least 12 hours before unpacking it from the shipping container.
Unpacking the library:

company immediately.
Remove the packaging, accessories, and library from the box one layer at a time.

Carefully remove the foam padding and then the bag from the library.
Save the packaging materials to move or ship the library in the future.
Verify that you received the following components:
Tape library
Ethernet cable
Two rack rails with packets of rack hardware
Verify that you have the necessary cables.
For a library with FC drives, you must provide an FC cable for each FC port you plan
to use. See

for your HBA. See

Removing the shipping lock

The shipping lock prevents the robotic transport mechanism from moving during shipment. You
must remove the shipping lock before powering on the library. The shipping lock is held in place
with a piece of tape and is located in the top center of the library. After removing the shipping
lock, store it on the back panel of the library for future use.
To remove and store the shipping lock:
Locate the tape and shipping lock at the top of the library.
Remove the tape, and then remove the lock.
Store the lock on the back panel.
Installing the library
If the temperature in the room where the library will be installed varies 15ºC (30ºF)
Do not place the library on either end or its sides as this might damage it.
