Prepare site

Contributors

Before installing the appliance, you must make sure that the site and the cabinet or rack you plan to use meet the specifications for a StorageGRID appliance.

Steps
  1. Confirm that the site meets the requirements for temperature, humidity, altitude range, airflow, heat dissipation, wiring, power, and grounding. See the NetApp Hardware Universe for more information.

  2. Confirm that your location provides the correct voltage of AC power:

    Model Requirement

    SGF6112

    100 to 240 volts AC

    SG6060

    240-volt AC

    SGF6024

    120-volt AC

    SG5760

    240-volt AC

    SG100 and SG1000

    120 to 240 volts AC

  3. Obtain a 19-inch (48.3-cm) cabinet or rack to fit shelves of the following size (without cables).

  4. Decide where you are going to install the appliance.

    Caution When installing the E2860 controller shelf or optional expansion shelves, install hardware from the bottom to the top of the rack or cabinet to prevent the equipment from tipping over. To ensure that the heaviest equipment is at the bottom of the cabinet or rack, install the SG6000-CN controller above the E2860 controller shelf and expansion shelves.
    Important Before committing to the installation, verify that the 0.5m optic cables shipped with an SG6000 appliance, or cables that you supply, are long enough for the planned layout.
  5. Install any required network switches. See the NetApp Interoperability Matrix Tool for compatibility information.
