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 SG5660, you must also install the drives after installing the appliance.

Before you begin

Install hardware from the bottom of the rack or cabinet or rack up to prevent the equipment from tipping over.
The SG5612 weighs approximately 60 lb (27 kg) when fully loaded with drives. Two people or a mechanized lift are required to safely move the SG5612.
The SG5660 weighs approximately 132 lb (60 kg) with no drives installed. Four people or a mechanized lift are required to safely move an empty SG5660.
To avoid damaging the hardware, never move an SG5660 if drives are installed. You must remove all drives before moving the appliance.
