I. Introduction
1-5. Preparation
1. Unpack your server, but do not connect the power cord.
IMPORTANT
Most servers use an AT power supply that has a fixed On and Off
switch located on the front. This server uses an ATX power supply that is normally off until an electrical signal is given to the
power supply through a momentary switch located on the front
of the server. There is always a standby power in the power supply for ATX power supply features to work. Therefore removing
the power cord is necessary to prevent electrical shocks when
working on the server components.
2. Unlock the padlock if one is used. This server is equipped with a lockable panel to prevent unauthorized access. Open the side panel.
3. Install final server components such as CPU, memory, hard disk drives,
and expansion cards. Use this hardware reference guide along with your
motherboard’s User’s Manual in order to complete the installations.
4. Connect a keyboard and a mouse (purchased separately).
5. Connect a VGA-compatible monitor (purchased separately).
6. Connect a printer to the parallel port if desired.
7. Connect the server to a network. (An optional network card is needed.)
8. Set the power supply input voltage to either 115V for 110V-120V areas
or 230V for 220V-240V areas.
CAUTION
The voltage must be set correctly or damage may occur.
9. Connect the included power cord to the server’s power supply.
10. Connect the server to a grounded (three pronged) AC power source such
as a UPS or power strip (preferably with surge protection).
WARNING
This server is designed for connection to a grounded (earthed)
outlet. To reduce the risk of electrical shock or damage to your
server, do not bypass the grounding plug.

This server uses an ATX power supply that is normally off until an electrical signal is given to the power supply through a momentary switch located on the front of the server. There is always a standby power in the
power supply for ATX power supply features to work. Therefore removing the power cord is necessary to prevent electrical shocks when working on the server components.
Air Circulation System
The server’s air circulation system is comprised of one 3-inch (8 cm) fan mounted
on the inside rear of the chassis and another one mounted on the front of the
chassis, as well as the power supply itself. The air circulation system cools the
internal system by bringing fresh air in from the back and forcing the hot air out
through the front.
System Speaker
This server has a standard speaker for error notifications and other alerts.
For computer audio capability, an audio card and external speakers are
necessary.
Long Card Guide
The chassis provides a long card guide to help hold the expansion cards in
their slots.

i. SCSI Cable Limits
SCSI cables have a limit to the length that it may have. Exceeding the length
may cause problems mounting or using any one of the SCSI devices.
Cable Limits
1) 12m (29.4ft)
2) 3m - 1.5m
3) 3m (9.8ft)
4) 3m - 1.5m
5) 3m (9.8ft)

NOTE
1) A total of 15 “Ultra2-SCSI” devices (ID0-ID15) may be connected to the 68-pin Ultra2 connector on the motherboard.
If connecting Fast/Ultra devices with Ultra2 devices on the
Ultra2 connector, the entire SCSI bus will be limited to the
Ultra SCSI conditions listed above. Mixing SCSI devices is
not recommended.
2) A total of 7 “Wide Ultra-SCSI” devices (ID0-ID15) may be
connected to the 68-pin Wide connector if using a 1.5m (4.9ft)
cable, but only 4 “Wide Ultra-SCSI” devcies if using a 3m
(9.89ft) cable. Ultra-SCSI technology is unstable over long
lengths. Therefore stability will depend on the quality of your
cable and devices.
3) A total of 15 “Wide-SCSI” devices (ID0-ID15) may be connected to the 68-pin Wide connector.
4) A total of 7 “Narrow Ultra-SCSI” devices (ID0-ID6) may be
connected to the 50-pin Narrow connector when using 1.5m
(4.9ft) cable but only 4 devices when using a 3m (9.8ft) cable.
5) A total of 7 “Narrow Fast SCSI” devices (ID0-ID6) may be
connected to the 50-pin Narrow connector.

SCSI Cable Limits
IMPORTANT
• The SCSI ID for devices on one connector cannot be the same
as the SCSI ID for devices on the other connectors. None of
the devices on any connector can use ID7, which is reserved
for the SCSI controller.
• A maximum of 15 devices may be connected to the motherboard (three connectors) at one time. The following “Max Devices” are for individual connectors and do not take into account other SCSI devices.
V. Appendix
ii. SCSI Connection Example
This is an example of how SCSI devices can be connected to your server.
•
•
•
Two 9GB Ultra2-SCSI hard disks in the 3.5” cage can be connected to
the Ultra2 connector on the motherboard for 18GB of main storage.
One Ultra-SCSI tape drive in the 5.25” cage is connected to the 50-pin
narrow connector on the motherboard for routine backups.
The Wide-SCSI connector on the motherboard can be extended (using
an optional SCSI cable with external bracket) to the chassis slot opening
for connection of an external 4GB Ultra-Wide hard disk drive and a
Wide-SCSI CD recorder for archives.

You must terminate the SCSI cable even if no devices
are connected. Either place a terminator here or remove
the SCSI cable from the motherboard. This holds true for
each unused SCSI cable.
