Configuration Factors

Component Placement

The following rules apply to the physical placement of components in the rack:

Weight

—Sort all components by weight, placing the heaviest components at the bottom of the rack.

Server Console Switch

—Position the switch box on the side of the rack above the keyboard, or mount it behind the keyboard.

CRT Monitor

—Position the monitor topmost within the rack.

Rack-Mountable Flat Panel Monitor

—Select a position to accommodate the desired viewing height (a minimum of 4Us above the keyboard tray).

Balance

—Be sure to balance the weight load between racks and place the heaviest components at the bottom of the rack. For example, if you have several

UPS units and several servers, do not put all of the UPS units into one rack— distribute them evenly in the bottom positions of each rack.

Additional Considerations

The following are additional items to consider, based on your specific rack configuration:

Power

—If a UPS is installed, do not exceed its output rating. Be sure to review the installation instructions provided with each component for important cautions and warnings.

PDUs

—Install PDUs before installing other components.

Height

—The height of the rack and of rack-mountable components is measured in U increments. When you are configuring your rack installation, remember that the total U measurement of the components you want to install cannot exceed the stated U height of the rack.

Keyboard

—The rack keyboard requires installation of a 1U Keyboard Drawer

Rack Option Kit.

Monitor

—The monitor requires installation of a Monitor/Utility Shelf Rack

Option Kit unless you are using a rack-mountable flat panel monitor.

Configuration Factors

Server Console Switch

—If a switch box is configured, use the CPU-to-Switch cable included with the server. The standard distance between the switch box and the keyboard, monitor, and/or mouse can vary by 3-, 7-, 12-, 20- and 40-foot lengths. Optional Plenum-rated KVM cables are available in 20-foot and

40-foot lengths

.

NOTE:

National Electrical Regulations governing the installation of building wiring require that an appropriate cable, meeting fire-safety standards, must be used any time cabling is routed:

Through an overhead drop-ceiling

Under a computer room’s raised flooring

From room to room

From floor to floor

Be sure that the cable jacket or sleeving is made of material that does not burn easily and does not exude toxic fumes when exposed to heat. Be sure that the cable you have selected is appropriate for your installation site. If you require a U.S. plenum-rated (CL2P) cable, please contact your local HP authorized reseller to obtain the following options:

149363-B21—20-foot plenum cable

149364-B21—40-foot plenum cable

Baying Option Kits

—The number of baying kits needed to join a series of racks is one less than the number of racks in the suite. Each baying kit supplies parts to bay two cabinets on 600 millimeters (24 inches) center line spacing.

Side Panels

—Only one set of side panels is required for each row of bayed racks.

Stabilizing Feet

—A stand-alone rack requires stabilizing feet.

Configuration Factors

Optimum Environment

Specific requirements for space, power, temperature, and airflow must be met to provide optimum performance with minimum maintenance for your rack environment.

Space Requirements

When deciding where to place your rack:

At least 122 centimeters (48 inches) of clearance is needed all the way around the pallet and above the rack to allow the removal the packing materials.

At least 86 centimeters (34 inches) of clearance is needed in front of the rack to allow the door to open all the way.

At least 75 centimeters (30 inches) of clearance is needed in the rear of the rack to provide access to components.

At least 38 centimeters (15 inches) of clearance is needed around a power supply to facilitate servicing.

Power Requirements

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or damage to the equipment, do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. Consult the electrical authority having jurisdiction over your facility wiring and installation procedures.

When planning for power distribution requirements for your rack configuration:

The power load must be balanced between available AC supply branch circuits.

The overall system AC current load must not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit AC current rating.

Codename: Mastiff Part Number: 258200-002 Last Saved On: 10/15/02 11:00 AM

Configuration Factors

If a UPS is used, the load should not exceed 80 percent of the UPS’s marked electrical current rating.

CAUTION:

To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment, verify that all AC

Voltage Selector Switches are set correctly to match your local AC line voltage

(115V or 230V). If the AC Voltage Selector Switches are not properly set, your components will be damaged when power is applied.

The installation of this equipment shall be in accordance with local/regional electrical regulations governing the installation of Information Technology Equipment by licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to operate in installations covered by the National Electric Code (ANSI/NFPA-70, 1993) and the code for Protection of

Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment (NFPA-75, 1992).

For electrical power ratings on options, refer to the product’s rating label or user documentation supplied with that option.

Grounding Requirements

For proper operation and safety, all powered rack-mountable components are required to be properly grounded in accordance with (NFPA-70, 1993), Article 250.

All power distribution devices, branch wiring, and receptacles must be listed as grounding-type devices.

When using power strips for electrical distribution, make sure that ground integrity is maintained for each connection made. Plug each component into a reliably grounded outlet.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the power cord grounding feature. This equipment is designed to be connected to a grounded (earthed) power outlet that is easily accessible and located as close as possible to the equipment. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.

Configuration Factors

Temperature Requirements

For safe and reliable operation of equipment, locate the system in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled environment.

The HP Maximum Recommended Ambient Operating Temperature (TMRA) for most server products is 95°F (35°C). Therefore, the temperature in the room where the rack is located should not exceed 95°F (35°C).

The operating temperature inside the rack is always higher than the room temperature and is dependent on the configuration of equipment in your rack. Check the TMRA for each piece of equipment before installation.

The maximum internal rack temperature for your configuration should not exceed the values in the following table.

CAUTION:

To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options:

Make sure that the option equipment does not impede airflow to the rack-mountable products already installed in the rack or increase the internal rack temperature beyond the HP specified maximum rating.

Make sure that the manufacturer’s Maximum Recommended Ambient Operating

Temperature for the option equipment is not exceeded when the option equipment is installed in a HP rack.

Configuration Factors

Airflow Requirements

HP rack-mountable products typically draw in cool air through the front and exhaust warm air out through the rear of the rack. The front door of the rack, therefore, must be adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the rack, and the rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape the rack. Do not block the ventilation apertures.

Fan Kits

If additional cooling is required, fan kits can be used to draw heated air from the rack and exhaust it out through the top.

Blanking Panels

If the front of the rack is not completely filled with components, the remaining gaps between the components can cause changes in the airflow, which can adversely affect cooling within the rack. Cover these gaps with blanking panels.

Preparing the Rack for Component Installation

Stabilizing the Rack

WARNING: The rack allows you to stack computer components on a vertical rather than a horizontal plane. To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, you must follow these instructions carefully and heed all cautions and warnings throughout the installation instructions.

Standalone Racks

If you are installing a single (standalone) rack, make sure that the rack is level and that stabilizing feet have been attached, before installing the components. If an unstable rack is loaded with components, it can become unbalanced and may tip over.

Leveling Feet

The leveling feet, located beside each caster on the rack, unscrew and extend to the floor, resting in leveling-feet bases provided with your rack. These feet support the rack and help compensate for uneven surfaces.

After positioning the rack in its final location, use an adjustable wrench to extend the leveling feet into the bases until the weight of the rack is fully on the feet and feet bases, not the casters. This stabilizes the rack for installation of your components.

CAUTION:

To reduce the risk of damage to the casters, make sure that the full weight of the rack rests on the leveling feet, and not on the casters. The casters are designed

only

as an aid in moving the rack into position. They are not designed to support the weight of the rack and may become damaged if relied on to support the rack.

Stabilizing Feet

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, you must attach HP Series rack stabilizing feet to all standalone (non-bayed) racks.

The Stabilizer Rack Option Kit contains three full-size and two modified stabilizing feet.

The full-size stabilizing feet are for standalone racks. Attach one stabilizing foot to the front and one to each side of the rack. Stabilizing feet are not required on the back of a standalone rack.

The modified stabilizing feet are for bayed racks. Attach one modified foot to the front of the rack when you place it between third-party racks.

NOTE:

The Stabilizer Rack Option Kit components come standard with each 10622 rack.

Preparing the Rack for Component Installation

Multiple Racks

Increasing space and stability, 10000 Series racks can be bayed together by installing the Rack Option Baying Kit or the Rack Option Offset Baying Kit, depending on the series, height, and depth.

Rack Option Baying Kit

—Joins multiple racks of the same series, height, and depth.

Rack Option Offset Baying Kit

—Joins multiple racks of different series with the same height but different depths.

Observe the following tips when using multiple-rack configurations:

Stabilizing feet are optional with bayed racks.

Modified feet should be used with bayed racks.

The number of baying kits needed is one less than the total number of racks.

Position and install either baying option kit before populating the racks with components.

Racks from different series can be bayed together as long as they are the same height.

Server/Storage vs. Switching Configurations

The 10000 Series rack offers interchangeable front and rear doors that allow the rack to be used in server/storage or switching applications. The 10842 rack arrives in a server/storage configuration with internal mounting rails that are front-justified, providing the customer greater room in the rear of the rack for cable management.

Installing Components

General Guidelines

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, always be sure that the rack is adequately stabilized before extending a component outside the rack. A rack may become unstable if more than one component is extended for any reason.

Extend only one component at a time.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, always load the heaviest item first from the bottom of the rack up. This makes the rack bottom-heavy and helps prevent the rack from becoming unstable.

See Chapter 2, “Configuration Factors,” for more information about the placement of rack-mountable components.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, be sure that:

The leveling jacks are extended to the floor.

The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.

The stabilizing feet are attached to the rack if it is a single-rack installation.

The racks are coupled together in multiple-rack installations.

Only one component is extended at a time. A rack may become unstable if more than one component is extended for any reason.

CAUTION:

To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options:

Be sure that the option equipment installed does not impede airflow to the rack-mountable ProLiant servers or increase the internal rack temperature beyond the specified maximum rating.

Be sure that the option equipment installed does not exceed the Manufacturer’s

Maximum Recommended Ambient Operating Temperature.

Installing Components

Observe the general guidelines when loading your components:

For detailed instructions on installing a specific component or third-party hardware, see the user documentation that was shipped with the component.

See Appendix A, “Electrostatic Discharge,” before installing components into the rack.

Use the configuration prepared with the Rack Builder Online software utility as a guideline for installing components.

Load the heavier components first from the bottom of the rack up.

Be sure to balance the weight load between bayed racks. For example, if you have several UPS units and several servers, do not put all of the UPS units into one rack. Instead distribute them evenly in the bottom positions of each rack.

Allow a minimum clearance of 76 centimeters (30 inches) between the wall and the rear of the rack to provide adequate access for installation and service.

Electrostatic Discharge

To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.

To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:

Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.

Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.

Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.

Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.

Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.

Electrostatic Discharge

Grounding Methods

There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:

Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm

±

10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.

Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.

Use conductive field service tools.

Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.

If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have HP authorized reseller install the part

NOTE:

For more information on static electricity, or assistance with product installation, contact your HP authorized reseller.

Transportation Instructions

NOTE:

The following section is only a sampling of the many delivery considerations available.

For more information, visit the Best Practices web page at www.hp.com.

Transportation Methods

Depending on your circumstances and time schedule, there are three transportation methods for transporting your rack: air, land, and sea.

Air Transport

All racks can be air freighted upright (on a pallet or shock pallet) or horizontally

(in a crate). However, since the 10842 rack has a packaged height of 217 centimeters

(85.4 inches) and the maximum height for air cargo is 218.4 centimeters (86 inches), only the largest cargo planes can accommodate it upright. If your destination does not accommodate large cargo planes, the 10842 rack must be air freighted horizontally in a crate.

A passenger plane with cargo space has a height limitation of 160 centimeters

(63 inches). Because a palletized 10622 rack is below this limit, it can readily be delivered by air. It must be shipped upright on a pallet, and double-stacking is not allowed.

CAUTION:

If your rack is an integrated model, it MUST be transported upright. If this is not possible, remove all components from the rack and prepare them for delivery, or choose an alternative transportation method.

Codename: Mastiff Part Number: 258200-002 Last Saved On: 10/2/02 1:19 PM

Transportation Instructions

Because of the dimensions and the weight of the racks, check with carriers for their limitations before dispatching.

Land Transport

All racks can be shipped by common carriers. Carriers providing air ride capabilities are preferred. Ship racks upright on their pallets. Do not lay the racks horizontally or double-stack them. Because of the dimensions and the weight of the racks, please check with carriers for their restrictions before dispatching.

Sea Transport

All racks can be transported by sea, but it takes four to six weeks for the shipment to arrive. Ship racks upright on their pallets. Do not lay the racks horizontally or double-stack them.

Delivery Services

HP provides two methods of delivery for customers in North America: Inside Rack

Delivery Service and Expedited Rack Delivery Service. If you want both Inside Rack

Delivery and Expedited Rack Delivery, you must specify

both

part numbers on your purchase order.

Inside Rack Delivery Service

Inside Rack Delivery Service (Part No. 184649-001) is available for receiving sites that do not have the proper facilities for the standard dock-to-dock delivery, or when you need delivery to a specific location within a site. The rack is transported as close as possible to the desired location. If a stairway or a non-accessible doorway is encountered, the rack is left there.

Highlights

The palletized rack is unloaded by transportation personnel.

Transportation personnel provide material-handling equipment.

Writer: Amy L. Laffitte File Name: h-appb Transportation Methods

Codename: Mastiff Part Number: 258200-002 Last Saved On: 10/2/02 1:19 PM

Transportation Instructions

The rack is delivered to the desired location within the facility

(see “Limitations”).

Delivery service is for a single rack.

Limitations

If shipping a non-integrated rack, door widths and corridors must accept a

99-centimeters x 122-centimeters (39-inches x 48-inches) pallet.

Door heights and corridors must be at least 2 meters (79 inches) tall to accommodate the 10842 rack.

A proper freight elevator must be available for deliveries to upper and lower floors.

Transportation personnel will not remove the rack from the shipping pallet.

Transportation personnel will not remove the pallet or packaging.

Expedited Rack Delivery Service

Expedited Rack Delivery Service (Part No. 184449-001) is available in the rare instances when air shipment of the rack is required.

Highlights

Special packaging, such as crating, is provided as required.

Shipment is made by an air carrier selected by HP.

Delivery service is for a single rack.

Limitations

This service is available only in the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii.

Inside rack delivery is not included.

Transportation Instructions

Shipping/Delivery Considerations

The following precautions should be observed when receiving the racks and components.

A dock door is needed at the receiving site to accommodate the height and width of the palletized racks.

When shipping a rack, the 99-centimeters x 122-centimeters (39-inch x 48-inch) pallet does not fit through a standard-width internal door, which is about

76.2 centimeters (30 inches) wide.

The palletized 42U rack is approximately 216 centimeters (85 inches) high and does not fit through a standard-height door.

Do not lay the rack horizontally because the sheet metal can become distorted.

Transport the rack as far into the building as possible while still on the pallet.

Then remove the rack from the pallet and roll the rack on its casters, being careful to keep the rack from tipping. Ideally, the palletized rack should be moved to its final destination and then removed from the pallet.
