Chapter 1
Site Planning Overview
1-
Careful selection, planning, and preparation of the installation site for your ftServer
system are important activities that can contribute directly to the proper operation and
reliability of your system. Site planning ensures that you provide:
• A location suitable for the reliable operation of computer equipment
• Adequate space for the system, its servicing, and its associated components,
cables, and furniture
• An environment that maintains proper air cleanliness, and required temperature
and humidity ranges
• Electrical power sources that meet the system’s requirements
• Provisions for network connectivity (as required) and communications over an
analog telephone line
Before installing your system, make sure that:
• You are familiar with the information in Chapter 2.
• Your installation site meets the requirements described in this site planning guide.
Use the checklist in “Site Planning Checklist” on page 1-3 to track your site
preparation progress. The checklist provides a step-by-step breakdown of the
specific activities involved in site planning.
For a list of additional documentation, see “System Documentation” on page 1-6.
During the site planning and preparation processes, work closely with your facilities
group or contractor to determine space, power, and environmental requirements and
to provide a suitable location with sufficient electrical power, HVAC capabilities, and
network and telephone connections.
After moving the system to the installation site, inform the Stratus Customer Assistance
Center (CAC) or your authorized Stratus service representative that the system is
ready to be installed. For more information about the CAC, see “Getting Help” in the
Preface.
If your system is covered by a service agreement and you need help with site planning,
call the CAC or your authorized Stratus service representative.
Site Planning Overview
1-1
Site Planning for Fault-Tolerant Systems
Site Planning for Fault-Tolerant Systems
In addition to usual site planning task, such as planning sufficient AC power and
providing network connections, take into consideration the following specific
fault-tolerant features of ftServer systems:
• Lockstep technology in ftServer systems means that the system contains
redundant hardware.
In the event of a component malfunction, the partner component is an active spare
that continues normal operation. The failed component can then be removed and
replaced without loss of data or service.
In addition to planning for the duplicated power supplies, fans, and disk drives,
often supplied by other servers, you need to plan for replicated core system
components including motherboards, processors, memory, I/O buses, and I/O
adapters.
Consequently, site planning includes planning for pairs of:
– CPU enclosures, PCI console assemblies, and storage enclosures
– Ethernet network ports
– PCI adapters
– Power inlets
• ftServer systems can connect to the Stratus ActiveService Network (ASN).
Connecting a system to the ASN allows the CAC or your authorized Stratus service
representative to remotely diagnose, troubleshoot, and resolve problems online.
To enable connectivity to the ASN, the ftServer system contains a pair of ftServer
Access Adapters.
These adapters connect to the ASN over an internal modem and provide ASN
connectivity even when the operating system is not operational. The adapter also
allows internal administrators to remotely service the system over an IP network,
regardless of the state of the operating system.
Consequently, site planning includes planning for network and modem connections
for the ftServer Access Adapters.

To plan for your ftServer system, determine whether the system is shipped in a cabinet
supplied by Stratus or you are supplying a rack.
If you order a Stratus cabinet, the system components are mounted and shipped in the
cabinet. “Some Typical ftServer System Configurations” on page 2-13 shows some
ways in which the components are mounted in 24U and 38U cabinets supplied by
Stratus.
If you do not purchase the Stratus cabinet, the rack-mountable components, shelves,
cables, and other hardware are shipped in separate packages. You can install the
components in a rack you obtain from an independent supplier, provided the rack
meets the requirements described in “Using Your Own Rack” on page 2-4.
Determine which components the system contains, and how many of each. The
following components can be mounted in the cabinet or rack and obtain power from the
power distribution strip in the cabinet or rack:
• CPU enclosures (two or three per system)
• PCI console assembly
ftServer 5240 systems contain two core I/O enclosures, and optionally two
expansion enclosures. ftServer 6500 systems contain two core and two expansion
I/O enclosures.
• Ultra160 storage enclosure (one or two in each ftServer 5240 or 6500 system)
• 1U monitor unit
You place the following components on a nearby table or desktop and connect them to
power sources independent from the cabinet or rack:
• Table-top monitor, or your own monitor, keyboard, and mouse
You can place the monitor, and a mouse and keyboard on top of a 24U cabinet.
• Tape drives
• An uninterruptible power source (UPS)

Using Your Own Rack
Using Your Own Rack
Instead of using one of the Stratus-supplied cabinets, you can provide your own
EIA-310-D 19-inch rack, which you obtain from an independent supplier, provided it
meets the requirements described in “Rack Requirements for ftServer 5240 and 6500
Systems” on page 2-5
NOTE
Stratus personnel or your authorized Stratus service
representative will install the system in the rack.
The rack-mounting components shipped with your ftServer system are shipped as
follows:
• For each enclosure, the adjustable mounting-rail components are included in the
box containing the enclosure.
• Power strips, and the components necessary to mount the power strips in the rack,
are shipped as a kit. Country-specific power cables are also included.
!
WARNING
Use only the power cords you receive from Stratus.
DO NOT MODIFY THE POWER CORDS you receive
from Stratus.
Failure to comply with this warning will void agency
certification.
Failure to comply with this warning can cause a fire
hazard.
• Filler panels, bezels, and cabinet accessories are included.
• If a 1U LCD monitor unit has been ordered from Stratus, the appropriate
rail-mounting components are shipped with the monitor unit.

Using Your Own Rack
Rack Requirements for ftServer 5240 and 6500 Systems
The rack must comply with 19 in. EIA-310D standards. If you are using a 24U rack,
make sure that the full 24U is free for ftServer components; if you are using a 38U rack,
make sure that the full 38U is free for ftServer components.
Make sure that the rack provides adequate ventilation by conforming to the following
requirements:
• Air flows through the rack from front to back.
• Air does not recirculate within the cabinet.
• Vents are evenly distributed on front and rear doors and comprise at least 68% of
the surface area.
NOTE
If your rack does not have vented front and rear doors,
Stratus recommends that you remove the doors from the
rack while the ftServer system is operating.
Make sure that the rack meet the following specifications:
• The overall width, including side panels, is at least 23.62 in. (600 mm).
A width of 27.56 in. (70.00 cm) is recommended for ease in cabling PCI adapters.
• The overall height is at least 24U (42 in., 1.7m).
• The overall depth is at least 40.00 in. (1.016m).
• The front vertical EIA rails are positioned at least 2.5 in. (6.40 cm) from the inside
surface of the front door to allow room for the bezels, and are spaced between
24.5 in. and 30 in. (62.23 cm and 76 cm) apart.
• Each of the rear vertical rails have enough room so that you can mount one power
strip bracket. A rear door, if present, must be at least 7.00 in. (17.78 cm) from the
rear vertical EIA rail and have no locks.
The clearance allows room for the power-strip mounting bracket and gives the
PCI-to-CPU cables the minimum allowable bend radius. Do not mount any
equipment in this space between the rear rails and the rear door.
Without locks on the rear door, you can quickly access the breakers at the power
strip.
• Nothing intrudes on the 19-in. EIA-310D standards that would interfere with
removing equipment from the front or rear of the cabinet.
• The rack has openings of at least 65 square in. (419.4 square cm) at the top and
bottom rear of the cabinets to accommodate cables.
System Overview for Site Planning
2-5
Using Your Own Rack
Smaller openings might not accommodate the cables on a fully-loaded rack or
cabinet with a system that contains a number of PCI adapters, particularly if the
system contains U486 Eight-Port Asynchronous PCI Adapters and a full set of
cables.
• Front and rear vertical EIA rails have the EIA universal square-hole pattern (not the
EIA wide square-hole or round-hole pattern).
• Vertical cabinet mounting rails accept and use 10-32 cage nuts and mounting
hardware.
• Vertical cabinet mounting rails are plated or painted with conductive paint to ensure
continuity for grounding between installed equipment.
• Cable management brackets are provided to constrain data and power cords so
that the cables do not interfere with the air flow out the rear of the enclosures.
• The rack provides enough stability so that the system components pass Telcordia
GR-63-CORE Section 5.4.2 regulations for operational vibration.
• To prevent current leakage, all components are grounded together through the
vertical mounting rails, to the cabinet frame, and then to ground.
Make sure that power strips are also grounded through the cabinet to ground.
• 24U racks can support at least 500.00 lb (226.80 kg) to support only allowed
configurations and components for a 24U cabinet.
This payload capacity does not support any upgrades or additions. To ensure
the ability to add components, make sure that the rack can support 1,100.00 lb
(499.00 kg).
• 38U racks have a minimum payload capacity of 900 lb. (408.2 kg) to support only
allowed configurations and components for a 38U cabinet.
This payload capacity does not support any upgrades or additions. To ensure
the ability to add components, make sure that the rack can support 1,500.00 lb
(680.4 kg).

The site planning and preparation process ensures that the installation site provides:
• A suitable climate and sufficient space for the system
• Appropriate electrical power
Take into consideration the number and types of outlets needed and the lengths of
the power cords.
• Required network and telephone line connections
Take into consideration the LAN, WAN, and analog phone line connections
needed, and the lengths and types of interface cables. Some of the cables are
shipped with the system or optional component, and you must provide some other
cables.
When you have documented the requirements for the system you are receiving, you
can use the cabinet templates, options and accessories templates, and a site layout
grid to help you create a floor plan for your installation.
Space and HVAC Requirements
Select a site for an ftServer system that is suitable for the reliable operation of
computer equipment, such as a climate-controlled, dust-free office or computer room.
!
CAUTION
Do not place the system in an area of high electrostatic
discharge. Static electricity may damage components.
Do not locate components near transformers or other
electromagnetic devices.
Site Requirements
3-1
Space and HVAC Requirements
!
CAUTION
Dust buildup in the system can impede air circulation and
heat transfer, causing components to become less
reliable as the ambient temperature rises.
To allow sufficient air circulation and space for servicing the system, locate the front
and rear of the system at least 2.5 ft (0.76m) away from walls and other obstructions,
and 20 in. (50.8 cm) from the top of the cabinet or rack to the ceiling.
If the site has an elevated floor, make sure that the floor has cutouts for routing cables.
Provide a table or desktop for external devices such as a telephone, tape drives, and
a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

The selected site must provide a climate-controlled environment that maintains the
temperature and humidity requirements of the system.
Work with your facilities people and/or HVAC contractor to ensure that your air
conditioning system can maintain the temperature and humidity ranges required by the
cabinet, system components, and external tape drives.
The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) requirements for the system
depend on the type and number of components.
Table 3-1 provides a worksheet to calculate the thermal dissipation rates for your
ftServer system and its components.
NOTES
1. The value for the UPS is provided here for estimation
purposes only. Check the manufacturer’s
documentation for the actual values. See the
http://www.apcc.com Web page for details.
2. Make adjustments for any user-supplied components.
To calculate heat dissipation rates
1. In the Quantity column, write the number of each type of component.
2. For each component, multiply the entry in the Quantity column by the number in
the Heat Dissipation column, and enter the result in the BTUs/hr Subtotal column.
3. Add all the results in the BTUs/hr Subtotal column, and enter the sum on the
bottom line labeled Total BTUs/Hour. This value indicates the power and HVAC

Electrical Power Requirements
The power requirements for the system depend on the type and number of
components. A minimum of two separate and independent AC power sources are
required; Using an UPS for one of the power sources provides the greatest fault
tolerance in the event of a power failure. Other power sources are needed for
components installed outside the cabinet.
The power service must be properly wired and grounded according to local standards
and regulations.
For more information, see:
• Chapter 4 for information about connecting power cords to your system

Calculating Power Requirements
To calculate the power requirements for your ftServer system, determine the exact
configuration and use the worksheet in Table 3-3.
To calculate power requirements
1. In the Quantity column, write the number of each type of component.
2. Multiply the entry in the Quantity column by the number in the Power column, and
enter the result in the Watts Subtotal column.
3. Add all the results in the Watts Subtotal column, and enter the sum on the bottom
line labeled Total Watts. This value indicates the power and HVAC requirements for
your system.
NOTES
1. Make adjustments for any user-supplied components.
2. The power requirement numbers are based on
maximum configurations of ftServer 5240 and
ftServer 6500 systems.

Power Cord Lengths and Plug Types
When choosing a location for the system, consider the length of the power cords and
the location of power receptacles. The cord lengths determine how close the cabinet
or rack must be to the power sources. If the cabinet or rack is located within 5 ft (1.5m)
of the power sources, you can connect the shorter cord to the lower power strip and the
longer cord to the upper power strip (if your system has an upper power strip). If the
cabinet is located from 5 ft to 10 ft (1.5m to 3m) away from the power sources, use the
longer power cords instead.
NOTE
The cities of Chicago, Illinois and Los Angeles, California
in the United States require that no more than 6 ft of the
power cord extend from the cabinet to the power source.
!
WARNING
Place all power cords out of the way of foot traffic.
APC supplies power cords for the UPS. Stratus supplies power cords for cabinet power
strips and external tape drives
!
WARNING
Use only the power cords you receive from Stratus.
DO NOT MODIFY THE POWER CORDS you receive
from Stratus.
Failure to comply with this warning will void agency
certification.
Failure to comply with this warning can cause a fire
hazard.
The power strips in the cabinets contain four permanently attached power jumpers that
you connect to the CPUs, the PCI console assemblies, and the first SCSI storage
enclosure. The power strips also contain two power receptacles; you plug the optional
1U rack-mountable monitor unit into one of the receptacles on the A-side power strip.
A second set of power strips is required on the top of the cabinet to connect a second
system (in a 38U cabinet) and an additional SCSI storage enclosure. Stratus supplies
labels you can attach to the power cords to identify A- and B-side jumpers.

Network and Telephone Line Requirements
Network and Telephone Line Requirements
ftServer 5240 and ftServer 6500 systems have the following network and telephone
communications requirements:
• A minimum of two Ethernet connections for fault-tolerant network connectivity
• Optionally, two more Ethernet connections to connect the ftServer Access
Adapters to the network
NOTE
To ensure adequate network performance between the
ftServer system and its clients, connect the ftServer
Access Adapters to a different network than the network
that connects clients to the ftServer system. Avoid a
network configuration that lets traffic be routed to the
ftServer system through the ftServer Access Adapters.
• One telephone line connected to a telephone to call the CAC or your authorized
Stratus service representative for help
• One of the following to connect the system to the ActiveService Network (ASN):
– One analog telephone line for each system
– One analog telephone line for each ftGateway group
An ftGateway group requires that one ftServer system be set up as a gateway
for ASN connectivity. Each ftGateway group is limited to a maximum of 20
ftServer systems. All ftServer Access Adapters in each system in a group must
connect to the same physical Ethernet subnetwork.
See “ftGateway Phone Line Requirements” on page 3-14 for more information
about the site requirements for implementing a gateway for SSN connectivity.
You use the supplied two-way (Y-style) connector to connect the PCMCIA
modems on the ftServer Access Adapters to this analog telephone line.
NOTE
A dedicated phone line provides the most reliable service.
SSN calls routed through a PBX might be slow due to load
on the PBX, or might not complete successfully because
the calls can become disconnected. If you must use a
PBX, do not route the telephone extension through a
switchboard; instead, provide a direct-dial analog number.
Site Requirements
3-13
Network and Telephone Line Requirements
You may need to arrange for other network connections, depending on how the system
will be used and what networks the system will connect to. Stratus has qualified
asynchronous adapters to connect the ftServer system to various types of networks. If
you have a unique network requirement, Stratus Professional Services can work with
you to meet that requirement.
ftGateway Phone Line Requirements
Multiple ftServer systems at a single site can share a single telephone connection to
the SSN by implementing an ftGateway group. The systems in the group must be
connected to a single physical Ethernet subnetwork. One system acts as a gateway
for SSN connectivity; this system requires an analog telephone line that connects to the
PCMCIA modem. Other systems in the gateway group, gateway slaves, connect to the
gateway system over the network. In this case, Ethernet connections are required for
each ftServer Access Adapter, but only two analog telephone lines are required for
each site.
ftGateway Network Requirements
The option of one analog telephone line for each ftGateway group requires that one
ftServer system be set up as a gateway for ASN connectivity. Each ftGateway group is
limited to a maximum of 20 ftServer systems. All systems in a group must connect to
the same subnetwork over the system Ethernet port, over Ethernet adapter cards, or
through ftServer Access Adapters. Make sure that only layer 1 and layer 2 devices
separate the gateway and slave systems. During a connection, the gateway system
assigns the slave system a temporary IP address from an IP address range
reserved by Stratus and uses that address for all traffic. Using ftServer Access Adapter
cards provides the highest level of manageability by allowing the system to be serviced
even when the operating system is not operational.
For more information, see, “ftGateway Phone Line Requirements” on page 3-14.
NOTE
A dedicated phone line provides the most reliable service.
ASN calls routed through a PBX might be slow due to load
on the PBX, or might not complete successfully because
the calls can become disconnected. If you must use a
PBX, do not route the telephone extension through a
switchboard; instead, provide a direct-dial analog number.

Creating a Floor Plan
Use the cabinet templates in Figure 3-1, the component templates in Figure 3-2, and
the site layout grids in Figure 3-3 (nonmetric) or Figure 3-4 (metric) to lay out your
ftServer system installation site.
On the layout grid, outline the room where the system will be installed, and then
photocopy the templates in Figure 3-1, cut them out, and arrange them so that they
represent your system configuration. The shading on the templates indicates the
required access and servicing area. Use the site layout grid to plan and document
space, power plug location and type, cable length, and cable routing requirements.
When determining the placement of the system and its external components, consider
the available power cord and interface cable lengths, and the locations of power
outlets, phone jacks, and Ethernet jacks, switches, and/or hubs. Include the cabinet or
rack, any external components, and all receptacles and jacks in the sketch.
NOTE
Make sure that all cords and cables are long enough to
reach between their respective components and
connectors.

Power Connections
4-
Power is distributed to the ftServer system by power strips mounted inside the
Stratus-supplied cabinet or your rack. You can connect power to the power strips using
a UPS or without using an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
For fault tolerance, the ftServer system must be powered by two independent AC
power sources: one source connected to one (A-side) power strip, and the other source
connected to a second (B-side) power strip. Stratus recommends, for system reliability,
that you use a UPS as one of the sources. If the rack or cabinet contains a second pair
of CPU enclosures, you must provide a separate UPS for each A-side power strip.
Stratus has qualified the American Power Conversion Corporation (APC) Matrix 5000
UPS model for use with ftServer 5200- and 6500-series systems. Site planning
information for the customer-supplied UPS is of a general nature only. For detailed
information about the UPS, see the manufacturer’s documentation.
See Appendix A for site wiring information and Chapter 3 for system power
requirements.
ftServer Power Distribution
Power strips mounted inside the cabinet or rack distribute power to the ftServer system.
Each power strip is connected to external power sources by external power cords
supplied by Stratus. These power cords are available in a variety of country-specific
ratings and plug types. For a list of external power cords, see “Power Cord Lengths and
Plug Types” on page 3-9.
Power strips for ftServer 5240 and 6500 systems are rated for 16A.
Cabinets or racks require a solid ground wire. The ground wire (AW-001075) is shipped
with the system and should be installed at the installation site by an electrician.
!
WARNING
Current leakages can occur if a ground is not
established on systems that use four 10A power
strips connected to power sources over 200 VAC.
Power Connections

Connecting Power to a System without a UPS
Connecting Power to a System without a UPS
For a minimally configured ftServer system, the rack or cabinet has two power strips
(A and B), each with its own power cord. For fault tolerance, the two power cords must
be plugged into two separate branch circuits from two independent power sources (see
Figure 4-1).
The two power sources should be as electrically independent of each other as the
installation site allows. The two power sources must at least be powered by separate
distribution transformers, and if possible, be independent of each other beyond that
level. The more electrical separation between the two power sources, the less likely
they will both fail at the same time. Due to redundancy in the ftServer system, power to
either side of the cabinet or rack will keep the system in operation.

sources through two exclusive branch circuits. The two power cords from side B
connect to the other power source through two other exclusive branch circuits.

• The MX5000 UPS is for use in North America, parts of Latin America, and Saudi
Arabia.
• The MX5000J UPS is for use in Japan.
• The MX5000W UPS is for use in most other locations worldwide, including Eastern
and Western Europe, the Middle East, China, India, Asia, Australia, the South
Pacific, and parts of Latin America.
For systems that require only two power strips, connect one power cord to the UPS,
and a second power cord to another power source.
Expanded systems, for example, systems containing additional storage, require four
power strips; connect two power cords from side A to the UPS, and the two power cords
from side B to another power source.
Two systems in a single rack or cabinet require four power strips. Each system requires
its own UPS. Connect each power cord from side A to a separate UPS, and connect
the two power cords from side B to another power source.
Connect the UPS and the branch circuits for side B to independent power sources.
The UPS communicates with the system through a serial port on its rear panel.
To connect the UPS serial port to one of the system’s front panel USB ports, use a
serial extension cable and a serial-to-USB converter that you can purchase from
American Power Conversion (APC). Use the following information to order the serial
extension cable:
• The serial extension cable is 15-ft (4.6m) long and is APC part number 940-1500A.
• The USB-serial converter is APC part number AP9585.
APC can be reached at the following mailing or Internet addresses:

Appendix A
Electrical Circuit and
Wiring Information
A-
You should provide electrical circuit and wiring information to the contractor or facilities
personnel responsible for wiring the power at the system installation site. The
information you need to provide includes:
• The site’s fault protection requirements
• Important grounding considerations
• Circuit wiring diagrams for different types of AC service
• Electrical power connector types
Fault Protection Requirements
Each customer-replaceable unit (CRU) in the ftServer system contains fault/overload
current protection. However, the system relies on the power distribution system at your
site for protection against potential faults in the power cords and the wiring in the
system base. You must use circuit breakers in each power distribution branch feeding
the system.
Grounding Considerations
The system obtains an earth reference ground through the power cords attached to the
system. Similarly, each peripheral device connected to the system obtains ground
through its power cord. For each peripheral device, you must ensure that a
high-integrity safety-ground conductor is installed as part of the wiring system (in
accordance with U.S. national electric code NFPA 70, or the equivalent). The
international safety standard (EN60-950) for electronic data processing (EDP)
equipment also requires a ground conductor, but calls it a potential earth (PE) ground.
Depending upon local conditions, ground potentials may differ between the system
base and any peripheral devices connected to the system base. All grounds in the
system must return to the same reference point in the power distribution system, as
close as possible to zero (0) volt potential relative to earth reference ground. Earth
reference ground is typically a metal stake in the ground to which the ground
conductors from one or more buildings are attached.
Electrical Circuit and Wiring Information
A-1
Circuit Wiring Diagrams
As shown in Figure A-1, a star ground is often used to obtain the same earth reference
ground. Each earth reference ground such as the system base ground is returned
separately to a common point where a zero volt (0V) earth ground exists. The star
ground ensures that all equipment is at the same potential and that no noise or safety
problems associated with an unpredictable or uncharacterized grounding system will
occur.

Circuit Wiring Diagrams
NOTE
As shown in Figure A-2, the power inputs for the ftServer
system are labeled X and Y in the diagrams in this
appendix to eliminate any ambiguities in the
nomenclature. For single-phase applications, the X input
is connected to the L (Line) “hot” input, and the Y input is
connected to the N (Neutral) input. However, for
three-phase applications, the X and Y inputs are
connected to L1, L2, or L3 (but to separate lines).
Therefore, for three-phase applications, both X and Y can
be electrically “hot” with respect to the system base (earth
reference ground). Figure A-2 shows the physical
locations of the X and Y inputs on the system base.
