Installing the JSA3800 in a Rack

 

Installing the JSA3800 Appliance

Place the shipping container on a flat surface and carefully remove the hardware components.

To install the JSA3800 appliance:

  1. Mount the JSA3800 appliance in your server rack using the attached mounting brackets. See Installing the JSA3800 Appliance Using Front-and-Rear-Mounting Flush in a Four-Post Rack and Mid-Mounting the JSA3800 Appliance in a Two-Post Rack.
  2. Plug the power cord into the AC receptacles on the rear panel as shown in Figure 1.
    Figure 1: Connecting the AC Power Cord

    Note

    To connect DC power, see Connecting the JSA3800 Appliance to a DC Power Source.

  3. Plug the other end of the power cord into a wall socket.

  4. Plug the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the back panel.

    When you turn on the power, the internal port uses two LEDs to indicate the LAN connection status, as shown in Figure 2.

Installing the JSA3800 Appliance Using Front-and-Rear-Mounting Flush in a Four-Post Rack

The JSA3800 appliance uses this mounting option as its default configuration. The rack mounting kit includes two rack rail assemblies. Each assembly consists of an inner fixed chassis rail that is secured to the server chassis and an outer fixed rack rail that is secured to the rack.

To mount the JSA3800 appliance on a four-post rack:

  1. Install the inner rail extensions (optional).Note

    The JSA3800 appliance includes a set of inner rails that are preattached to the chassis. You can attach optional inner rail extensions to stabilize the chassis within the rack.

    1. Place the inner rail extensions on the side of the chassis such that the hooks on the chassis clip securely into the rail extension holes.

    2. Slide the extensions toward the front of the chassis.

    3. Secure the rails with screws as shown in Figure 3.

  2. Install the outer rails:
    1. Attach the shorter outer rails to the longer outer rails.

    2. Adjust the length of the rails so that they fit snugly into the rack.

    3. Secure the rails to the front and rear of the rack using three M5 screws each as shown in Figure 4.

  3. Align the rear of the chassis inner rails with the front of the rack rails as shown in Figure 5.

  4. Keeping the pressure even on both sides, slide the chassis rails into the rack rails until the locking tabs click into position (you might have to depress the locking tabs when inserting). See Figure 6.

  5. (Optional) Insert and tighten the thumbscrews that secure the front of the server to the rack.

Mid-Mounting the JSA3800 Appliance in a Two-Post Rack

This option is suitable for a two-post equipment rack. It allows the appliance to be mid-mounted so that there is even clearance at the front and rear of the rack.

To mount the appliance using this option:

  1. Determine how far the server will extend out from the front of the rack. The chassis should be positioned to balance the weight between the front and back.
  2. Secure four brackets to the rack posts at the desired position. Secure two brackets to the front rack posts and attach two brackets to the rear rack posts as shown in Figure 7.

  3. Mount the outer rails on the rack by securing the racks to the brackets using M5 screws as shown in Figure 8.

  4. Secure an additional bracket to the front of each outer rail using two M5 screws as shown in Figure 9.

  5. Install the inner rails on the chassis.
    1. Place the inner rail extensions on the side of the chassis such that the hooks on the chassis clip securely into the rail extension holes.

    2. Slide the extensions toward the front of the chassis.

    3. Secure the rails with screws as shown in Figure 10.

  6. Align the rear of the chassis inner rails with the front of the outer rails as shown in Figure 11.

  7. Keeping the pressure even on both sides, slide the chassis rails into the rack rails.
  8. Insert and tighten the thumbscrews. See Figure 11.
