-
Power cables
-
Hardware for the rack mount kit including round hole adapters
•
All systems ship with a 22 to 32 inch rack mount kit. For deeper racks, you can
separately order a 28 to 37 inch rack mount kit. See “Installing AS3000 Hardware in a
Rack” on page 19.
•
Ethernet cables — You need to supply Ethernet cables for the Avid AS3000 server
clients. See the Ethernet cabling section under “Supported Cabling” on page 69.
Optional line cards will require appropriate cables. See “Supported Cabling” on page 69.
18
n
Keep the accessories that ship in the AS3000. You might need them later for installing
optional disk drives or installing the server in a rack.
n
Keep the shipping boxes that come with your AS3000 hardware. You might need to
repackage and ship the components in the future.
Installing AS3000 Hardware in a Rack
Installing AS3000 Hardware in a Rack
The Avid AS3000 server is designed for 19-inch (483-mm) rack configurations and requires
one EIA rack units (1U), or 1.75 inches (44.45 mm) of rack space. The rail kit installs into
rails that are between 23-inches (584.2-mm) to 31-inches (787.4-mm) inches deep. An
optional rail kit is available for racks that are up to 37 inches deep.
The Avid AS3000 server includes rack mounting slide rails. The standard rail configuration
is for racks with square mounting holes. Optional brackets are included for racks with round
holes. The rack-mounting kit requires inner slide rails be mounted to the server and the outer
slide rails are mounted to the rack. Once both the inner and outer rails are in place, slide the
server with the inner rails attached into the outer rails. Secure the server in the front of the
rack using screws that are appropriate for the type of rack you are using.
c
w
n
The AS3000 is designed to be installed horizontally in a rack. Installing the AS3000 on
an angle or in a sloped console causes the internal drives to wear faster than the
intended life of the drive.
To ensure the stability of the rack enclosure, start from the bottom when you install the
rack components in the rack enclosure.
The AS3000 has vent holes on the top of the enclosure. Avid has performed thermal testing
with the top vent holes blocked, and the results indicated that even with the top vent holes
blocked, the AS3000 still operates within the temperature tolerances.
19
2 Installing the AS3000 System
Rack-mount Requirements
Please observer the following rack requirements:
•
Elevated Operating Ambient — If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment might be greater than room
ambient. Therefore, consider installing the equipment in an environment compatible
with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
•
Reduced Air Flow — Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the
amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
Avid AS3000 airflow is from the front of the enclosure to the rear. Make allowances for
cooling air to be available to the front panel surface and no restrictions at the rear.
•
Mechanical Loading — Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a
hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
Make sure your rack enclosure is stable enough to prevent tipping over when one or
more Avid AS3000 servers are extended on the sliding rails.
20
•
Circuit Overloading — Consideration should be given to the connection of the
equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment
nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
•
Reliable Grounding — Reliable grounding of rack-mounted equipment should be
maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).
•
Inside Enclosure Access — If you want to extend the enclosure, and remove the top
cover, you must allow 0.5 in (1.3 cm) clearance on top of the enclosure for cover
removal.

Electrostatic Discharge Precautions
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage disk drives, cards, and other parts. Avid recommends
that you perform all procedures in this chapter only at an ESD workstation. If one is not
available, provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap attached to chassis
ground (any unpainted metal surface) on your server when handling parts.
ESD and handling PCIe Cards
Always handle cards carefully. They can be extremely sensitive to ESD. Hold cards only by their
edges. After removing a card from its protective wrapper or from the server, place the card
component side up on a grounded, static free surface. Use a conductive foam pad if available but
not the card wrapper. Do not slide the card over any surface.

5 Product Recovery
This chapter describes the procedures to recover the system image originally installed on
your AS3000 system drive by reinstalling the Windows operating system and Avid specific
additions and changes.
This chapter covers the following topics:
•
Locating the recovery image
•
If necessary, copy the recovery image to the 16 GB USB flash drive that ships with your
AS3000
•
Instructions on how to use the recovery image to restore the Windows operating system
and hardware drivers that ship with your AS3000
The recovery procedure restores only the Windows operating system and the hardware
drivers. It does not restore the Avid application software. The Avid software must be
reinstalled separately, after the operating system recovery is complete. The version number
of the image can be found in the C:\IMAGE.TXT file on the root directory of the system
drive.
You might need to reinstall the Windows operating system on your server if you are directed
to do so by Avid Customer Support or if you are initializing a new drive. Perform an
installation to the entire system (C:, D:, and E:). This replaces all the data from all the
available partitions on your system drive. You can perform this operation if you are
initializing your system drive.
n
After reimaging the server, the Administrator password is set to is-admin.
5 Product Recovery

Electrical
You should consider installing a separately derived power system for your Avid server
hardware. This ensures that you can control the hardware grounding, with all grounds
brought to a single point, and that uncontrolled equipment, such as coffee makers or floor
polishers, cannot be plugged into the same power source as the Avid AS3000 hardware.
If you do not create a separately derived power system, you need to make sure the power
outlets you use are from the same distribution panel. This helps prevent the occurrence of
ground loops that can be caused by plugging equipment into power sources with different
ground potentials.
w
You should have all the electrical work at your site done by a licensed electrician. All
the electrical changes must meet country, state, and local electrical codes.
As you choose the location for your Avid server hardware, keep these electrical
requirements in mind:
•
Make sure there is adequate, dedicated power for the UPSs connected to the servers. See
“Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)” on page 68.
•
Make sure your location is away from major electrical equipment such as motors, air
conditioners, or elevators.
•
Make sure the location is not subject to electrostatic buildup.
•
Plug only your Avid hardware into the power strips. Do not plug in coffee makers,
radios, lights, or other non-Avid devices.

Canadian Notice (Avis Canadien)
Class A Equipment
This Class A digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing
Equipment Regulations.
Cet appareil numérique de la classe A respecte toutes les exigences du Règlement sur le
matériel brouilleur du Canada.
Rack-mount Requirements
(Hebrew)
•
Elevated Operating Ambient — If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment might be greater than room
ambient. Therefore, consider installing the equipment in an environment compatible
with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
•
Reduced Air Flow — Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the
amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
Avid AS3000 airflow is from the front of the enclosure to the rear. Make allowances for
cooling air to be available to the front panel surface and no restrictions at the rear.
•
Mechanical Loading — Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a
hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
72
A Safety and Regulatory Information
Make sure your rack enclosure is stable enough to prevent tipping over when one or
more Avid AS3000 servers are extended on the sliding rails.
•
Circuit Overloading — Consideration should be given to the connection of the
equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment
nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
•
Reliable Grounding — Reliable grounding of rack-mounted equipment should be
maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).
•
Inside Enclosure Access — If you want to extend the enclosure, and remove the top
cover, you must allow 0.5 in (1.3 cm) clearance on top of the enclosure for cover
removal.
