Ÿ Make a full-scale template (if necessary) of the rack and carry it along the access route to check for
potential clearance problems through doorways and passageways, around corners, and in elevators.
Ÿ Provide space for storage cabinets, card files, desks, communication facilities, daily storage of tapes,
and other supplies.
Ÿ Store all spare materials that can burn in properly designed and protected areas.
Rack Layout
To be sure you have enough space for the racks, create a floor plan before installing the racks. You
might need to prepare and analyze several layouts before choosing the final plan.
If you are installing the racks in two or more stages, prepare a separate layout for each stage.
Consider the following when you make a layout:
Ÿ The flow of work and personnel within the area.
Ÿ Operator access to units, as required.
Ÿ If the rack is on a raised floor, position it over a cooling register. The bottom of the rack is open to
facilitate cooling.
Ÿ If the rack is not on a raised floor:
– The maximum cable lengths
– The need for such things as cable guards and ramps to protect equipment and personnel
Ÿ Location of any planned safety equipment.
Ÿ Expansion.
6
IBM Netfinity Rack
Begin with an accurate drawing of the installation area (blueprints and floor plans are appropriate).
Be sure to include the following on the layout:
Ÿ Service clearances required for each rack or suite of racks.
Ÿ If the equipment is on a raised floor:
– Things that might obstruct cable routing
– The height of the raised floor
Ÿ If the equipment is not on a raised floor:
– The placement of cables to minimize obstruction
– If the cable routing is indirectly between racks (such as along walls or suspended), the amount of
additional cable
Ÿ Location of:
– Power receptacles
– Air conditioning equipment and controls
– File cabinets, desks, and other office equipment
– Room emergency power-off controls
– All entrances, exits, windows, columns, and pillars
Review the final layout to ensure that cable lengths are not too long and that the racks have enough
clearance.
Electrical Requirements
Note: You might need to consult an electrician to assist you with these plans.
Ÿ Each rack requires at least one power unit.
– Refer to “100–120 V Power Distribution Unit (PDU)” on page 13 and “200–240 V Power
Distribution Unit” on page 13 for the power distribution unit (PDU) features.
– Refer to “APC Smart-UPS Uninterruptible Power Supplies” on page 14 for the uninterruptible
power supply (UPS) features.
Ÿ Each power unit (PDU or UPS) requires a separate AC power branch circuit.
Ÿ Make sure the input voltage-selection switch on each device installed in a rack matches the output
voltage of the rack power unit.
Ÿ Make sure the correct power outlets are installed to match your rack power plugs.
Important:
Never change a rack power plug.

Netfinity Rack Cables Installation Guidelines
Follow these guidelines when installing rack cables.
Ÿ When installing cables to devices mounted on sliding rails:
– Run the cables neatly along equipment cable-management arms and tie the cables to the arms.
(Obtain the cable ties locally.)
– Leave enough slack so the device can be fully extended without putting a strain on the cables.
– Tie the cables so the device can be retracted without pinching or cutting the cables.
Ÿ Run the cables neatly along the rack rear corner posts.
Ÿ Use cable ties to secure the cables to the corner posts.
Ÿ Make sure the cables cannot be pinched or cut by the rack rear door.
Ÿ Run internal cables that connect devices in adjoining racks through the open rack sides.
Ÿ Run external cables through the open rack bottom.
Ÿ Take particular care when attaching fiber optic cables to the rack. Refer to the instructions included
with your fiber optic cables for guidance on minimum radius, handling, and care of fiber optic cables.

Appendix B. Product Warranties and Notices
The following is the statement of limited warranty for the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
International Business Machines Corporation
Armonk, New York, 10504
Statement of Limited Warranty
The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to Machines you originally purchase for your use,
and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades,
elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the
country where you acquire the Machine. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
Machine: IBM Netfinity Rack
Warranty Period*: Three Years
*Contact your place of purchase for warranty service information.
Production Status
Each Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In some cases, the Machine may not be new and may have
been previously installed. Regardless of the Machine's production status, IBM's warranty terms apply.
The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM's Official Published
Specifications. The warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date on
your receipt is the Date of Installation, unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if authorized by IBM, will provide warranty service under the type of service
designated for the Machine and will manage and install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
For IBM or your reseller to provide warranty service for a feature, conversion, or upgrade, IBM or your reseller may require that the
Machine on which it is installed be 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine and 2) at an
engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion, or upgrade. Many of these transactions involve the removal of
parts and their return to IBM. You represent that all removed parts are genuine and unaltered. A part that replaces a removed part
will assume the warranty service status of the replaced part.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, IBM or your reseller will repair it or replace it with one that is
at least functionally equivalent, without charge. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order. If IBM or your
reseller is unable to repair or replace the Machine, you may return it to your place of purchase and your money will be refunded.
If you transfer a Machine to another user, warranty service is available to that user for the remainder of the warranty period. You
should give your proof of purchase and this Statement to that user. However, for Machines which have a life-time warranty, this
warranty is not transferable.
Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, you should contact your reseller or call IBM. In the United States, call IBM at
1-800-772-2227. In Canada, call IBM at 1-800-565-3344. You may be required to present proof of purchase.
IBM or your reseller will provide certain types of repair and exchange service, either at your location or at IBM's or your reseller's
service center, to restore a Machine to good working order.
When a type of service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and
the replacement becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement may not be
new, but will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the
warranty service status of the replaced item. Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all
features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service. You also agree to ensure that the Machine is free
of any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent its exchange.
You agree to:
1. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a Machine that you do not own; and
2. where applicable, before service is provided —
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provide,
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine, and
 Copyright IBM Corp. 1998
35
c. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine's location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in IBM's possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM
is responsible for the transportation charges.
Extent of Warranty
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
The warranties may be voided by misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, improper
maintenance by you, removal or alteration of Machine or parts identification labels, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is
not responsible.
THESE WARRANTIES REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. SOME
JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES,
SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT SUCH WARRANTIES
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Limitation of Liability
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM's part or other liability you are entitled to recover damages from IBM.
In each such instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM (including fundamental breach,
negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract or tort claim), IBM is liable only for:
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages or loss, up to the greater of U.S. $100,000 or the charges (if recurring, 12
months' charges apply) for the Machine that is the subject of the claim.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: 1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS
AGAINST YOU FOR LOSSES OR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE);
2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT
DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS),
EVEN IF IBM OR YOUR RESELLER IS INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
