, verify there is no power at the customer’s AC receptacle. Also perform a resistance check to verify that the receptacles are properly grounded. Unplug the shelves and unplug the PSM server from the power bay Turn on the circuit breaker and verify that the correct AC voltage is now present at the AC receptacle's. Measure all three phases to each other. The requirement is between 200 VAC and 240 VAC phase to phase (or phase to neutral for Europe).
SGI Confidential 8 - 7 Ground the Cabinet (2 of 2) Turn off the circuit breakers and insert the AC0 plug (and AC1 plug, if applicable) into the AC receptacle. Using the voltmeter, perform a resistance check to verify that the cabinet, and each shelf in the cabinet, is now connected to the facility ground. Using the customer’s nomenclature, place a label next to the AC0 main power circuit breaker and AC1 main power circuit breaker in the cabinet, identifying the customer Wall panel circuit breaker's involved. The customer may also wish to label the circuit Breaker wall panel itself to indicate which breaker's are supplying power to the cabinet. Plug the PSM server and KVM cords back in.
SGI Confidential 8 - 8 Install the 48VDC Power Supplies From the front of the cabinet directly below the KVM, remove the power bay cosmetic grill from the cabinet by removing the four screws that hold it in place. Make sure to set them aside, as they will be needed when the grill is being re-installed. Check each power supply’s serial number against the supplied component map for its slot location. Note that the number of power supplies and configuration depends on the number of shelves and the types of drives installed in the system. Re-install the power bay cosmetic grill.
SGI Confidential 8 - 9 Install the PSM and Network Switch (1 of 2) Locate the network switch/PSM enclosure, the PSM server, the front network switch/PSM cover and the rear network switch/PSM cover. Using a ladder positioned at the back of the cabinet, remove the four screws from the top rear of the cabinet. Set the screws aside. Lift the network switch enclosure up and place it on top of the cabinet with the network ports facing the rear of the cabinet. Secure with the four screws removed from the cabinet.
SGI Confidential 8 - 10 Install the PSM and Network Switch (2 of 2) Pull the network cables up through the network cable holes in the top of the cabinet. And connect the network cables to the proper network switch ports, according to the labels on the cables. Lift the PSM server to the top of the cabinet. Pull the PSM server cables through the cable holes in the top of the cabinet and connect all cables to the PSM server. Attach the front and rear switch enclosure covers using the thumbscrews.
SGI Confidential 8 - 11 Install the PSSM and SGI Systems Banner Locate the PSSM and the SGI COPAN banner. Remove the six mounting screws from the top front of the cabinet. Install the banner using the six screws removed from the cabinet. Connect the USB cable is USB1 on the PSSM
SGI Confidential 8 - 12 Install the Canister Assemblies Using the supplied component map, locate and identify the shipping container that holds the eight canister assemblies for Shelf 0 (indicated by “SE0” on the component map). Open the shipping container. Using the label attached to each canister, locate the canister assembly for Slot 0 of Shelf 0. Remove that canister assembly from its packaging. Insert the Canister into Slot 0 of Shelf 0. Press the black safety button on the front of the canister assembly when inserting the canister into its slot to secure it into place and mate it with the mid-plane. The following graphic shows the installation of a Canister into a shelf using two hands. Repeat this for all canisters and shelves.
SGI Confidential 8 - 13 Facility Network Connection Locate the Ethernet cable's installed by the customer. Run the cable up through the rear left side hole in the cabinet bottom. If the customer is dropping cables down from the ceiling, drop the Ethernet connection cable through the hole in the top rear left side of the cabinet. Connect the customer Ethernet cable to PSM-EXT. This is used to connect remotely via Ethernet to the PSM server. This allows the customer to access the PSM GUI (Service GUI) remotely. The PSM server is configured to obtain its IP address via DHCP. If a static IP address is required, change the /etc/rc.conf.d/ifconfig_eth0 file from DHCP to a static IP address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx). If the customer requires a different hostname for the PSM server, it can be changed in the /etc/rc.conf.d/hostname file.
SGI Confidential 8 - 14 Facility Fibre Channel Connection Locate the fibre cables installed by the customer. Verify that they have been labeled with the customer nomenclature. Run the cables up through the rear left side hole in the cabinet bottom. If the customer is dropping the cables down from the ceiling, route the fibre cables Down through the hole in the top, rear left side of the cabinet. Refer to the diagram, titled 400M Cabinet Fibre Channel Cabling, for fibre channel connections to the I/O Panel.
