    About This Guide About This Guide This guide contains information you need to install and configure the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S quickly. For complete installation instructions, and instructions on installing additional modules such as cards and power supplies, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide at http://www.ibm.com/systems/support/networking...
  • Page 4 By installing different combinations of IOCs and SPCs, you can tailor both the number of network ports and the maximum security processing capacity to suit your network. Table 1 on page 4 describes the minimum system configuration for the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S.
  • Page 5: Step 1: Prepare The Site

    Step 1: Prepare the Site The Ethernet appliance is shipped on a pallet covered by a cardboard cover. The device chassis is bolted to the pallet. A printed copy of this document and an accessory box are also included in the shipping container. Step 1: Prepare the Site Rack-Mounting Requirements You can install the device in a four-post rack or cabinet or a two-post rack.
  • Page 6: Step 2: Install The Mounting Hardware

    IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Getting Started Guide Step 2: Install the Mounting Hardware The specific mounting hardware required depends on the type of rack being used. Use the appropriate procedure steps to install the mounting hardware for your situation. To install the mounting hardware: Locate the rack mount brackets in the accessory kit.
  • Page 7: Step 3: Install The Device

    Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance. For details, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. Load the device onto the lift, making sure it rests securely on the lift platform (see Figure 6 on page 8).
  • Page 8 IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Getting Started Guide Figure 6: Load the Device onto the Lift Using the lift, position the device in the rack: For two-post rack mounting, align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail.
  • Page 9 Step 3: Install the Device Figure 7: Installing the Device in a Two-Post Rack Figure 8: Installing the Device in a Four-Post Rack Install the remaining screws in each mounting bracket. Move the lift away from the rack. Visually inspect the alignment of the device. If the device is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side, and the device should be level.

  • Page 12: Lift The Chassis Into The Rack

    IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Getting Started Guide Lift the Chassis into the Rack Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack is a two person lift process. The empty chassis weighs approximately 43.6 lb (19.8 kg). Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building.
  • Page 13: Reinstall Components

    Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. Slide each component into the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  • Page 14: Connect A Management Console

    Connect the IOC Cables Have ready a length of the type of cable used by the IOC. For cable specifications, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. If you are connecting a fiber IOC cable, the connector port may be covered by a rubber safety cap.
  • Page 15: Connect The Grounding Cable

    Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. Place the grounding cable lug over the grounding point—a pair of M5 holes to the left of the power supply slots.
  • Page 16: Connect Power To An Ac-Powered Ethernet Appliance

    ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. Locate the power cord or cords you will use to connect the device to AC power.
  • Page 17: Connect Power To A Dc-Powered Ethernet Appliance

    Step 5: Connect the Ground and Power Cables Snap the wire bail over the power cord as shown in Figure 14 on page 17 to prevent the power cord from accidentally disengaging. Dress the power cord appropriately. Verify that the power cord does not block the air exhaust and access to device components or drape where people could trip on it.
  • Page 18 Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. For each power supply: Remove the clear plastic cover protecting the terminal studs on the faceplate.
  • Page 19: Step 6: Perform The Initial Software Configuration

    Step 6: Perform the Initial Software Configuration Connect each DC power cable to the appropriate external DC power source. NOTE: For information about connecting to external DC power sources, see the instructions for your site. Switch on the external circuit breakers to provide voltage to the DC power source cable leads.

    Before installing the device, read the guidelines for site preparation in the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide to make sure that the site meets power, environmental, and clearance requirements for the Ethernet appliance. For the cooling system to function properly, the airflow around the chassis must be unrestricted.
  • Page 24: Compliance Statements For Emc Requirements

    When installing the device, do not use a ramp inclined more than 10 degrees. Manually installing the device is a two person lift process. Before lifting the chassis, remove components as described in the IBM Ethernet Appliance J36S Hardware Guide. To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back.
