Chapter 2
System Safety
2-1Overview
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 set up
and operational within a minimal amount of time. This quick set up assumes that you
are an experienced technician, familiar 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 ventilated. Avoid areas where heat,
electrical noise and electromagnetic fields are generated.
You will also need it placed near at least one grounded power outlet. When configured, the SC747 chassis includes a redundant power supply and requires two
grounded outlets.
2-3 Preparing for Setup
The SC747 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.
2-1
SC747 Chassis Manual
2-4 Electrical Safety Precautions
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the SC747 from damage:
•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 electrical
outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly remove power from
the system.
•Do not work alone when working with high-voltage components.
•Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or in-
stalling 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.
•When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is fa-
miliar with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the power, if
necessary.
•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.
•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.
•The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
•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.
2-2
SC747 Chassis Manual
•Handle used batteries carefully. Do not damage the battery in any way; a damaged battery may release hazardous materials into the environment. Do not
discard a used battery in the garbage or a public landfill. Please comply with
the regulations set up by your local hazardous waste management agency to
dispose of your used battery properly.
•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 General Safety Precautions
•Keep the area around the chassis clean and free of clutter.
•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.
•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.
•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.
•After accessing the inside of the system, close the system and secure it to
the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all connections have
been made.
2-3
SC747 Chassis Manual
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:
•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.
•Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic bags
until ready for use.
•Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic
bag.
•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.
•Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or contacts.
•When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not
in use.
•For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the serverboard.

System Interface
4-1Overview
There are several LEDs on the control panel as well as others on the drive carriers
to keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the system as well as the
activity and health of specific components. SC747 models have two buttons on
the chassis a control panel, a power on/off button and a reset button. This chapter
explains the meanings of all LED indicators and the appropriate response you may
need to take.
Figure 4-1: Front LEDs
4-1
SC747 Chassis Manual
4-2 Control Panel Buttons
There are two push-buttons located on the front of the chassis. These are a power
on/off button and a reset button.
•Power: The main power switch is used to apply or remove power from the power
supply to the server system. Turning off system power with this button removes
the main power but keeps standby power supplied to the system. Therefore,
you must unplug system before servicing.
•Reset: The reset button is used to reboot the system.
4-3 Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC747chassis has five LEDs. These
LEDs provide you with critical information related to different parts of the system.
This section explains what each LED indicates when illuminated and any corrective
action you may need to take.
•HDD: Indicates IDE channel activity. SAS/SATA drive, and/or DVD-ROM drive
activity when flashing.
•NIC1: Indicates network activity on GLAN1 when flashing.
4-2
SC747 Chassis Manual
•NIC2: Indicates network activity on GLAN2 when flashing.
•Overheat/Fan Fail: When this LED flashes it indicates a fan failure. When
continuously on (not flashing) it indicates an overheat condition, which may be
caused by cables obstructing the airflow in the system or the ambient room
temperature being too warm. Check the routing of the cables and make sure
all fans are present and operating normally. You should also check to make
sure that the chassis covers are installed. Finally, verify that the heatsinks are
installed properly. This LED will remain flashing or on as long as the overheat
condition exists.
!
•Power Fail: Indicates a power failure to the system's power supply units.
4-3
SC747 Chassis Manual
4-4 Drive Carrier LEDs
Your chassis uses SAS/SATA drives.
SAS/SATA Drives
Each SAS/SATA drive carrier has two LEDs.
•Green: Each Serial ATA drive carrier has a green LED. When illuminated, this
green LED (on the front of the SATA drive carrier) indicates drive activity. A connection to the SATA backplane enables this LED to blink on and off when that
particular drive is being accessed.
•Red: The red LED indicates a SAS/SATA drive failure. If one of the SAS/SATA
drives fail, you should be notified by your system management software.
