Lift the Autoloader and padding out of the box and place it on a
work surface, top facing up.

Step 2: Choose a Location
Select a location for the Autoloader that has adequate clearance for
ventilation, minimal dust and debris, and an appropriate power source

level. Do not place the Autoloader on its side or stack items on top of the
Autoloader.
Step 3: Install the Autoloader into a Rack
If this is a rackmount installation, install the Autoloader into a rack by
doing the following:
• Securing the fixing flanges on the sides of the Autoloader
• Installing the mounting rails into the rack
• Securing the flanges to the mounting rails

Step 4: Cabling the Autoloader
a. Ensure that all devices on the SCSI bus are powered off.
b. Attach a SCSI cable from the SCSI bus to one of the SCSI connectors
on the back panel of the Autoloader.
c. If the Autoloader is the last device on the SCSI bus (or the only
device), attach a SCSI terminator to the other SCSI connector on the
back panel of the Autoloader.
If the Autoloader is not the last device of the SCSI bus, attach a SCSI
cable from the open connector on the back panel of the Autoloader to
the next device on the bus.
d. Connect a power cord from the back panel of the Autoloader to a
grounded power source.
Step 5: Prepare the Host
If necessary, install a SCSI host bus adapter, software, and a compatible
driver on the host computer. Connect the SCSI bus to the host computer.
