Precautions
•
The system is heavy even without disks installed. At least two (2) people will be required
to install the subsystem.
•
The rack cabinet into which this subsystem will be installed must support overcurrent
protection and must not be overloaded by the modules installed. Other requirements,
such as ventilation airflow, rack stabilizing features, electrical earth, and electrical distribution, must comply with the technical specifications listed in the documentation that
came with this product.
•
All subsystems must be mounted with and supported by the rails provided and secured in
position by the four screws in the front side flanges. In no instance is a subsystem to be
mounted by the front side flanges only as this will result in the deforming of the subsystems chassis causing unacceptably high pressures and/or /torques to be applied to
internal components resulting in various failure modes.
•
•
Equipment racks must be grounded.
System Integrators should ensure that any integrated storage solution that includes this
product has been tested and proved to meet government regulations and codes for subjects including safety, fire, and electrical.
•
Make sure you have a soft, clean surface to place your subsystem before working on it.
Placing the system on a rough surface during servicing may damage the chassis finish.
•
Do not remove any module or component item from its anti-static bag until you are ready
to install it. Pick up and hold modules by their edges or canister. Avoid touching PCBs
and connector pins.
•
Observe all standard ESD prevention methods, e.g., wear an anti-static wristband to prevent static electricity from damaging the electric components.
•
The RAID subsystem can be front- or rear-mounted in a variety of 19–inch-wide
(48.26 cm) racks. The slide rail mounting kits are optional.
•
Because hard drives are prone to damage due to shock and vibration during operation, all
equipment should be installed in an equipment rack prior to powering up any subsystems
or DVR's in the rack. If equipment is added, removed, or rearranged in an equipment rack
DVR's and subsystems should be power down prior to this work.
•
All disks should be removed from the subsystem prior to assembly in a rack. Only after all
equipment is installed in a rack should the disks be installed/reinstalled.
•
Hard drives must always be grasped on the drive carrier surfaces and not by the drive surfaces (it is most critical to avoid contact with the printed circuit board or rear connectors). Contacting the hard drive on the connector or PCB may result in ESD damage
which will yield various immediate or latent failures.
•
Drives must not be stacked on top of each other without their protective clamshells. Due
to the magnetic components within drives, stacking them directly on top of each other
can result in erasing the programmable ICs.
•
When replacing components insert them as gently as possible while assuring full engagement. Vibration or shock can damage hard drives in the affected unit or other units in the
rack. Hard drives are very sensitive to shock and vibration, especially while in operation
and should always be handled very carefully.
•
After all equipment is installed in a rack dress the power and data cables such that power
cables are not resting against data (SCSI, IP, RS232) cables.

Drive Tray Installation
The Bosch DVA subsystem is delivered with pre-configured, burned-in drives. The drives are
packed in separate boxes. The drives can be installed in any order.
CAUTION!
•
For expansion or replacement use Bosch drives only. Order DVA-ADTK-050A (drive tray
with mounted hard disk).
•
Handle hard drives with extreme care. Hard drives are very delicate. Dropping a drive
onto a hard surface (even from a short distance) and hitting or touching the circuits on
the drives with your tools may cause damage to the drives.
•
•
•
Insert drive trays as gently as possible.
Observe all ESD prevention methods when installing drives.
Only use screws supplied with the drive canisters. Longer screws may damage the drive.
To install a drive tray:
1.
Turn the key-lock to the unlocked position. The key-lock is unlocked if the groove on its
face is in a horizontal orientation.(See Figure 6.1)
Fig. 6.1 Drive Canister Front View
2.
Open the front flap on the drive tray by pushing the button on the front of the drive tray.
The button is easy to access. (See Figure 6.2)
Fig. 6.2 Opening Drive Tray Front Flap
3.
Line the drive tray up with the slot in which you wish to insert it. Make sure that it is resting on the rails inside the enclosure. Once the drive tray is lined up with the slot, gently
slide it in. This action should be done smoothly and gently.
4.
Close the front flap on the drive tray. Make sure the front flap is closed properly to
ensure that the SATA connector at the back of the drive tray is firmly connected to the
corresponding connector on the mid-plane board. If the front flap is not closed properly,
then the connection between the HDD and the subsystem will not be secure. To lock the
flap in place, turn the key-lock until the groove on its face is in a vertical orientation. (See
Figure 6.3)

Configuring the Host Computer via a Network
The first time you use the subsystem you have to set up your computer to access the subsystem.
To set up the computer:
1.
Attach a network cable from the DVA’s Ethernet port to a network.
or
Connect the computer with the subsystems’s Ethernet port via a cross-over cable.
2.
Access any computer on the network.
NOTICE!
i
If you do not use a cross over cable and connect the unit to a network, your network’s subnet
mask may not allow you to access this IP address without some re-configuration.
3.
To access the subsystem simply access a shell or a DOS prompt on your host computer,
and enter the following command:
Windows
route add 10.11.12.13 <workstation IP number>
mask 255.255.255.255
This procedure allows a connection to the subsystem even if your computer has different
network settings.
