Step
Task
1.
Move the system rack to the installation site
(see the Site Preparation Guide for Sun Storage
6580 and 6780 Arrays).
2.
Stabilize the system rack by adjusting the
leveling feet located at the bottom of each
corner of the rack.
3.

Review Physical Connections
1. Review intertray cabling for your configuration (see diagrams in the Hardware Installation Guide).
2. Verify that both AC power switches (FIGURE 4) are off for each tray in the rack.
3. Verify that each tray’s A and B power supply is connected to the corresponding PDU (FIGURE 5).
4. Make sure all connections are firmly seated.
5. Connect the rack power cables to the external power source.

Connect Data Hosts
FIGURE 6
Data Host Direct Connections
Step
Task
1.
Verify that data host OS requirements are met
(see the Release Notes for Sun Storage 6580 and
6780 Arrays).
2.
Connect an SFP transceiver and optical FC cable
into each controller host port you plan to use.
Connect the other end of each cable directly to
the host HBA or to an external FC switch.
3.
Be sure the proper pairs are matched to ensure
failover functionality.
4.
Label each cable with information about its
connection.
5.
Verify that data host HBA drivers and multipath
software are installed (see the Release Notes for
Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays).
Step
Task
1.
Connect Ethernet cables between port 1 of
Controller A and port 1 of Controller B to an
external Ethernet switch.
Note: Ethernet port 2 is reserved for service
access.
2.
Connect the management host to the Ethernet
switch.
3.
Connect the Ethernet switch to the LAN
infrastructure.

Turn On the Power
During initial power-up, each of the RAID controllers uses DHCP to obtain an IP address. If a DHCP server is
not available, you can configure the IP addresses manually as described in the Hardware Installation Guide.
The default IP addresses are:
■
Controller A: 192.168.128.101
■
Controller B: 192.168.128.102

Step
Task
1.
Place the circuit breaker for the cabinet’s power
source in the On position. Place the two power
switches on the front of each PDU in the On position.
2.
Place both power switches (1) at the back of each
expansion tray in the On position.
3.
Wait until all expansion trays are powered up.
4.
Place both power switches (2) at the back of the
controller tray in the On position.
5.
After the power sequence is complete, check the
status of each tray:
• Confirm that the green OK/Power LEDs are steady
green, both on the tray and on each drive in the
tray.
• If all tray and drive OK/Power LEDs are steady
green and the amber Service Required LEDs are off,
the power-on sequence is complete and no faults
have been detected.

Install the Management Host Software
Oracle’s Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) software is a storage management environment that
supports Oracle’s Sun storage products. Download the CAM software and install on the management host, as
described in the Sun Storage Common Array Manager Quick Start Guide.
Note – The Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 arrays require controller firmware version 7.50.13.xx (or higher),
included with CAM 6.4.1 (or higher).
