Preface
Safety
NOTE :
!
Warning
If this equipment is used in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may be
impaired.
The SS8460 MUST be grounded before applying power. Unplug the
unit if you think that it has become damaged in any way and before
you move it.
CAUTION ! To maintain proper airflow through the system, operate the
system with the enclosure top cover closed.
• Plug-in modules are part of the enclosure and must only be removed when a
replacement can be immediately installed. Operation of the SS8460 with ANY
modules missing will disrupt the airflow and the components will not receive
sufficient cooling.
• In order to comply with applicable safety, emission, and thermal requirements, the
top cover should remain closed while running.
• The SS8460 system must only be operated from a power supply input voltage
range of 200VAC to 264VAC.
NOTE :
On racked systems, the operational voltage range will be limited to
200-240V nominal to reduce the current within the power
distribution system.
• The equipment is intended to operate with two (2) working power and cooling
modules (PCM). Before removal/replacement of any module, disconnect all
supply power for complete isolation.
• A faulty PCM must be replaced with a fully operational module within 24 hours.
To minimize the risk of electric shock, disconnect the power from
the PCM, either by turning off the switch or by physically removing
the power cable, prior to removing the PCM from the enclosure.
• Do not remove a faulty PCM unless you have a replacement module of the correct
type ready for insertion.
• A safe electrical earth connection must be provided to the power cord.
• Provide a suitable power source with electrical overload protection to meet the
requirements given in the product specifications.
96-30052-001 Rev. A4
DataDirect Networks StorageScaler 8460 User Guide | 5
Preface
• There are no user-replaceable parts inside the PCM. Do not attempt to repair a
PCM. Disassemble of a PCM voids the warranty.
!
Warning
Due to the danger of electrical shock, do not remove covers from the
PCM. Return the module to your supplier for repair.
Recycling of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
At the end of the product’s life, all scrap/ waste electrical and electronic equipment
should be recycled in accordance with local/national regulations applicable to the
handling of hazardous/toxic electrical and electronic waste materials.
NOTE :
Observe all applicable safety precautions, such as weight restrictions,
handling batteries, and lasers, detailed in the preceding paragraphs
when dismantling and disposing of this equipment.
ESD Precautions
CAUTION ! Observe all conventional ESD precautions when handling the
SS8460 plug-in modules and components. Avoid contact with
backplane components and module connectors.
Data Security
• Each enclosure contains up to 84 removable disk drive modules. Disk units are
fragile. Handle them with care, and keep them away from strong magnetic fields.
• Always allow new disks to acclimate to room temperature (for 1 to 2 hours) prior
to installation.
• ALL the supplied plug-in modules and required blank modules must be in place for
the air to flow correctly around the enclosure and also to complete the internal
circuitry.
• If the enclosure is used with modules or blanking plates missing for more than a few
minutes, the enclosure can overheat, causing power failure and data loss. Such use
may also invalidate the warranty.
• If you remove a disk module, replace it immediately. If it is faulty, replace it with a
disk module of the same type and capacity.
• Ensure that all disk drives are removed from the enclosure before attempting to
move the rack installation.
• Do not abandon your backup routines. No system is completely foolproof.

Disk Modules
A disk module comprises a hard disk mounted in a carrier (Figure 10). Each disk bay can
house a single low profile 1.0-inch high, 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch form factor disk drive in its
carrier. A fully loaded enclosure contains 84 disk modules.
The module handle provides the following functions:
• Camming of the module into and out of disk bays
• Positive “spring loading” of the disk/baseplane connector
There are two light pipes mounted in the carrier to transmit light from the two disk status
LEDs, located on the baseboard, to the surface of the carrier handle (Figure 11). Refer to
Section 3.1.3 "Disk Locate and Status LEDs" for more information.
The SS8460 supports a SAS-to-SATA bridge interposer which allows dual-ported access to
SATA disks and remote power control function for the disks. Note that a SATA interposer
card, which is part of the disk drive carrier assembly, is required to run SATA
HDDs.

Front of Chassis
When installing the disk modules:
- Create a more balanced load by evenly distributing the disk modules among the
enclosures
- Always fill the rows from front to back (also see Section 2.6.1 for blank module
requirement)
- Place the disks with similar rotational speeds in the same row
If a mixture of disk technologies will be populated into one enclosure, for optimal cooling,
the best loading order from front to back will be:
- SAS disks, SATA disks, then SSD
- 3.5" HDD, then 2.5" HDD or smaller
96-30052-001 Rev. A4
DataDirect Networks StorageScaler 8460 User Guide | 29
Disk Module Installation
2.6.1
Blank Module Requirement
The SS8460 enclosures require blank modules to complete any partially populated rows.
If two rows are full, the third has seven disk modules, and the last three rows are empty, then:
• The partially populated row #3 must have seven blank modules.
• The completely empty rows #4, #5, and #6 do not need any blank modules.
2.6.2
Procedure
NOTE : When the enclosure is powered on, the cover should only be open for
5 minutes out of every 60 minutes to maintain proper cooling. DDN
recommends that the initial loading of 84 disk (or blank) modules, which is
likely to take more than 5 minutes, be done with the power to the enclosure
off.
Follow these steps to install a disk module:
1.
Squeeze the two release tabs on the front of the enclosure to disengage the latches.
Then slide the enclosure out from the rack and keep pulling until the enclosure locks
and you hear a clicking sound (Figure 33).

Temperature Sensor Locations
The SS8460 enclosure contains 9 temperature sensors located throughout the enclosure:
• Two sensors distributed on the baseboard measuring true ambient inlet air temperature
to the enclosure. Each ambient temperature sensor is connected to an independent I2C
bus for redundancy.
• One sensor is located at the inlet to each PCM.
• One sensor on each I/O module measuring the air temperature behind the expanders
within each I/O module.
• One sensor on each 5V regulator measuring the inlet air temperature to the module.
• One sensor on the LCD module.
Figure 47 shows the position of these temperature sensors within the SS8460. The
temperature sensor threshold settings are shown in Table 7.

Component Failure Recovery
3.2
Component Failure Recovery
The SS8460 contains redundant and hot-swappable components:
• Power and cooling module
• Disk module
• I/O module
• 5V regulator
• LCD module (hot-swappable only)
A single component failure, therefore, will not shut down the system. However, in the
unlikely event of component failure, you can replace the failed component while the system
is running. The replaced component will automatically be returned to service once the
component has been installed and booted up.
The LCD module is not a redundant component, but the enclosure will remain operational if
the LCD module is broken or if it is removed.
NOTE : The SS8460 enclosure is designed to remain operational during a service
action such as replacing a disk module, I/O module, and PCM. During a disk
replacement, the enclosure management firmware will detect a cover-open
condition, sound an alarm, and turn on an amber status LED on the front of
the enclosure. It is recommended that the disks be replaced as soon as
possible when the cover is open during operation. Leaving the top cover
open for an extended period will cause an over-temperature condition
which will sound a continuous alarm. It is recommended that when
hot-swapping any device in the SS8460, this action be completed within
5 minutes to maintain proper cooling.
!
Warning
96-30052-001 Rev. A4
Observe all conventional ESD precautions when handling the SS8460
modules and components. Avoid contact with backplane components
and module connectors.

Component Failure Recovery
3.2.1
Replacing a Power and Cooling Module
If a power supply or fan fails, the Fault LED on the PCM will turn amber.
If a power supply unit or its fan is faulty, you must replace the whole PCM. You must not take
any longer than 5 minutes to replace this module to prevent the enclosure from over-heating.
NOTE : If replacement of a PCM is required, the fans in the other PCM will increase
to maximum speed when the failed module is removed. This is to maintain
proper cooling. Fans will return to normal operation when the replacement
PCM is inserted and powers up.
To replace a PCM:
NOTE : Obtain a replacement module of the same type before removing any faulty
module. Both PCMs must be from the same manufacturer to avoid power
spikes and controller resets when removing a PCM.
1.
Identify the failed PCM with an amber Fault LED.
2.
Turn off the module’s power switch and disconnect the power cable.
3.
Loosen the module’s thumbscrew (Figure 48).
Figure 48. Power and Cooling Module
Lock Bar
Thumbscrew
Lock Bar Tab
4.
Grasp the tab on the lock bar and pull down the lock bar.
5.
Then slide the module out of the bay.
6.
Ensure that the power switch on the new (replacement) module is OFF.
7.
Slide the module into the bay and engage the lock bar to cam the module in place.
8.
Tighten the thumbscrew to secure it.
9.
Connect the power cable.
10. Turn on the power switch. Verify that the AC and DC LEDs are green, indicating that
the module is operating normally.
After a few moments, the SS8460 will detect the replacement PCM. At this time, the alarm
will go off (along with any failure LEDs), and the cooling fans will return to normal speed.

3.2.2
Replacing an I/O Module
NOTE : When an I/O module is removed, the fans (in the PCMs) will increase to
maximum speed. This is to maintain proper cooling inside the enclosure.
Fans will return to normal operation when the replacement I/O module is
inserted and powers up.
To replace an I/O module:
1.
Identify the failed I/O module with an amber Fault LED.
2.
Label the cables as they will need to be connected to the same ports on the replacement
module. This is particularly important if your SS8460 is in a zoned configuration.
3.
Disconnect the I/O cables from the module to be replaced.
4.
Pull and swing open both handles. This will release the cam assembly and the I/O
module will begin to slide out of the bay.
Figure 49. Locking Handles on I/O Module
Pull Here
5.
Continue pulling the module completely out of the enclosure.
6.
Slide in the replacement module and engage the locking handles to cam the module
into place. Ensure that both handles are completely closed.
7.
Reconnect the I/O cables to their original port connectors.
After a few moments, the SS8460 will detect the replacement module. At this time, the
cooling fans will return to normal operation.

Replacing a Disk Module
When a disk is failed by the SS8460, replace it promptly so that the operation and
performance of the system are not affected.
CAUTION : Disk spin down--Damage can occur to a disk if it is removed while still
spinning. DDN recommends that you perform ALL steps of the following
procedure to ensure that the disk has stopped prior to removal.
NOTE : Opening the cover affects the system cooling. Limit service time to
5 minutes. Reminder beeps will occur occasionally. A continuous alarm will
sound after 5 minutes.
To remove a module:
1.
Ensure that the disk to be installed has acclimated to room temperature.
2.
If the SS8460 is running (power on) and being used, ensure that the disk to be replaced
has no I/O activity.
3.
Push in the release tabs on the enclosure front to disengage the locks. Then carefully
pull the enclosure forward out of the rack.
4.
Pull the enclosure out far enough to allow the top cover to be opened. The rails will
“lock” into a service position.
5.
Swing up both cover release handles to disengage the locks.
6.
Lift up to open the cover.
7.
Locate the disk module that has an amber Fault LED.
8.
On that module, press the release latch to release the handle (Figure 50).
Figure 50. Release Latch on Disk Module
