• “System Documentation” on page 1-8
• “Safety Notices” on page 1-11
Site Planning Overview
Site planning for fault-tolerant systems includes:
• Purchasing an appropriate cabinet and monitor
If you do not purchase a monitor from Stratus, provide a monitor that meets the
system’s requirements.
NOTES
1. A monitor, keyboard, and mouse are required to
install ftServer System Software (ftSSS).
2. You cannot use the monitor, keyboard, and mouse
after you install ESX Server and ftSSS, Therefore,
plan to provide a management PC to which you can
connect the system over a serial connection.
If you do not purchase a cabinet from Stratus, provide a cabinet that meets the
system’s requirements.
Site Planning for ftServer 2510, 4410, and 6210 Systems
1-1
Site Planning Overview
• Electrical power planning
Provide electrical power sources that meet the requirements of the system and
optional components, optionally including the purchase of a qualified
uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
• Space planning
Provide adequate space for the system or cabinet and for a desk or table to
accommodate components outside a cabinet. Also provide enough space for
servicing the systems and components.
Provide an environment that meets the system's requirements for ambient
temperature and air quality.
• Communications line planning
Provide sufficient network and analog telephone lines and plan the location of the
system and external components to accommodate the lengths of the connecting
cables.
For ESX Server systems, provide a computer to act as a management PC. Also
provide a serial cable to connect the management PC to the ftServer system, or
provide some other way to connect to the ftServer system through a serial
connection. After you install the operating system and ftSSS, you cannot use a
monitor, mouse, and keyboard directly attached to the system.
• Rack space planning
Ensure that the power distribution units (PDUs) supply sufficient power to the
components you have purchased and that you have sufficient space available in
an appropriate cabinet.
Use the “Site Planning Checklist” on page 1-4 to track your site preparation progress.
For information about obtaining documents related to your ftServer system, see
“System Documentation” on page 1-8.
During the site planning and preparation processes, work closely with your facilities
group or contractor to determine space, power, and environmental requirements. Enlist
their help to provide a suitable location with sufficient alternating current (AC) power,
heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) capabilities, and network and
telephone connections.
If your system is covered by a service agreement and you need help with site planning,
contact the Stratus Customer Assistance Center (CAC) or your authorized Stratus
service representative. If you have a contract with the CAC or your authorized Stratus
service representative to install the system, contact them after you have prepared the

installation site and moved the system to the site. For more information about the CAC,
see Getting Help in the Preface or the http://www.stratus.com/support/cac/ Web site.
See Appendix A, “System Specifications” for the specifications of the base ftServer
systems and of PDUs. See the Stratus ftServer Systems: Peripherals Site
Planning Guide (R582) for specifications of other components.
Site Planning for Fault-Tolerant Systems
Consider the following specific fault-tolerant features of ftServer systems for site
planning:
• Lockstep technology means that the systems contain redundant hardware. The
systems contain two enclosures, each containing a full computing environment that
consists of a CPU element and an I/O element.
If a component in a CPU element malfunctions, the corresponding CPU element in
the other enclosure, which is processing the same information in lockstep,
continues processing without interruption. If a component in the I/O element
malfunctions, the system fails operation over to the corresponding element in the
other enclosure and continues to operate normally. The only consequences are
that the system is less fault tolerant, and any I/O throughput distributed between
the enclosures may be reduced. To restore full fault tolerance, an enclosure can be
replaced without taking the system offline.
• ftServer systems can connect to the ActiveService Network (ASN).
Connecting a system to the ASN allows the CAC or your authorized Stratus service
representative to remotely diagnose, troubleshoot, and resolve problems online.
To enable connectivity to the ASN, an ASN modem can be attached directly to the
system. In Windows and Linux systems, two partnered Virtual Technician Modules
(VTMs), if installed in the system, manage the modem. The VTMs can also connect
to the ASN through their Ethernet ports, if the network to which they are attached
has Internet access. Systems without modems or VTMs can connect to the ASN
through an Internet connection.
NOTE
ftSSS for VMware Infrastructure does not support VTMs.
Systems that connect to the ASN using partnered VTMs provide the highest level
of availability. VTMs provide ASN connectivity even when the operating system is
not operational. VTMs also allow internal administrators to remotely service the
system over a telephone line or IP network, regardless of the state of the operating
system.
Site Planning for ftServer 2510, 4410, and 6210 Systems
1-3
Site Planning Checklist
If VTMs are not present, system software manages the modems and ASN
connectivity is only possible if the operating system is operational.
Site Planning Checklist
Referring to the information in this document, answer the following questions:
Planning for ASN Connectivity
❏ Will your system connect to the ASN? If so, will it connect over an ASN modem or
the Internet?
❏ If your system will use the Internet to connect to the ASN, do you have an Internet
connection available?
❏ If your system will use an ASN modem, do you have an external analog telephone
line available for the ASN modem?
NOTE
A dedicated phone line provides the most reliable service.
ASN calls routed through a PBX may be slow due to load
on the PBX, or may not complete successfully due to
disconnections. If you must use a PBX, do not route the
telephone extension through a switchboard; instead,
provide a direct-dial analog number.
❏ Do you have an additional telephone connection and telephone near the operator’s
station for voice communications when calling for support?
Planning for Network Connectivity
❏ The system contains four embedded 10/100/1000 megabits-per-second (Mbps)
Ethernet ports. Will your system additionally include any of the following PCI
adapters for network communications? If so, in Table 1-1, indicate the total number
of ports, and plan network connections for all Ethernet ports you will use.
Table 1-1. Ethernet PCI Adapters
Adapter
Total Number of Ports
U574F-LC Dual-Port Fiber Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
U575F Dual-Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
NOTES
1. The four embedded physical adapters provide the
basic requirements for VMware ESX Server: two
1-4
Stratus ftServer 2510, 4410, and 6210 Systems: Site Planning Guide (R627)
Site Planning Checklist
logical controllers, one for the service console and the
other for the virtual machines.
2. Because a VMware ESX Server system contains at
least one pair of host bus adapters (HBAs), it supports
a maximum of two more pairs of Ethernet adapters.
Planning for Optional Components
❏ Will your system connect to external storage enclosures? If so, the system requires
a pair of HBAs, which are provided when you order the storage enclosure. If you
order the enclosure at the same time you order the system, the required HBAs are
installed at the factory. See the Stratus ftServer Systems: Peripherals Site
Planning Guide (R582) for descriptions of the storage enclosures provided by
Stratus and the names of the PCI adapters required for supported storage
enclosures.
NOTES
1. An ftServer system that runs ESX Server boots from
a logical unit number (LUN) on an external storage
system and so requires at least one pair of HBAs and
at least one ftScalable™ Storage system or EMC®
CLARiiON® or Symmetrix® storage system.
2. An ftServer system that runs the Windows operating
system supports ftScalable Storage systems and
EMC CLARiiON and Symmetrix storage systems.
3. An ftServer system that runs the Linux operating
system supports ftScalable Storage systems, EMC
CLARiiON and Symmetrix storage systems, and HP
Storage Works Enterprise Virtual Arrays (EVAs).
❏ If your system will connect to external storage enclosures, will it be through a
storage area network (SAN)? If so, do you have a minimum of two switches that
can accommodate the cables from the pairs of HBAs in the ftServer system?
NOTES
1. Stratus has successfully tested the Brocade® 200E
Fibre Channel (FC) switch. Other model switches
may also be compatible as long as they can be
configured in the same manner as the Brocade 200E
switch.
2. You must connect ESX Server systems to SAN
storage, and therefore, must provide a pair of Fibre
Channel switches.

Site Planning Checklist
❏ Will you supply your own monitor or will Stratus supply the monitor, keyboard, and
mouse? Is the monitor rack-mountable or do you need to provide a table or desk?
❏ Will your Windows or Linux system include any tape-drive enclosures? The
tape-drive enclosure supplied with your system is rack-mountable. If you order the
tape drive at the same time you order the system, the required PCI adapter is
installed in the system. See the Stratus ftServer Systems: Peripherals Site
Planning Guide (R582) for descriptions of the enclosures and the names of the
required PCI adapters.
NOTE
ftSSS for VMware Infrastructure does not support tape
drives.
Planning AC Power
❏ Will you provide power to both sides of the system through a pair of PDUs?
❏ Will you protect the system power with a UPS?
❏ What optional components will you use?
❏ What are the AC power requirements of your system, including all optional
components?
❏ What are the lengths and types of the power cords that are provided for the PDUs
or system, and optional components?
❏ What type of AC receptacles do you need to provide?
❏ Is the AC power service wired properly?
Planning Space for Your System
❏ Will your system and its external components fit where you plan to place them?
❏ If you are rack-mounting the system, what is the height of the cabinet you will use
and what is the total height of the systems and components that will be installed in
the cabinet? Will the items fit into the cabinet? What components will be located
outside the cabinet?
❏ What are the lengths and types of the interface and communications cables that
will connect to your system?
❏ Have you created a sketch of how you plan to arrange the system at the installation
site? Consider the available cable lengths, the placement of external devices, and
the location of network and voice communication connections.
On the sketch, show the following:
• Location of the system and its external components
• Power cords, and telephone and interface cables

Redundant Power Sources
ftServer systems require at least two separate and independent AC power
sources—an A-side power source and a B-side power source—that provide power to
the system’s power receptacles, labeled A and B, respectively. Either source must be
capable of continuing to provide power if power to the other source is lost.
The A-side power source provides power to one side of each system and storage
enclosure, as well as to components that do not require two sources of power, such as
tape-drive enclosures and a monitor. If you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS),
the UPS is, in these standard, documented, configurations, the A-side power source.
The B-side power source provides power to the other side of each system and storage
enclosure.
The wattage required from the A-side power source will always be equal to or greater
than the wattage required from the B-side power source.
Electrical Power Planning

AC Power and HVAC Service Requirements
AC Power and HVAC Service Requirements
From the Stratus ftServer Systems: Peripherals Site Planning Guide (R582), obtain the
nominal input line voltage (volts AC) and frequency (Hz) required for optional,
AC-powered components. In general, provide 100–240 VAC at 50 or 60 Hz for optional
components. PDUs require 200–240 VAC at 50 or 60 Hz.
For detailed information about the plug types and lengths of the power cords provided
with the system, see “Power Cord Summary” on page 2-15.
The power service must be properly wired and grounded according to local standards
and regulations. See Appendix B, “Electrical Circuit and Wiring Information” for more
information.
NOTE
Circuit breakers must provide a protective earth ground
current at a maximum of 3.5 milliamperes (mA) for each
AC power cord.
Use the following worksheets to determine AC power requirements for the site.
• In Table 2-1, determine the power requirements at the A-side power source.
• In Table 2-2, determine the power requirements at the B-side power source.
• In Table 2-3, determine the power requirements for components outside of the
cabinet. These components can share a power source with the A-side or B-side
components.
• In Table 2-4, determine the related HVAC requirements.
To determine AC power requirements
Provide information in Tables 2-1, 2-2, and 2-3 as follows:
1. In the Quantity column, write the number of each type of component.
2. Multiply the entry in the Quantity column by the number in the Watts column, and
enter the result in the Watts Subtotal column.
3. Add the values in the Watts Subtotal column, and enter the sum on the bottom line.
This value indicates the maximum power requirement for each power source.

AC Power and HVAC Service Requirements
Connecting a System Directly to Separate AC Sources
If you do not connect your ftServer system or PDUs to a UPS, provide two AC power
sources that are as electrically independent of each other as the installation site allows.
At a minimum, the two power sources must be powered by separate circuit breakers
(maximum of 20A) to AC power and, if possible, be independent of each other beyond
that level. The more electrical separation between the two power sources, the less
likely they will both fail at the same time. Due to redundancy in ftServer systems, power
to either side of the system keeps the system in operation, although the system is no
longer fault-tolerant with regard to power.
Figure 2-1 shows how to connect rack-mounted ftServer 2510, 4410, and 6210
systems directly to two separate AC power sources, Figure 2-2 shows how to connect
a pedestal system directly to two separate power sources, and Figure 2-3 shows how
to connect PDUs directly to two separate power sources.

Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer Systems
Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer Systems
Stratus does not sell or service UPS units. However, Stratus has qualified UPS models
for use with ftServer 2510, 4410, and 6210 systems.
Use Table 2-1 to determine the number of watts the A-side of your system requires and
use Table 2-9, 2-10, or 2-11 to select a UPS model.
NOTES
1. Generally, system fault tolerance could be at risk if
you use a UPS with systems that run ftSSS for
VMware Infrastructure or ftSSS for the Linux
operating system. These versions of ftSSS do not
include the logic to decide whether the operating
system should shut down in response to certain
signals from the UPS, and the UPS may
unnecessarily shut down the system.
If you have a situation that requires the use of a UPS
(for example, if you do not have two separate power
sources at the installation site), use the tables in this
section to select an appropriate UPS, do not use UPS
signaling, and contact the CAC or your authorized
Stratus service representative for additional
assistance.
2. Use of a UPS with systems that run ftSSS for VMware
Infrastructure is additionally restricted because USB
and serial communications are not available. USB is
disabled and no serial ports are available. If you need
assistance, contact the CAC or your authorized
Stratus service representative.
3. Site planning information for the UPS in this
document is of a general nature only. Do not rely
exclusively on the UPS information in this document.
Contact APC at http://www.apcc.com for detailed
UPS specifications, documentation, and ordering
information.

Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer Systems
Communicating with a UPS over a Network
Use the following additional tools to enable a UPS and an ftServer system that runs the
Windows operating system to communicate over the network:
• APC Network Management Card EX (APC part number AP9617)
An APC Network Management Card EX is a standard component of the Symmetra
UPS, but you must purchase the network card for the APC Smart-UPS.
• APC PowerChute® Network Shutdown for the ftServer system
When you install your ftServer system, download PowerChute Network Shutdown
from APC, and install and configure the tool on the system, as described in the
Stratus ftServer System Software: Installation and Configuration for Windows
Systems (R002W). PowerChute Network Shutdown monitors the UPS for an
imminent power loss, and initiates a shutdown of the system before power is lost.
Connecting Power to Systems, PDUs, and a UPS
When you plan for PDUs and a UPS, note the following:
• Only the top PDU is connected to the UPS.
• The bottom PDU is connected directly to an AC power main.
• The UPS can be connected to the same AC power main that the bottom PDU is
connected to, or the UPS can be connected to another AC power main.
Figure 2-4 shows how to connect rack-mounted systems to PDUs and the PDUs to
UPS units.

WARNING
Incorrect grounding can cause severe personal injury
and extensive equipment damage.
The ftServer system obtains an earth reference ground over independent ground
connections to the cabinet frame. Ensure that a high-integrity safety-ground conductor
is installed as part of the wiring system.

For information about planning sufficient space for your ftServer system, see:
• “Room Requirements” on page 3-1
• “Planning for Cables” on page 3-3
Room Requirements
To ensure that the installation site provides a properly equipped, cooled, and sized
environment, make sure that the site:
• Provides clearances for air circulation, opening cabinet doors, removing cabinet
panels, and servicing the system from the front and rear.
Locate the front and rear of the system at least 2.5 feet (ft) (0.76 meters (m)) away
from walls and other obstructions.
• Maintains reasonable temperature and humidity levels and has a thermometer and
humidistat to monitor room temperature and humidity.
See Chapter 2, “Electrical Power Planning” for detailed information about HVAC
planning.
• Is as free of dust as possible, meeting, at a minimum, ISO 14644-1 class 8
standards for a clean-room environment.
Dust buildup in the system can impede air circulation and heat transfer, causing
components to become less reliable as the ambient temperature rises.
Fans clogged by dust fail to expel hot air, causing circuit boards to overheat and
fail.
Dust on circuit boards raises the temperature, thus reducing the component's
mean time between failure (MTBF).
Dust circulating in the room increases the risk of fire within the room by providing
potential combustible material within the environment.
Dust contamination on tape devices causes mis-reads and -writes, leading to
failure of attempts to back up and restore data.
Space Planning
3-1
Room Requirements
• Has sufficient floor space for external components.
• Provides a table or desktop for external devices such as a telephone, external
monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and for ESX Server systems, a management PC.
For ESX Server systems, provide a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to install
VMware Infrastructure and ftSSS for VMware Infrastructure. For access to the
ftServer system after you install the operating system and ftSSS, arrange for a
serial connection from a management PC to the ftServer system
Each of these devices requires table or rack space. You cannot place a peripheral
component on top of a system cabinet.
• Allows the system and peripheral devices to be placed within the room so that
power cords and communications cables will reach their respective power
receptacles, telephone jacks, and other connection points.
• Provides communications cable connectors or patch panels as needed.
• Provides two electrically separate grounded AC wall outlets, within reach of the
power cords from the system or PDUs, and, if used, UPS units. Detachable power
cords are 12 ft. (3.65m). If the power cord must be hard-wired, consult an
electrician to plan the length of the power cord.
• Provides grounded AC wall outlets for external components that do not connect to
a PDU.
• Provides cutouts in the floor for routing cables, if the site has an elevated floor.
• Contains space for future expansion.
!
CAUTION
Do not place the system in an area of high electrostatic
discharge. Static electricity may damage components.
Do not locate components near transformers or other
electromagnetic devices.

Ethernet Cables
You will need Ethernet cables for the following connections:
• From two or four embedded Ethernet ports on the system and Ethernet ports on
U574F-LC or U575F Ethernet adapters to network connection points
NOTE
Two Ethernet ports are typically paired and teamed in
software for fault tolerance. Each member of the pair
requires an Ethernet cable.
• From each ftScalable Storage RAID controller tray, if present, to a network
connection point, for Web management of ftScalable Storage systems
• From a management PC to a network connection point, for Web management of
ftScalable Storage systems
The same network must provide access to the RAID controllers on the
ftScalable Storage RAID controller tray from the PC.

Site Planning for Systems in an ftGateway Group
If no modem is installed, a second telephone line is not necessary. A modem is not
necessary in the following situations:
• If your system will connect to a network with Internet access, you may choose to
use the Internet to send alarms to the ASN and allow the CAC or your authorized
Stratus service representative to connect to your system over the Internet for
troubleshooting.
• If you implement ftGateway groups, only one system in the group requires a
modem. See “Site Planning for Systems in an ftGateway Group” for more
information.
NOTE
ftSSS for VMware Infrastructure does not support VTMs
or ftGateway groups.
Site Planning for Systems in an ftGateway Group
NOTE
ftSSS for VMware Infrastructure does not support
ftGateway groups.
Multiple ftServer systems at a site can share a single telephone connection to the ASN
by implementing an ftGateway group. Unless VTMs are installed in each system, the
systems in the group must be connected to a single physical Ethernet subnetwork.
One system acts as a gateway for ASN connectivity. This gateway system requires an
analog telephone line that connects to the modem. Other systems in the ftGateway
group, called gateway slaves, connect to the gateway system over the network. In this
case, Ethernet connections are required for each system, but only two analog
telephone lines for each ftGateway group are required.
Members of an ftGateway group:
• Are limited to a maximum of 20 ftServer systems.
• Are limited to systems running the Windows or Linux operating system
NOTE
You cannot mix systems that run the Linux operating
system and systems that run the Windows operating
system in the same ftGateway group.
Communications Line Planning
4-9
Site Planning for Systems in an ftGateway Group
• Must connect to the same subnetwork through system Ethernet ports, ports of
Ethernet adapters, or VTMs. An ftGateway group can consist of one of the
following:
– Slave systems that run the Windows operating system with no remote
management adapter in a group with an ftGateway system that has VTMs
NOTE
Systems that run the Linux operating system and that are
members of an ftGateway group must contain VTMs.
– Slave systems that have VTMs in a group with an ftGateway system that has
VTMs
Using VTMs provides the highest level of manageability by allowing the system to
be serviced even when the operating system is not operational.
NOTES
1. You cannot mix VTMs and ftServer Access Adapters
in the same ftGateway group. ftServer Access
Adapters are system management adapters used in
earlier models of ftServer systems.
2. Make sure that only layer-1 and layer-2 devices
separate the gateway and slave systems. During a
connection, the gateway system assigns the slave
system a temporary IP address from an IP address
range reserved by Stratus and uses that address for
all traffic.

For information about planning a rack configuration, see:
• “Using PDUs” on page 5-1
• “Determining PDU Requirements” on page 5-2
• “Sample PDU Usage Calculation” on page 5-4
Using PDUs
ftServer systems have two power receptacles. Correspondingly, two power distribution
units (PDUs) provide power to the receptacles.
Use of PDUs is optional unless you have a support agreement with Stratus. If you do
have a support agreement with Stratus, use pairs of PDUs to provide AC power to
systems and components in a cabinet if six or more power cords would otherwise
exit from the cabinet.
The A-side (top) PDU provides power to:
• The A-side of each system
• A rack-mounted LCD monitor unit
• A storage enclosure
• Any rack-mounted tape drives
The B-side (bottom) PDU provides power to the other side of each system and to the
second side of a storage enclosure.
Because the A-side PDU always uses at least as many power cords and consumes at
least as much power as the B-side PDU, plan the cabinet configuration so that the
A-side PDU can support the configuration.
Rack Configuration Planning
5-1
Determining PDU Requirements
NOTES
1. Connect each PDU to a separate AC power source.
2. Install a maximum of two pairs of PDUs in a rack.
Use the information in “Determining PDU Requirements” on page 5-2 to plan the rack
configuration for your ftServer system. “Sample PDU Usage Calculation” on page 5-4
shows how to use the information you gather for planning the rack configuration.
Determining PDU Requirements
Using the nominal voltage rating of the power receptacle at your site and the total
wattage of the components that will draw power from the A-side PDU, complete the
information in Tables 5-1 and 5-2. This information will help you determine the current
that the ftServer systems and rack-mounted components will draw and whether you
need a second pair of PDUs.
To complete Table 5-1
1. Obtain the voltage available at your location. Consult a facilities manager at your
site to make sure you know the correct voltage.
2. For each type of component you plan to place in the rack, calculate the required
current, as follows: Divide the wattage of the element, listed in the Watts column of
Table 5-1, by the voltage available at your site. Multiply the result by 1.25 and enter
the value in the Current column.

more than one system, use a row for each system.
2. In column 2, write the cumulative number of rack units (Us): Add the number of Us
(see Table 5-1) for the component to the value in the space above and write the
result.
3. In column 3, write the cumulative number of outlets required. For each component,
add 1 to the value in the space above and write the result.
4. In column 4, write the cumulative current required. For each component, add the
current for the component, which you entered in Table 5-1, to the value in the space
above and write the result.
You need another pair of PDUs if the cumulative number of outlets exceeds 8 or if the
cumulative current exceeds 15A. Use the information in column 2 to plan the size and
number of racks required.

Sample PDU Usage Calculation
In the calculations in Table 5-4, components were added one by one, calculating:
• The total current demanded by the components
• The total space used in the rack
• The total number of outlets required
In this example, two PDUs can provide enough current for the LCD monitor unit, one
tape drive enclosure, one ftScalable Storage system, and three ftServer 2510, 4410, or
6210 systems. This set of components consumes 14.93 amperes; adding another
system would increase the consumption to 17.94 amperes. The configuration also
occupies 6 outlets in the A-side PDU and 19U of rack space.
To add any more components, you require another pair of PDUs.

Cabinet and Monitor Requirements
6-
For requirements related to providing your own cabinet and monitor, see:
• “Cabinet Requirements” on page 6-1
• “Monitor Requirements” on page 6-4
Cabinet Requirements
If you are providing your own cabinet for an ftServer system, make sure the cabinet
contains a rack that is 19 inches (in.) wide and that meets the Electronic Industries
Association (EIA) 310-D standard.
In general, consider the following factors during your site planning for systems in
cabinets:
• Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature—If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack
assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be
greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing
the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient
temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
• Reduced Air Flow—Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the
amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
• Mechanical Loading—Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a
hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
• Circuit Overloading—Consideration should be given to the connection of the
equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might
have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Make sure that the cabinet meets the following requirements:
• The cabinet can support the weight of all the components you plan to install in it.
Appendix A and the Stratus ftServer Systems: Peripherals Site
Planning Guide (R582) provides the weights of components supplied by Stratus.
Cabinet and Monitor Requirements
6-1
Cabinet Requirements
• The cabinet contains two front and two rear vertical EIA rails, one in each corner of
the cabinet, that have the EIA universal square-hole pattern as defined in the EIA
310-D specification.
• The front vertical rails extend at least 0.5 in. (1.27 centimeters (cm)) beyond the
inside edge of the accessory leg, if present, to allow the mounting rails to be fitted.
See Figure 6-1.
• The distance between the front vertical rails and the inside of the front door is at
least 3.0 in. (7.62 cm).
• The distance between the rear of the system chassis and the inside of the rear door
is at least 6.0 in. (15.24 cm).
• The distance between the front and rear vertical rails is between 24.5 in. and 30 in.
(62.23 cm and 76.20 cm, respectively).
• The vertical mounting rails accept 10-32 cage nuts and mounting hardware.
• The vertical mounting rails are plated, or some other method is used to ensure
continuity for grounding between installed equipment.
• Cable-management brackets are provided to support and constrain data and
power cords so that the cables do not interfere with air flow out of the rear of the
enclosures, and so that the connectors do not disconnect or break.
• To prevent stray voltages, all components are grounded together through the
vertical mounting rails to the cabinet frame, and then to local building ground. To
ensure signal quality, use a grounding cable for local building ground.
• There is a plan for maintaining cables and wires to the cabinet by either running
them under the floor or placing them overhead in an overhead cable tray.
• Air flows through the cabinet from front to back.
• Air does not recirculate within the cabinet.
• Filler panels cover any unused rack space to prevent air recirculation.
• Blockers are installed between the vertical mounting rails and the side panels at
the rear of the cabinet.
• Vents are evenly distributed on the front and rear doors and make up at least 63%
of the surface area.
NOTE
If your cabinet does not have vented front and rear doors,
you can remove the doors from the cabinet while your
ftServer system is operating.
• The final installation conforms to all emission, immunity, safety, and other
applicable regulations.

Monitor Requirements
Monitor Requirements
If you are using a monitor that is not supplied by Stratus, make sure that:
• The monitor accepts universal 100–240 volts AC (VAC), 50/60 Hertz (Hz) power.
• The VGA cable has a 15-pin D-sub connector.
• The power cord for the monitor is long enough to reach the power source.
• The plug type on the power cord is compatible with the external power source at
the site.
ftSSS for VMware Infrastructure does not support the use of a directly-attached VGA
monitor, mouse, and keyboard, except during installation of ESX Server and ftSSS.
See “Management PC Requirements” for information about the alternative method for
directly connecting to the ESX Server system.
Management PC Requirements
For ESX Server systems, you must provide a computer to be the management PC. The
computer must have:
• A serial port
• Terminal emulation software installed.The emulator must be able to transmit
keystrokes such as F1 and F2 to interact with the BIOS.
A serial cable connects the management PC to the ftServer system’s COM2 port to
allow you to directly manage the ftServer system. Use the Virtual Infrastructure (VI)
Client to manage the server, but also provide serial access to the system from a
management PC. You can provide this access either from a computer that is located
near the ftServer system and directly attached by the serial cable, or from a computer
that is connected to the ftServer system through a serial port concentrator.

Appendix B
Electrical Circuit and
Wiring Information
B-
For electrical circuit and wiring information that you need to provide to the contractor
and/or facilities personnel responsible for wiring the power at the system installation
site, see:
• “Fault Protection Requirements” on page B-1
• “Grounding Considerations” on page B-1
• “Circuit Wiring Diagrams” on page B-2
• “Electrical Power Connectors” on page B-8
Fault Protection Requirements
Each enclosure in ftServer systems contains internal fault/overload current protection.
However, the system relies on the power distribution system at your site for protection
against potential faults in the power cords and the wiring in the system base.
The pair of PDUs in the cabinet uses 20A or less circuit breakers in each power
distribution branch that feeds the PDUs.
Grounding Considerations
The system obtains an earth reference ground through the power cords attached to the
system. Similarly, each peripheral device connected to the system obtains ground
through its power cord. For each peripheral device, you must ensure that a
high-integrity safety-ground conductor is installed as part of the wiring system (in
accordance with U.S. national electric code NFPA 70 or the equivalent). The
international safety standard (EN60950) for electronic data processing (EDP)
equipment also requires a ground conductor, but calls it a protective earth (PE) ground.
Depending upon local conditions, ground potentials may differ between the system
base and any peripheral devices connected to the system base. All grounds in the
system must return to the same reference point in the power distribution system, as
close as possible to zero (0) volt potential relative to earth reference ground. Earth
reference ground is typically a metal stake in the ground to which the ground
conductors from one or more buildings are attached.
Electrical Circuit and Wiring Information
B-1
Circuit Wiring Diagrams
As shown in Figure B-1, a star ground is often used to obtain the same earth reference
ground. Each earth reference ground, such as the system base ground, is returned
separately to a common point where a zero-volt (0V) earth ground exists. The star
ground ensures that all equipment is at the same potential and that no noise or safety
problems associated with an unpredictable or uncharacterized grounding system will
occur.

Circuit Wiring Diagrams
The following circuit wiring diagrams show how the hot, ground, and/or neutral AC
signals should be connected to the power input plugs of the system and optional
components:
• Figure B-3 illustrates a single-phase 120V AC circuit connection.
• Figure B-4 illustrates a single-phase 240V AC circuit connection.
• Figure B-5 illustrates a split-phase 120/240V AC circuit connection.

In the following diagrams, the power inputs for ftServer 2510, 4410, and 6210 systems
are labeled X and Y, as shown in Figure B-2, to eliminate any ambiguities in the
nomenclature. For single-phase applications, the X input is connected to the L (Line)

hot input, and the Y input is connected to the N (Neutral) input. However, for split-phase
or three-phase applications, the X and Y inputs are connected to L1, L2, or L3
(separate lines). Therefore, for split-phase or three-phase applications, both X and Y
can be electrically hot with respect to the system base (earth reference ground).
