The information in this document is subject to change without notice. Before You Begin SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Before getting started, please read the following important cautions: • All cautions and warnings on the equipment or in the manuals should be noted. • Most electronic components are sensitive to electrical static discharge, therefore, be sure to ground yourself at all times when installing the internal components. • Use a grounding wrist strap and place all electronic components in static‐shielded devices. Grounding wrist straps can be purchased in any electronic supply store. • Be sure to turn off the power and then disconnect the power cords from your system before performing any installation or servicing. A sudden surge of power could damage sensitive electronic components. • Do not open the system’s top cover. If opening the cover for maintenance is a must, only a trained technician should do so. Integrated circuits on computer boards are sensitive to static electricity. Before handling a board or integrated circuit, touch an unpainted portion of the system unit chassis for a few seconds. This will help to discharge any static electricity on your body. • Place this equipment on a reliable surface when install. A drop or fall could cause injury. • Please keep this equipment from away humidity. • Carefully mount the equipment into the rack, in such manner, that it won’t be hazardous due to uneven mechanical loading. 3 XJ3000-4603 User Manual
• This equipment is to be installed for operation in an environment with maximum ambient temperature below 35°C. • The openings on the enclosure are for air convection to protect the equipment from overheating. DO NOT COVER THE OPENINGS. • Never pour any liquid into ventilation openings. This could cause fire or electrical shock. • Make sure the voltage of the power source is within the specification on the label when connecting the equipment to the power outlet. The current load and output power of loads shall be within the specification. • This equipment must be connected to reliable grounding before using. Pay special attention to power supplied other than direct connections, e.g. using of power strips. • Place the power cord out of the way of foot traffic. Do not place anything over the power cord. The power cord must be rated for the product, voltage and current marked on the product’s electrical ratings label. The voltage and current rating of the cord should be greater than the voltage and current rating marked on the product. • If the equipment is not used for a long time, disconnect the equipment from mains to avoid being damaged by transient over‐voltage. • Never open the equipment. For safety reasons, only qualified service personnel should open the equipment. • If one of the following situations arise, the equipment should be checked by service personnel:  The power cord or plug is damaged.  Liquid has penetrated the equipment.  The equipment has been exposed to moisture.  The equipment does not work well or will not work according to its user manual.  The equipment has been dropped and/or damaged.  The equipment has obvious signs of breakage.  Please disconnect this equipment from the AC outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid or detergent for cleaning. The use of a moisture sheet or cloth is recommended for cleaning. Product features and specifications are subject to change without notice.

1.3. 8088 with Zoning Configuration and 8088 port definition WARNING:
Adaptec (6445/6405/5445/5085/51645), ATTO (R380/R680), 3ware (9750-8e) SAS cards
can not work T10 zoning function with 4U60.
LSI / Intel /Areca SAS cards can work T10 zoning well with 4U60 JBOD. There are 3 kinds of Zoning options can be implemented by Command Line Interface operation (see Paragraph 3.3: Zoning configuration set up ). By using the zoning option, four of 8088 ports will have variety of definitions for upstream (uplink) or downstream (downlink). It will be defined by firmware routing setting such as table routing “downstream” and subtractive routing “upstream.” Subtractive and Table route definition: 1. Whenever the port is defined to subtractive routing and table routing ports both can be connected with SAS HBAs/Raid controllers of host. 2. Subtractive routing (upstream) port defined: it has to be connected with table routing (downstream) port of other JBOD 3. Table routing (downstream) port defined: It has to be connected with subtractive routing (upstream) port of other JBOD. Zone count 1: 60 drives per zone. The 4x SFF8088 ports, first port for upstream and three ports for downstream ports. Zone count 1 8088 port definition Port 1, Port 2, Port 3, and Port 4 can be connected with SAS HBAs/Raid controllers of host. Port 1 is defined to be a subtractive routing (upstream) port which can be connected with table routing (downstream) port of other JBOD. 9 XJ3000-4603 User Manual
Port 2, Port 3, and Port 4 are defined to be a table routing (downstream) ports which can be connected with subtractive routing (upstream) port of other JBOD. (see below figure ) Zone count 2: 30 drives per zone. Two Host channels supported, Port 1 & port 2 supports Host A, Port 3 & port 4 supports Host B. Port 1 and Port 3 are defined to be subtractive routing (upstream) ports which can be connected with SAS HBAs or RAID controllers of host. Port 2 and Port 4 are defined to be table routing (downstream) ports which can be connected with subtractive routing (upstream) port of other JBOD. (see below ports connection) 10 XJ3000-4603 User Manual
Zone count 4: 15 drives per zone. Four hosts connected . Port 1, Port 2, Port 3 and Port 4 are defined to be subtractive routing (upstream) ports which can be connected with SAS HBAs or RAID controllers of hosts. There is no table routing (downstream) port to be configured. 11 XJ3000-4603 User Manual

(2) Secure fan module retaining screw. 2.5 Installing Slide Rail (1) Pull the slide open. Then press the trigger down as shown on the drawing, and pull the chassis (inner) member out. (2) Mount the chassis(inner) member to the chassis 17 XJ3000-4603 User Manual
Align the rectangular cut‐outs on chassis (inner) member to the pre‐formed bayonets on the side of chassis. Secure the chassis (inner) member with H‐207 screw from standard screw kit after all the bayonets go through the cut‐outs and properly engage. NOTE: Bayonet on chassis shall be pre‐formed as per the recommended dimension and location. (3) Attach the cabinet (outer) member to the rail Insert the stag into the upper and lower square holes on EIA rail from the back of rail. Push the safety lock forward to secure the bracket. It is important to check if the safety lock is in unlocked position before mounting the brackets. 18 XJ3000-4603 User Manual
(4) Mount the chassis into the cabinet Insert the chassis (inner) member into the cabinet member as shown on the drawing. It is important to check if the ball retainer is in fully open position before install the chassis. It might cause catastrophic damage to the chassis if ball retainer is not in fully open position while mounting the chassis. While you are pushing chassis back to the cabinet, you need to release the slide from locking position by pressing the trigger down. 19 XJ3000-4603 User Manual
