Before you begin
Read this information before beginning your installation.
Before you begin your installation, print and complete a Configuration worksheet for your storage system
to gather the information that the software setup process requires. The configuration worksheet is
provided in the Data ONTAP Software Setup Guide for 7-Mode for your version of Data ONTAP, which is
available on the IBM® N series support website:
www.ibm.com/storage/support/nseries/
If you are configuring a storage system as part of a high-availability (or active/active) configuration,
some information types must be unique for each storage system mode in the configuration, and some
information types must be identical on both storage system nodes. If you have a high-availability (or
active/active) configuration, IBM recommends that you print and complete two copies of the
configuration worksheet, one for each system node.
Note: In the Data ONTAP 7.2 and 7.3 release families, the term active/active configuration (or active/active
pair) refers to a pair of storage systems or gateways (sometimes called nodes or controller modules)
configured to serve data for each other if one of the two systems stops functioning. In the Data ONTAP
8.x 7-Mode release family, this functionality is referred to as a high-availability (HA) configuration or an HA
pair.

Attention:
Observe the following rules and restrictions when installing an N series system in a standard IBM 19-inch
(48.26 cm) equipment rack with mounting rails:
4
DANGER
To avoid hazardous conditions due to uneven mechanical loading, always install the heaviest
devices in the bottom of the rack cabinet. Always install servers and optional devices starting from
the bottom of the rack cabinet. (R001 part 1 of 2)
Do not exceed the maximum storage limit for your gateway system.

n620007
Left rail
1. Loosen (but do not remove) the four rail adjustment screws on each rail.
2. Use the figure on the next page for reference. At the front of the rack, position the right-hand rail into
the rack at the appropriate EIA location. Make sure that the two locating pins seat properly. The
bottom of the rail should line up with the bottom EIA boundary.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Note: When installed, each N6200 series gateway enclosure will occupy a 3U space.
Using two silver pan head M5 screws, attach the rail to the front of the rack using holes H3 and H7.
Tighten these screws with a screwdriver.
At the rear of the rack, position the rail at the same EIA location used in step 2. Make sure that the
locating pins seat properly. Using two silver pan head M5 screws, attach the rail to the rack using
holes H2 and H8. Tighten these screws with a screwdriver.
Tighten the four rail adjustment screws on the installed rail.
Repeat steps 2 through 4 for the left-hand rail.
If you are installing a dual-enclosure model, repeat steps 1 through 5 for the second enclosure.

Installing the gateway in the rack
30.9-36.4 kg (68-80 lbs)
n6200021
Use these instructions to install the N6200 series gateway in the rack.
CAUTION:
The weight of this part or unit is between 30.9 and 36.4 kg (68 and 80 lb). It takes three
persons to safely lift this part or unit.
1. If attached, carefully remove the front bezel of the N6200 series gateway with two hands by grasping
the openings on either side of the bezel.
2. From the front of the rack, place the storage system onto the rails and slide it in until the front
mounting bracket of the storage system is flush with the frame rails of the rack.
3. At the front of the rack, using four silver pan head M5 screws in the H2 and H8 holes, secure the
system unit to the rack by threading the screws through the system unit bracket and the rack frame
rail into the threaded rail nuts. Tighten the screws using a screwdriver.
4. Replace the front bezel of the N6200 series gateway by snapping it back onto the storage system
chassis.
5. From the rear of the rack, attach the rear tie-down bracket in the orientation shown to the rails using
four M5 flat head screws. The tie-down bracket should fit over the rear of the system unit.

Attaching the cable management arms
Each N6200 series controller module and Input/Output expansion module has two slots for attaching
cable management arms.
Using the following instructions, attach two cable management arms to each controller module and
Input/Output expansion module.
1. At the rear of the system, align a cable management arm with the slot on the left side of the module,
as shown in Figure 6. Make sure that the release button on the cable management arm faces towards
the power supply. The side of arm with the text “Inside” printed on it should face the interior of
module.

Figure 6. Attaching the cable management arm
2. Push the cable management arm into the slot on the module until it locks into place.
3. Repeat these steps to attach a second cable management arm on the right side of each controller and
Input/Output expansion module.
4. For dual-enclosure models, repeat these steps for all modules in the second enclosure.
Installation and setup instructions

Installing the power cables
Use these instructions to install the power cables for the N6200 series gateway.
1. Make sure all power supply switches on the N6200 series gateway and any attached expansion units
are in the Off position.
2. For all storage systems that are being installed, connect the power cords to all power supply unit
(PSU1 and PSU2) power receptacles using power cord retainer clips as shown below, making sure to
slide the clip all the way forward on the plug.
n620024
3. Connect the power cords to the power sources, making sure that the two power supplies are
connected to separate AC sources. This ensures redundant power.
Attention: Do not power on the system at this time.
Note: The N6200 series storage system has no requirement or provision for grounding.
Connecting the N6200 series gateway to a network
Use these instructions to connect the N6200 series gateway to a network.
Figure 7 on page 9 identifies the ports on your N6200 series gateway. Refer to Figure 8 on page 9 for
information about how to connect the N6200 series gateway to the network. Refer to the Gateway
Implementation Guide for your storage subsystem and review the following planning and setup
information for information about how to connect and boot your gateway.
Note: Use the cable management arms and hook-and-loop fasteners to organize your cabling.
