be used and secured to the frame with a lock washer using a bolt or stud.
The connector should be properly sized to be suitable for the bold or stud,
the locking washer, the rating for the conducting wire used, and the
considered rating of the breaker. The intent is to ensure the frame is
electrically bonded to the PROTECTIVE EARTHING CONDUCTORS. The
hole that the bolt or stud goes into where the terminal conductor and the lock
washer contact should be free of any non-conductive material to allow for
metal to metal contact. All PROTECTIVE EARTHING CONDUCTORS
should terminate at this main protective earthing terminal or at points

Special caution and safety notices
This information describes special safety notices that apply to the Storwize V3700.
These notices are in addition to the standard safety notices supplied and address
specific issues relevant to the equipment provided.
General safety
When you service the Storwize V3700, follow general safety guidelines.
Use the following general rules to ensure safety to yourself and others:
v Observe good housekeeping in the area where the devices are kept during and
after maintenance.
v Follow the guidelines when lifting any heavy object:
1. Ensure that you can stand safely without slipping.
2. Distribute the weight of the object equally between your feet.
3. Use a slow lifting force. Never move suddenly or twist when you attempt to
lift.
4. Lift by standing or by pushing up with your leg muscles; this action removes
the strain from the muscles in your back. Do not attempt to lift any objects that
weigh more than 18 kg (40 lb) or objects that you think are too heavy for you.
xiv
Storwize V3700: Quick Installation Guide
v Do not perform any action that causes a hazard or that makes the equipment
unsafe.
v Before you start the device, ensure that other personnel are not in a hazardous
position.
v Place removed covers and other parts in a safe place, away from all personnel,
while you are servicing the unit.
v Keep your tool case away from walk areas so that other people will not trip over
it.
v Do not wear loose clothing that can be trapped in the moving parts of a device.
Ensure that your sleeves are fastened or rolled up above your elbows. If your
hair is long, fasten it.
v Insert the ends of your necktie or scarf inside clothing or fasten it with a
nonconducting clip, approximately 8 cm (3 in.) from the end.
v Do not wear jewelry, chains, metal-frame eyeglasses, or metal fasteners for your
clothing.
Remember: Metal objects are good electrical conductors.
v Wear safety glasses when you are: hammering, drilling, soldering, cutting wire,
attaching springs, using solvents, or working in any other conditions that might
be hazardous to your eyes.
v After service, reinstall all safety shields, guards, labels, and ground wires.
Replace any safety device that is worn or defective.
v Reinstall all covers correctly after you have finished servicing the unit.
Handling static-sensitive devices
Ensure that you understand how to handle devices that are sensitive to static
electricity.
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices and your system. To
avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective bags until you
are ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following
precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and possibly damage the
device.
v While the device is still in its antistatic bag, touch it to an unpainted metal part
of the system unit for at least two seconds. (This action removes static electricity
from the package and from your body.)
v Remove the device from its package and install it directly into your Storwize
V3700, without putting it down. If it is necessary to put the device down, place
it onto its static-protective bag. (If your device is an adapter, place it
component-side up.) Do not place the device onto the cover of the Storwize
V3700 or onto a metal table.
v Take additional care when you handle devices during cold weather because
heating reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

guidelines.
1
1
Installing a control enclosure only
If you are installing a control enclosure only, follow these guidelines.
Position the enclosure in the rack so that you can easily view it and access it for
servicing. Ensure that you locate the enclosure low enough for the rack to remain
stable and provide a way for two or more people to install and remove the
enclosure.
Installing a control enclosure and one or more expansion
enclosures
If you are installing a control enclosure plus one or more expansion enclosures,
follow these guidelines.
v Each Storwize V3700 enclosure to be installed requires 2U of rack space.
v Each assembled enclosure weighs more than 18kg. There must be sufficient
space at the front of the rack for two persons to carry the enclosure safely.
v Install all enclosures that constitute one system in contiguous positions in a rack.
Place the control enclosure at the top.
v Each control enclosure supports connection to up to four expansion enclosures.
If this system installation has fewer than four expansion enclosures, reserve
space directly below the system to allow future expansion.
v If a rack is to be only partially filled, install the enclosures low enough for the
rack to remain stable and enable easy access to the enclosures for servicing.
Adding an expansion enclosure to an existing system
If you are adding an expansion enclosure to an existing system, follow these
guidelines.
v You do not need to power off the system. You can add an expansion enclosure
while the system is operational.
v Add the first expansion enclosure directly below the control enclosure.
v Add the second expansion enclosure directly below the first, and so on.

Web browser requirements to access the management GUI
You must have a supported Web browser to access the management GUI.
The management GUI supports the following web browsers:
v Mozilla Firefox 18
v Mozilla Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) 17
v Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 8 and 9
v Google Chrome 24
IBM supports higher versions of the browsers as long as the vendors do not
remove or disable functionality that the product relies upon. For browser levels
higher than the versions that are certified with the product, customer support
accepts usage-related and defect-related service requests. As with operating system
and virtualization environments, if IBM support cannot re-create the issue in our
lab, we might ask the client to re-create the problem on a certified browser version
to determine whether a product defect exists. Defects are not accepted for cosmetic
differences between browsers or browser versions that do not affect the functional
behavior of the product. If a problem is identified in the product, defects are

accepted. If a problem is identified with the browser, IBM might investigate
potential solutions or work-arounds that the client can implement until a
permanent solution becomes available.
User name and password for system initialization
During the initialization procedure, you will need to log in to the Storwize
