group when selecting and preparing a site. See ‘‘Working with Other Groups’’ on
page 1-12 for details.
 ‘‘Location and Space Considerations’’ on page 1-3
 ‘‘Cabinet Mounting and Leveling Considerations’’ on page 1-4
 ‘‘Electrical Power Considerations’’ on page 1-4
 ‘‘Communications Cabling Considerations’’ on page 1-6
 ‘‘Environmental Considerations’’ on page 1-8
 ‘‘Underwriters Laboratories Recommendations’’ on page 1-8
Location and Space Considerations
Consider the following information when selecting a location for the system:
 The system must be installed in a computer room with a controlled environment.
See Appendix A for environmental specifications.
 The room must have sufficient space for opening cabinet doors, removing cabinet
panels, and servicing the system from the front and rear.
 The room must have sufficient floor space for external components, such as the
optional external E124 storage-system cabinets.
 Each PC console, telephone, RSN console server, and modem (if present)
requires table or desktop space. You cannot place a peripheral on top of a system
cabinet.
 You must place the system and peripheral devices within the room so that power
cords and communications cables of the maximum length will reach their

Figure 1-1. Space-Planning Considerations
Cabinet Mounting and Leveling Considerations
The main cabinet has cabinet-leveling feet. Anti-tip brackets are optional. The
cabinet-leveling feet and the anti-tip brackets rest on top of the floor, so you do not need
to drill holes in the floor.
Electrical Power Considerations
Consider the following information when providing electrical service for the system:
 ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400 systems require AC power. See ‘‘AC Power and
HVAC Worksheets’’ on page 2-2 for details.
1-4
Stratus ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400 Systems: Site Planning Guide (R543)
Site Planning Considerations
 ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400 systems require external uninterruptible AC
power sources. See ‘‘Redundant Power Sources’’ on page 2-1 for details.
 The main cabinet requires separate circuits for its two power cords. Special power
outlets may be needed.
 Each external peripheral requires separate electrical circuits and outlets.
 Power cords should be located out of the way of foot traffic.
 The power service must be properly wired and grounded according to local
standards and regulations. See Appendix B for electrical circuit and wiring
information.
 Determine the lengths and types of the power cords provided with your system.
See Table 2-1 for details.
Figure 1-2 illustrates the AC power considerations. The table shown in this figure (or
other suitable surface) is required to hold the RSN Internet console server or the RSN
dialup console server and the RSN modem (if present).

Site Planning Considerations
Communications Cabling Considerations
Consider the following information when deciding where to route cables for the system:
 Existing LAN and WAN communications connections must be within cabling
distance to the system.
 A telephone and telephone line must be provided for voice communications when
calling for support. The telephone should be placed such that it can be used by a
person who has access to the PC console, the front of the system, and to the back
of the system.
 If you are using the AA-E96600 RSN dialup console server, a telephone jack with
a connection to an additional external analog telephone line (not switched through
a PBX) must be near the installation site for connection to your system’s RSN
modem.
NOTE
A dedicated phone line provides the most reliable service.
RSN calls routed through a PBX might be slow due to load
on the PBX, or might 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.
 Consider cabling needs for future expansion. For example, you may need to install
additional cabling in your building to support any additional devices that may be
required. By prewiring wall outlets for data communications, you can add terminals
as needed.
 Cables can exit from the top or bottom of the cabinet and can be routed along the
ceiling or under the floor.

Environmental Considerations
The operating environment must maintain reasonable temperature and humidity levels
and be as free of dust as possible. See Appendix A for a list of the system’s
environmental requirements.
Underwriters Laboratories Recommendations
Consider the following Underwriters Laboratories (UL®) safety recommendations:
 Elevated operating ambient—If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room
ambient. You should install the equipment in an environment compatible with the
maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
 Reduced air flow—Install the equipment in a rack so that the amount of air flow
required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.

Site Planning Checklist
 Mechanical loading—Mount the equipment in the rack so that a hazardous
condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
 Circuit overloading—Give consideration 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. Use equipment nameplate ratings when
addressing this concern.
 Reliable earthing—Maintain reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment. Give
particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections to the
branch circuit (for example, the use of power strips).
Site Planning Checklist
This section contains a site planning checklist that you can use to plan and prepare
your site for installation of an ftServer V 100, V 200, or V 400 system and associated
peripherals. The remaining chapters of this manual provide additional site planning
reference information about each component of ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400
systems.
During the site planning process, you should work closely with your facilities group or
contractor to determine power, cooling, and other requirements for your installation
site. See ‘‘Working with Other Groups’’ on page 1-12 for details.
❏ Determine the location of the installation site. You may want to plan for possible
expansion of the system and site.
❏ In Table 2-1, check off the products that you have purchased. If you have any
questions about which products you have purchased, contact your Stratus account
executive or distributor.
❏ Use Table 2-1 to determine the quantity and type of AC power outlets required.
Also use Table 2-1 to determine the lengths of the AC power cords. See
Appendix A and the Stratus ftServer Systems Peripherals Site Planning
Guide (R582) for specifications for the components of your ftServer V 100, V 200,
or V 400 system. See Appendix B for AC plug types and connector diagrams.
NOTE
If you do not know the available voltage at your proposed
installation site, contact your facilities group or contractor.
❏ Use Table 2-2 to determine the AC power and HVAC (cooling) requirements.
❏ Determine what communications connections, such as Ethernet, synchronous,
system console, RSN console server, and telephone lines, will be required. For
more information about communications cabling, see Chapter 4.
Site Planning Overview
1-9
Site Planning Checklist
❏ If you are using the AA-E97700 RSN Internet console server, provide an Ethernet
connection to the Internet.
❏ Obtain an outside telephone line for use when calling for service.
❏ If you are using the AA-E96600 RSN dialup console server, obtain a second
outside telephone line for the RSN modem.
!
CAUTION
RSN calls can be routed through a PBX, but this may
cause data loss. Stratus strongly recommends that you
use an outside line. If you must use a PBX, you cannot
route the phone extension through a switchboard; it must
be a direct-dial number.
❏ Use the equipment templates in Figure 3-1 and the site-layout grid in Figure 3-2 to
create a sketch of how the system will be arranged at the installation site. When
locating your system, consider the lengths of available power cords and
communications cables and the locations of power plugs, phone jacks, and
communications connectors. Use the information you provided in Table 2-1 and
Table 2-2.
❏ Provide the completed Tables 2-1 and 2-2, the site-layout grid, any notes you
make, and a copy of Appendix B to the facilities group or contractors who will be
performing site modifications.
❏ After providing the site planning information to your facilities group or contractor,
you may want to review and discuss the requirements to ensure that all site
modifications are addressed and understood.
❏ Determine where your system and peripheral devices will be unpacked. Plan to
unpack the ftServer V 100, V 200, or V 400 system as close to the installation site
as possible.
❏ Walk the path over which you will move your system from the delivery site to the
unpacking site. Determine if the door, hallway, and elevator dimensions are wide
enough to allow access. See ‘‘Main Cabinet’’ on page A-2 for dimensions of an
ftServer V 100, V 200, or V 400 system and its shipping container.
NOTE
Doorways must be a minimum of 28 in. (71 cm) wide.
Elevators must be a minimum of 28 in. (71 cm) wide,
41 in. (104 cm) long, and 74 in. (188 cm) high to
accommodate the passage of a system removed from its
shipping container. If a doorway or elevator is too small,
plan to unpack the shipping container before moving a
cabinet through the doorway or into the elevator.

Preparing to Install a System
❏ If you are installing the system on a raised floor, obtain two or three pieces of
plywood. Before you move the cabinets across the raised floor, lay the plywood on
the floor to prevent the floor tiles from popping up.
❏ Review your responsibilities for preparing to install a system in ‘‘Preparing to Install
a System’’ on page 1-11.
If you have any questions during the site planning process, contact the CAC or Stratus
distributor. The CAC telephone numbers are provided on the CAC Web site at
http://www.stratus.com/support/cac.
Preparing to Install a System
To prepare for the installation of an ftServer V 100, V 200, or V 400 system by a Stratus
field engineer, you must perform the following tasks:
1. Complete all site preparation work.
2. Take delivery of the system (as described in ‘‘Preparing to Take Delivery of a
System’’ on page 1-11).
3. Move the system to its installation site (as described in ‘‘Moving the System to the
Installation Site’’ on page 1-12).
Preparing to Take Delivery of a System
Before you take delivery of your system, perform the following tasks:
1. Secure traffic permits for the delivery vehicle and security clearances for moving
the shipping container within your facility if necessary.
2. Determine a suitable delivery site with enough space for unloading the system.
3. Make sure that the delivery site will accommodate the delivery vehicle.
NOTE
Depending on the system configuration and the
components you have ordered, a separate carton
containing components may be shipped with your system.
When your system arrives, do the following:
 Check the Tip-N-Tell and Shockwatch motion sensors to determine if they have
been activated. If a sensor has been activated, or if there is any damage, report it
immediately to the carrier and to the Stratus CAC.
 Check the packing list. If you received the wrong shipment, or if the shipment is
incomplete, report it immediately to the carrier and to the Stratus CAC.

Preparing to Install a System
Moving the System to the Installation Site
Before moving your system to the installation site, you should do the following:
NOTE
Moving the system requires two able-bodied persons.
1. Obtain a forklift or pallet jack to move your system from the delivery area to the
installation site.
2. Check the dimensions of doorways and the load capacities of floors and elevators.
You should walk the path over which you will move the system to ensure that it can
be easily moved to the installation site. If your system will not fit through the
doorways, you may need to arrange for rigging.
NOTE
Each cabinet is shipped on a pallet that is slightly larger
than a standard door opening. A standard door opening is
35 in. (89 cm) wide, and all pallets are 41.0 in. (104.2 cm)
wide by 53.0 in. (134.6 cm) deep.
3. If you are moving the system across a raised floor, lay plywood on the raised floor
to prevent floor tiles from popping up when you move the system.
4. Move the system as close to the installation site as possible.
Working with Other Groups
After you complete your site planning analysis, you may want to discuss your
requirements with a person from your building facilities and HVAC group. Provide your
facilities group and/or contractors with the floor-plan sketch and copies of the following:
 Table 2-1 and Table 2-2, which provide information for determining power and
HVAC requirements
 Appendix B, ‘‘Electrical Circuit and Wiring Information”
 Any notes you have taken about site planning
Review and discuss the requirements with the facilities personnel and/or contractors to
ensure that all site modifications are understood and implemented.

AC Power Planning
2-
This chapter describes the AC power requirements of ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400
systems. It contains the following sections:
 ‘‘AC Power Overview’’ on page 2-1
 ‘‘Redundant Power Sources’’ on page 2-1
 ‘‘AC Power and HVAC Worksheets’’ on page 2-2
 ‘‘Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer V 200 and V 400 Systems’’ on page 2-4
 ‘‘Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer V 100 Systems’’ on page 2-9
 ‘‘Power Cord Summary’’ on page 2-10
AC Power Overview
For fault tolerance, each ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400 system requires two
separate and independent AC power sources. These power sources feed two UPS
units. The UPS units feed power to a pair of power distribution units (PDUs) inside the
main cabinet that, in turn, distribute power to the system’s components.
Expansion storage-system cabinets also require two separate and independent AC
power sources, each fed by two UPS units. The same UPS units can feed the ftServer
system and any expansion storage-system cabinets. Use one of the UPS models that
Stratus has qualified. See ‘‘Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer V 200 and V 400
Systems’’ on page 2-4 or ‘‘Selecting a UPS Unit for ftServer V 100 Systems’’ on
page 2-9 for more information.
You must also provide AC power to peripherals located outside the main cabinet, such
as the system console, RSN console server, and RSN modem (if present).
Redundant Power Sources
Each ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400 system requires two separate and independent
AC power sources: an A-side power source and the B-side power source. Because
either side must be capable of continuing to provide power if power to the other side is
lost, each power source must provide uninterruptible AC power.
AC Power Planning
2-1
AC Power and HVAC Worksheets
Each PDU receives power from its power source (through a permanently attached
power input cord) and distributes power to the components inside the cabinet (through
six power outlets and a permanently attached power output cord).
The top PDU in the cabinet receives power from the A-side power source (typically a
UPS unit) and distributes power to:
 The A-side of the system backplane
 The A-side of the optional network I/O enclosure
 One side of each FC disk enclosure
 The AA-T53300 SDLT Single Tape-Drive Enclosure or AA-T53400 SDLT Dual
Tape-Drive Enclosure
The bottom PDU in the cabinet receives power from the B-side power source (typically
a UPS unit) and distributes power to:
 The B-side of the system backplane, in stand-by mode (the B-side power source is
used if power to the A-side source is interrupted)
 The B-side of the optional network I/O enclosure, in stand-by mode (the B-side
power source is used if power to the A-side source is interrupted)
 One side of each FC disk enclosure
AC Power and HVAC Worksheets
When planning for the system’s electrical needs, consider the following:
 The AC power service required at the site
 The number and types of the power outlets
 Power cord lengths, plug types, and current rating
This section contains the following worksheets:
 Table 2-1, a site planning worksheet for determining the number and types of AC
outlets required at the site and the lengths of the power cords. See ‘‘Power Cord
Summary’’ on page 2-10 for more information about power cords.
 Table 2-2, a site planning worksheet for AC power and HVAC requirements.
Place check marks in the boxes for those products that you have purchased. For each
row that you check marked in Table 2-1:
 Fill in the Quantity of Product Purchased column.
 Multiply it by the supplied value in the No. of AC Outlets Required column.
 Write the result in the Subtotal of AC Outlets column.

Room Requirements
This section describes the requirements of the room in which the ftServer V 100,
V 200, or V 400 system will be placed.
!
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.
Make sure the location where you will install the ftServer V 100, V 200, or V 400
system:
 Provides clearances for air circulation and servicing the system. Locate the front
and rear of the system at least 2.5 ft. (0.76m) away from walls and other
obstructions.
 Maintains temperature and humidity levels within the allowable ranges and has a
thermometer and humidistat to monitor room temperature and humidity. See
Appendix A for temperature and humidity requirements.
 Is as free of dust as possible. Dust buildup in the system can impede air circulation
and heat transfer, causing components to become less reliable as the ambient
temperature rises.
Dust buildup in the system can impede air circulation and heat transfer, causing
components to become less reliable as the ambient temperature rises.
Space Planning
3-1
Creating a Floor Plan
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.
 Provides table or desktop space for external devices such as a telephone, system
console, RSN console server and RSN modem (if present).
 Provides cutouts in the floor for routing cables, if the site has an elevated floor.
 Provides sufficient telephone lines:
– All modules need a telephone and one line for use when calling for service.
– If you are using the AA-E96600 RSN dialup console server, an additional
analog telephone line that is not routed through a PBX is required for
connection to the RSN modem.
 Provides Ethernet jacks, switches, or hubs as needed.
 Provides communications cable connectors or patch panels as needed.
 Provides two electrically separate grounded AC wall outlets, within reach of the
power cords from UPS units.
 Provides grounded AC wall outlets for external components that do not connect to
a PDU.
Creating a Floor Plan
This section provides equipment templates and a site-layout grid to help you plan the
placement of the components within the room. Appendix A provides detailed
specifications for each of the system’s components.
Use the equipment templates in Figure 3-1 and the site-layout grid in Figure 3-2 to
create a floor plan of the installation site for your ftServer system. On this floor plan,
sketch the:
 Locations of the system and all external components
 Locations and types of AC power outlets
 Lengths and routes of power cords
 Locations of phone jacks, Ethernet jacks, switches, and/or hubs

Two U772 24-Port 10/100 Ethernet Switches and two U773 12-Port Fibre Channel
Switches connected in a supported configuration is an available option. This option
enables you to:
 Free up PCI adapter slots. Use U534V Dual-Port Optical Fibre Channel PCI
Adapters and U773 12-Port Fibre Channel Switches in place of single port
U528 Optical Fibre Channel PCI Adapters.
 Add an optional ftScalable Storage array. You must use the supported
U772 Ethernet and U773 fibre channel switches if your system includes an
ftScalable Storage array.
Communications Line Planning
4-1
Maintenance Network
If the U772 Ethernet and U773 fibre channel switches are present in your system, you
must connect:
 The U772 Ethernet switches to the ftServer system’s embedded Ethernet ports. If
your module has a network I/O enclosure you must disconnect it from the
embedded Ethernet ports and connect it to U575V or U577 Ethernet adapters.
 The RSN console server and UPS units to the U772 Ethernet switches.
You can also connect the PC console to a U772 Ethernet switch for management of
ftScalable Storage arrays.
Maintenance Network
The CAC or other authorized Stratus service representative uses the U772 Ethernet
switches as a private maintenance network for remote service and debug operations.
Do not connect any other network to the U772 Ethernet switches. Instead, connect the
site Ethernet ports, hubs, or switches (that you must supply) to unused Ethernet
adapter ports in your ftServer system.
NOTES
1. The U772 Ethernet switches are reserved for Stratus
support and maintenance operations only. You cannot
connect any other devices to them.
2. The U772 24-Port 10/100 Ethernet Switch is the only
supported Ethernet switch. You cannot use any other
type of hub or switch in the maintenance network.
Fibre Channel Connections
The following Fibre Channel devices can connect to the ftServer module.
 AA-T53300 and AA-T53400 tape-drive enclosures connect to U528 or U534V PCI
adapters.
 In a base ftServer module configuration (with no U772 Ethernet and U773 fibre
channel switches), D910 storage enclosures connect to U528 or U534V PCI
adapters.
 In an ftServer module configuration that includes U772 Ethernet and U773 fibre
channel switches, D910 storage enclosures and the optional ftScalable Storage
arrays connect to U773 12-Port Fibre Channel Switches. The switches connect to
U534V adapters. If ftScalable Storage arrays are not present, the switches may
connect to U528 PCI adapters.

RSN Connection
Connecting a system to the Stratus RSN allows the CAC to remotely diagnose,
troubleshoot, and resolve problems online.
See the manual OpenVOS System Administration: Configuring a System (R287) for
information about making RSN entries in the devices.tin file.
Depending on the type of RSN console server, ftServer V 100, V 200, and V 400
systems can connect to the Stratus RSN over the Internet, a phone line, or an X.25 line.
For more information, see the manuals VOS Communications Software: X.25 and
StrataNET Administration (R091) and OpenVOS System Administration: Administering
and Customizing a System (R281).
There are two types of RSN console servers. The following sections describe their
connections:
 ‘‘Connecting the AA-E97700 RSN Internet Console Server’’ on page 4-8
 ‘‘Connecting the AA-E96600 RSN Dialup Console Server’’ on page 4-9

The AA-E97700 RSN Internet console server requires OpenVOS Release 17.1.0 or
later. It connects to the module and the Internet as follows:
 L2 Ethernet port:
– If a maintenance network with U772 Ethernet switches is present in the
system, connect the RSN console server L2 port to a U772 Ethernet switch.
– If no U772 Ethernet switches are present but a network I/O enclosure is
present, connect the RSN console server L2 port to a U764 PICMG 2.16
switch in the network I/O enclosure.
– If neither U772 Ethernet switches nor a network I/O enclosure are present in
the system, connect the RSN console server L2 port to a U575V or U577 PCI
adapter.
 L1 Ethernet port:
Connect the RSN console server L1 Ethernet port to an external network
connected to the Internet.
 Serial port 1:

– If a maintenance network with U772 Ethernet switches is present in the
system, connect the RSN console server to a U772 Ethernet switch.
– If no U772 Ethernet switches are present but a network I/O enclosure is
present, connect the RSN console server to a U764 PICMG 2.16 switch in the
network I/O enclosure.
– If neither U772 Ethernet switches nor a network I/O enclosure are present in
the system, connect the RSN console server to a U575V or U577 PCI adapter.
 P2 serial port:
Connect the P2 serial port to the ftServer system’s COM1 port.
 P1 serial port:
Connect the P1 serial port to the RSN modem.
See the Stratus ftServer Systems Peripherals Site Planning Guide (R582) for the

PCI Adapter Cables
PCI Adapter Cables
Each U520 Single-Port 4/16-Mbps Token-Ring PCI Adapter requires a single cable.
U528 PCI adapters that attach to D910 FC disk enclosures are teamed for fault
tolerance. A cable for each member of the pair is required.
U534V PCI adapters that attach to D910 FC disk enclosures or to U773 12-Port Fibre
Channel Switch are teamed for fault tolerance. Two cables for each adapter are
supplied with the adapter.
U574V-LC PCI adapters and U575V PCI adapters are typically used in pairs and
grouped for fault tolerance. You must supply up to two Ethernet cables for the ports on
each U574V-LC and U575V PCI adapter.
U576 and U577 Ethernet PCI adapters are typically used in pairs and grouped for fault
tolerance. A cable for each member of the pair is required.

Appendix B
Electrical Circuit and
Wiring Information
You should provide electrical circuit and wiring information to the contractor and/or
facilities personnel responsible for wiring the power at the system installation site. The
information you need to provide includes:
 ‘‘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-9
Fault Protection Requirements
Each enclosure in the ftServer V 100, V 200, or V 400 system contains 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.
 Use 30A or less circuit breakers in each power distribution branch feeding the
PDUs.
 To connect a single system to power, use 20A or less circuit breakers in each
power distribution branch feeding the systems.
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 on local conditions, ground potentials may differ between the system base
and any peripheral devices connected to the system base. All grounds in the system
Electrical Circuit and Wiring Information

Circuit Wiring Diagrams
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.
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
NOTE
As shown in Figure B-2, the power inputs for the ftServer
system are labeled X and Y in the diagrams in this
appendix 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). Figure B-2
illustrates the physical locations of the X and Y inputs on
the system base.
