Installing the appliance in a cabinet or rack

You must install rails in your cabinet or rack and then slide the appliance onto the rails. If you have an SG5760, you must also install the drives after installing the appliance.

Before you begin

CAUTION:
Install hardware from the bottom of the rack or cabinet or rack up to prevent the equipment from tipping over.
CAUTION:
The SG5712 weighs approximately 64 lb (29 kg) when fully loaded with drives. Two people or a mechanized lift are required to safely move the SG5712.
CAUTION:
The SG5760 weighs approximately 132 lb (60 kg) with no drives installed. Four people or a mechanized lift are required to safely move an empty SG5760.
CAUTION:
To avoid damaging the hardware, never move an SG5760 if drives are installed. You must remove all drives before moving the shelf.

Steps

  1. Carefully follow the instructions for the rail kit to install the rails in your cabinet or rack.
  2. If you have an SG5760, follow these steps to prepare for moving the appliance.
    1. Remove the outer packing box. Then, fold down the flaps on the inner box.
    2. If you are lifting the SG5760 by hand, attach the four handles to the sides of the chassis.
      You remove these handles as you slide the appliance onto the rails.
  3. See the Installation and Setup Instructions, and slide the appliance in the cabinet or rack.
  4. See the Installation and Setup Instructions, and secure the appliance to the cabinet or rack.
    If you have an SG5760, use the back brackets to secure the appliance to the rear of the rack or cabinet. Use the cage nuts if your rack or cabinet has square holes.
  5. If you have an SG5760, install 12 drives in each of the 5 drive drawers.
    You must install all 60 drives to ensure correct operation.
    1. Put on the ESD wristband, and remove the drives from their packaging.
    2. Release the levers on the top drive drawer, and slide the drawer out using the levers.
    3. Raise the drive handle to vertical, and align the buttons on the drive with the notches on the drawer.
