Important Safety Instructions
The DX8100-ISCI SCSI card must be installed inside the DX8100 chassis. To do so, the DX8100 must be taken offline and turned off before
starting the upgrade process. Before continuing the upgrade procedure, read these safety instructions.
1. Read the Important Safety Instructions that came with the DX8100. You can access this document at www.Pelco.com. Navigate to
Products > Control Site Equipment > Video Recorders > Digital Video Recorders > DX8100 Series Digital Video Recorders > Documents.
2. The security surveillance service provided by the DX8100 is interrupted when it is taken offline.
3. The unit must be shut down and turned off to install the DX8100-ISCI SCSI card.
4. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket, and then unplug it from the rear of the DVR.
WARNING: It is critical that the DX8100 be unplugged for your safety. You must remove the power cord because electrical current
continues to flow through the unit even when it is off.
5. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
6. Make sure you protect the unit and its components from electrostatic discharge (ESD).
7. The currently installed data drive(s) might contain recorded data. If you must remove a data drive, label the drive to make sure it is
reinstalled in the same location.

DX8100-ISCI SCSI Card Installation
NOTE: When ordered together, the DX8100 and DX8100HDDI units come preconfigured from the factory. The DX8100-ISCI SCSI card is already
installed and the units are ready for installation. Proceed to Installing a New DX8100 and DX8100HDDI System on page 15.
If you are upgrading an existing DX8100 System, perform the following steps.
PREPARING THE SCSI CARD FOR INSTALLATION
1. Unpack the DX8100-ISCI SCSI card kit.
2. Verify that you have all the necessary components and tools (refer to Parts List and Tools on page 7).
3. Shut down the unit. Refer to the DX8100 Installation manual (C2629M), Operation/Configuration manual (C2630M), or DX8100 server
online Help.
4. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
WARNING: It is critical that the unit be unplugged for your safety. You must remove the power cord first because current continues to
flow through the DX8100 even when the unit is turned off. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket, then unplug it from the rear of
the DVR.
5. Then, remove the power cord from the back of the DX8100.
Figure 1. Removing the Power Cord
6. Disconnect any cables or connections that may restrict access or interfere with the removal of the unit.
7. If mounted in a rack, unscrew the fasteners that secure the unit in the rack and carefully lift the unit out of the rack. Two people may be
required for this step.
8. Place the DX8100 on a flat surface with ample workspace. Make sure the area provides full access to the unit’s internal components.

OPENING THE CHASSIS
WARNINGS:
•
Make sure the unit is turned off and you are wearing a properly grounded ESD wrist strap before attempting to open the chassis cover.
•
The chassis assembly includes parts with sharp edges. To avoid injury, use caution when working in and around the DX8100 chassis
and components.
1. Make sure you protect the unit and its components, which are susceptible to damage from improper handling and ESD. Refer to the
Safe Handling of Hard Drives document (C2668M) for more information.
2. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the chassis cover (refer to Figure 3):
a. Remove the top two screws on the left and right side panels of the DX8100.
b.
Remove the four silver screws (along the top of the unit) that fastens the cover to the back of the unit.
c.
Carefully remove the chassis cover by sliding it back and up. Set aside the cover.

REASSEMBLING THE UNIT
1. Replace the chassis cover using the screws you removed from the sides and rear of the unit (refer to Figure 7).
Figure 7. Replacing the Chassis Cover
2. Attach the silver product label that came with your upgrade kit to the inside of your DVR’s front door.
a. Remove the paper backing from the product label.
b.
Carefully place the label, adhesive-side down, on a free section of the inside of the door.
c.
Press down firmly to ensure that the label properly adheres to the inside of the door.
NOTE: In the event that your unit or its components require service, specific labels must be present and appropriately affixed to the unit’s door.
Pelco Product Support personnel use these labels to identify the exact components installed in your system. A separate product label is required
for each upgrade component installed on the DX8100.
3. Reinstall the unit in a rack enclosure (if necessary), and reconnect all cables and peripheral equipment you removed earlier.
The final step is to install the DX8100HDDI.

C3648M (7/08)
Installing a New DX8100 and DX8100HDDI System
When ordered together, the DX8100 or DX8116 and DX8100HDDI units come preconfigured from the factory. The DX8100-ISCI SCSI card is
already installed and the units are ready for installation.
INSTALLING THE UNITS
NOTES:
•
When installing the DX8100 and DX8100HDDI units, make sure they are close to one another. The SCSI cable is 3.3 ft long (1 m) and must
easily connect both units.
•
Both units are very heavy. Two people are required to lift and carry each unit.
•
For rack mount instructions, refer to the installation manual for each unit.
Install the units as follows:
1. Install the DX8100. Refer to the DX8100 Series Digital Video Recorder Installation manual (C2629M).
2. Install the DX8100HDDI. Refer to the Infortrend EonStor A12U-G2421 Installation and Hardware Reference Manual
(ES_A12U_A08U-G2421_HMN), which is located on the DX8100HDDI resource disc.
Once installed, refer to Installing the DX8100HDDI Drive Trays.
INSTALLING THE DX8100HDDI DRIVE TRAYS
The DX8100HDDI has 12 drive bays, one for each drive tray. Figure 8 shows the number for each drive bay.

Figure 8. DX8100HDDI Drive Bays
Each hard disk drive (HDD) is installed in its drive tray at the factory. Some drive trays may not have drives. All trays must be installed in the
DX8100HDDI to maintain proper airflow inside the unit and avoid overheating.
To install the drive trays:
1. Unpack the drive trays.
NOTE: Each drive tray (and HDD) is labeled. The label represents the number of the drive bay where the drive tray must be installed.
2. Flip the retention latch on the front handle, and then open the handle (refer to Figure 9). This gives you access to the left (1, 5, and 9) and
right (4, 8, and 12) drive bays.
