(R003)
DANGER
Do not transport the rack via fork truck unless it is properly packaged,
secured on top of the supplied pallet. (R004)
DANGER
Main Protective Earth (Ground):
This symbol is marked on the frame of the rack.
The PROTECTIVE EARTHING CONDUCTORS should be terminated at that
point. A recognized or certified closed loop connector (ring terminal) should
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 bolt 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 marked with

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.
v Do not perform any action that causes a hazard or makes the equipment unsafe.
xiv
Storwize V5000: Quick Installation Guide
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 cannot 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
V5000, 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
V5000 or onto a metal table.
v Take additional care when you handle devices during cold weather. Indoor
humidity tends to decrease in cold weather, causing an increase in static
electricity.

Storwize V5000: Quick Installation Guide
Chapter 1. Before you begin the installation
Before you can begin installing your system, you must unpack and verify your
order and make other preparations.
The Quick Installation Guide contains a set of instructions to help you unpack and
install your system. The guide is divided into three chapters.
1. The steps in Chapter 1, “Before you begin the installation” (the chapter you are
now reading) involve verifying your order, becoming familiar with the
hardware component terminology, and ensuring that you have met the
environmental requirements.
2. The steps in Chapter 2, “Installing the hardware,” on page 13 involve installing
the hardware and attaching the data cables and power cords.
3. Chapter 3, “Configuring the system,” on page 29 helps you create your
configuration file and access the management GUI. The management GUI
guides you through the initial configuration process.
Important information:
v This guide presumes that you have read the planning information regarding
your physical environment that is available from the IBM Knowledge Center for
Storwize V5000.
v Ensure that any cables that you are supplying are available for installation.
Installation scenarios
Depending on your order, this documentation steps you through setting up your
system for the following scenarios:
v Setting up a new system that consists of a control enclosure only. In this case,
you are not installing any expansion enclosures.
v Setting up a new system that consists of a control enclosure and one or more
expansion enclosures.
v Adding an expansion enclosure to an existing system. In this case, you initially
installed a control enclosure (and, optionally, one or more expansion enclosures).
You want to add an expansion enclosure to your existing system. You do not
need to power off the system. You can add an expansion enclosure while the
system is operational.
v Adding a control enclosure (either by itself or with one or more expansion
enclosures) to an existing system. You do not need to power off the system. You
can add a control enclosure while the system is operational.
v Setting up a new system that consists of more than one control enclosure.
Install the first control enclosure and then the required expansion enclosures. For
each additional control enclosure, complete the setup as if you were adding it to
an existing system.
Table 5 on page 2 lists the steps for each scenario.

v Position the enclosure in the rack so that you can easily view it and access it for
servicing.
v Locate the enclosure low enough for the rack to remain stable.
v Ensure that you 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 V5000 enclosure to be installed requires 2U of rack space.
v Each assembled enclosure weighs more than 18 kg. Provide 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 in the middle of the rack.
v Each control enclosure supports connection to up to nine expansion enclosures
(four above the control enclosure and five below the control enclosure). If this
system installation has fewer than nine expansion enclosures, reserve space
directly above and 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 chain to an existing system
If you are adding an expansion enclosure chain to an existing system, follow these
guidelines.
v You do not need to power off the system. You can add an expansion enclosure

as shown in Figure 14 .
Note: A control enclosure can support up to 19 expansion enclosures (10 above
the control enclosure and 9 below the control enclosure).
4. If two control enclosures are installed, repeat this cabling procedure on the
second control enclosure and its expansion enclosures.
SAS cabling guidelines
When connecting SAS cables between enclosures, you must follow a list of
guidelines to ensure that your configuration is valid.
Orienting the connector
When inserting SAS cables, make sure the connector (Figure 15 on page 20) is
oriented correctly.
v The orientation of the connector must match the orientation of the port before
you push the connector into the port. The cable connector and socket are keyed,
and it is important that you have proper alignment of the keys when the cable is
inserted.
v The blue pull tab must be below the connector.
v Insert the connector gently until it clicks into place. If you feel resistance, the
connector is probably oriented the wrong way. Do not force it.
v When inserted correctly, the connector can only be removed by pulling the tab.
Chapter 2. Installing the hardware
19
v3500179
v When both ends of a SAS cable are inserted correctly, the green link LEDs next
to the connected SAS ports are lit.
Figure 15. SAS cable connectors
Guidelines
Be aware of the following guidelines when you attach the cables to the SAS ports.
v No more than ten expansion enclosures can be chained to port 3 of a node
canister. The expansion enclosures in this chain should be installed below the
control enclosure (as shown in Figure 16 on page 21).
v No more than nine expansion enclosures can be chained to port 4 of a node
canister. The expansion enclosures in this chain should be installed above the
control enclosure (as shown in Figure 16 on page 21).
v No cable can be connected between a port on a left canister and a port on a
right canister.

Connecting Ethernet cables to node canisters
To provide system management connectivity for your Storwize V5000 system, you
must connect Ethernet cables to Ethernet port 1 of each node canister in the control
enclosure. This connection can optionally also be used for iSCSI host connection.
Ethernet port 2 can optionally be connected to provide a second system
management address, a second iSCSI host connection, or both.
Procedure
To install the Ethernet cables, complete the following steps.
1. Connect Ethernet port 1 of each node canister in the system to the IP network
that will provide connection to the system management interfaces, as shown in
Figure 17. This port can also be used for iSCSI connectivity to the system by
