Chapter 2:
System Safety
2-1
Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your chassis up and running.
Following the steps in order given should enable you to have your chassis setup and
operational within a minimal amount of time. This quick set up assumes that you
are an experienced technician, famailiar with common concepts and terminology.
2-2
Warnings and Precautions
You should inspect the box the chassis was shipped in and note if it was damaged
in any way. If the chassis itself shows damage, file a damage claim with carrier
who delivered your system.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold that chassis. It should
be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is well venilated. Avoid areas where heat,
electrical noise and eletromagnetic fields are generated.
You will also need it placed near at least one grounded power outlet. When configured, the SC808 chassis includes one power supply.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The SC808 Chassis includes a set of rail assemblies, including mounting brackets
and mounting screws you will need to install the systems into the rack. Please read
this manual in its entirety before you begin the installation procedure.
2-4
Electrical Safety Precautions
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the SC808 from damage:
l
Be aware of the locations of the power on/off switch on the chassis as well
as the room’s emergency power-off switch, disconnection switch or electri-
2-1
Chassis Manual
cal outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly remove
power from the system.
l
Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
l
Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or
installing main system components, such as the serverboard, memory modules and the DVD-ROM and floppy drives (not necessary for hot swappable
drives). When disconnecting power, you should first power down the
system with the operating system and then unplug the power cords from all
the power supply modules in the system.
l
When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is familiar with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the power,
if necessary.
l
Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment.
This is to avoid making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical shock.
Use extreme caution when using metal tools, which can easily damage any
electrical components or circuit boards they come into contact with.
l
Do not use mats designed to decrease electrostatic discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.
l
The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
l
Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the
onboard battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarities
This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to
the manufacturer’s instructions.
l
DVD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a
DVD-ROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and hazardous radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the unit in any
unconventional way.
2-5
l
General Safety Precautions
Keep the area around the chassis clean and free of clutter.
2-2
Chapter 2: System Safety
l
Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been
removed away from the system or on a table so that they won’t accidentally
be stepped on.
l
While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties
and unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical
circuits or be pulled into a cooling fan.
l
Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent
metal conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come
into contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
l
After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and
secure it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all
connections have been made.
2-6
System Safety
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical
charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical discharge is created to
neutralize this difference, which can damage electronic components and printed
circuit boards. The following measures are generally sufficient to neutralize this
difference before contact is made to protect your equipment from ESD:
l
Do not use mats designed to decrease electrostatic discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.
l
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
l
Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic
bags until ready for use.
l
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
l
Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing, which
may retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
l
Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or contacts.
l
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
2-3
Chassis Manual
l
Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when
not in use.
l
For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and the serverboard.

Power Supply
Depending on your chassis model the SC808 Chassis has a 980 watt power supply.
This power supply is auto-switching capable. This enables it to automatically sense
and operate at a 100v to 240v input voltage. An amber light will be illuminated on
the power supply when the power is off. An illuminated green light indicates that
the power supply is operating.
Power Supply Replacement
The SC808 chassis utilizes one power supply. In the unlikely event that the power
supply unit must be replaced, the system will shut down. Replacement units can
be ordered directly from Supermicro (see contact information in the Preface).

Rack Installation
6-1
Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your chassis up and running.
Following these steps in the order given should enable you to have the system
operational within a minimum amount of time.
6-2
Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the chassis was shipped in and note if it was damaged
in any way. If the chassis itself shows damage you should file a damage claim
with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold your chassis. It should
be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated. Avoid areas where
heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields are generated. You will also need
it placed near a grounded power outlet. Be sure to read the Rack and Server
Precautions in the next section.
6-3
Preparing for Setup
The box your chassis was shipped in should include two sets of rail assemblies,
two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need to install the
system into the rack. Please read this section in its entirety before you begin the
installation procedure outlined in the sections that follow.
Choosing a Setup Location
- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front door
completely (~25 inches).
- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack to allow for
sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
- This product is for installation only in a Restricted Access Location (dedicated
equipment rooms, service closets and the like).
6-1
Chassis Manual
Warnings and Precautions!
Rack Precautions
- Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended to
the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
- In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
- In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
- Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the
rack.
- You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or more
simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
General Server Precautions
- Review the electrical and general safety precautions that came with the components you are adding to your chassis.
- Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the
rails.
- Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then
work up.
- Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from
power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a
power failure.
- Allow the hot plug hard drives and power supply modules to cool before touching them.
- Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on the servers
closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient temperature of the
room. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an
environment compatible with the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).
6-2
Chapter 6: Rack Installation
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow required
for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does not
arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack itself
should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of power
strips, etc.).
6-3

Rack Mounting Instructions
This section provides information on installing the SC808 chassis into a rack unit
with the rails provided. There are a variety of rack units on the market, which
may mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly. You should also refer to the
installation instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.
NOTE: This rail will fit a rack between 26" and 33.5" deep.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
The chassis package includes two rack rail assemblies in the rack mounting kit.
Each assembly consists of two sections: an inner fixed chassis rail that secures
directly to the server chassis and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to
the rack itself.
Rail Extension
(Inner Rail is preinstalled
to the chassis)

Figure 6-2: Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
(right side rail shown)
Installing the Inner Rail Extension
The SC808 chassis includes a set of inner rails in two sections: inner rails and inner
rail extensions. The inner rails are preattached and do not interfere with normal use
of the chassis if you decide not to use a server rack. Attach the inner rail extension
to stabilize the chassis within the rack.
To install the inner rails:
1. Place the inner rack extensions on the side of the chassis aligning the hooks
of the chassis with the rail extension holes. Make sure the extension faces
"outward" just like the preattached inner rail.
2. Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
3. Secure the chassis with 2 screws as illustrated.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the other inner rail extension.

Figure 6-3: Assembling the Outer Rails
To install the outer rails to the rack:
1. Attach the short bracket to the outside of the long bracket. You must align the
pins with the slides. Also, both bracket ends must face the same direction.
2. Adjust both the short and long brackets to the proper distance so that the rail
fits snugly into the rack.
3. Secure the long bracket to the front side of the outer rail with two M5 screws
and the short bracket to the rear side of the outer rail with three M5 screws.
4. Repeat steps 1-4 for the left outer rail.

Figure 6-4: Installing the Rack Rails
To install the chassis into a rack:
1. Confirm that chassis includes the inner rails (A) and rail extensions (B). Also,
confirm that the outer rails (C) are installed on the rack.
2. Line chassis rails (A and B) with the front of the rack rails (C).
3. Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both
sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when inserting). When the
server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the locking
tabs "click".
4. (Optional) Insert and tightening the thumbscrews that hold the front of the
server to the rack.
