Overview Delivery Considerations The following list is only a sampling of the many delivery considerations available. For more information, visit the Best Practices web page at www.hp.com. When preparing to receive palletized racks, consider the following: • The dock door at the receiving site has to accommodate the height and width of palletized racks.
Overview 9. Install the appropriate support rails and/or tray for the first rack-mountable component. 10. Install the first individual component. 11. Attach a cable management arm, if required. 12. Attach the appropriate cables and power cords to the component, being sure to adhere to all cautions and warnings.
Configuration Factors Before populating your new rack, it is important to plan the placement of each component. Factors of each component, such as weight, accessibility, power, temperature, and airflow requirements, affect installation order and component placement in the rack. Rack Configuration Software To help you plan your rack configuration more efficiently, HP provides Rack Builder Online, the browser-based rack configuration tool.
Configuration Factors Rack Builder Online Modes of Operation The Rack Builder Online software has two modes of operation: • Help Me Build It Mode—Includes a simple interview session to help determine your rack and component needs, as well as the necessary power products and rack assembly devices needed to complete the final rack assembly.
Configuration Factors Component Placement The following rules apply to the physical placement of components in the rack: • Weight—Sort all components by weight, placing the heaviest components at the bottom of the rack. • Server Console Switch—Position the switch box on the side of the rack above the keyboard, or mount it behind the keyboard.
Configuration Factors • Server Console Switch—If a switch box is configured, use the CPU-to-Switch cable included with the server. The standard distance between the switch box and the keyboard, monitor, and/or mouse can vary by 3-, 7-, 12-, 20- and 40-foot lengths.
Configuration Factors Optimum Environment Specific requirements for space, power, temperature, and airflow must be met to provide optimum performance with minimum maintenance for your rack environment. Space Requirements When deciding where to place your rack: • At least 122 centimeters (48 inches) of clearance is needed all the way around the pallet and above the rack to allow the removal the packing materials.
Configuration Factors • If a UPS is used, the load should not exceed 80 percent of the UPS’s marked electrical current rating. CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment, verify that all AC Voltage Selector Switches are set correctly to match your local AC line voltage (115V or 230V).
Configuration Factors Temperature Requirements For safe and reliable operation of equipment, locate the system in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled environment. The HP Maximum Recommended Ambient Operating Temperature (TMRA) for most server products is 95°F (35°C). Therefore, the temperature in the room where the rack is located should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
Configuration Factors Airflow Requirements HP rack-mountable products typically draw in cool air through the front and exhaust warm air out through the rear of the rack. The front door of the rack, therefore, must be adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the rack, and the rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape the rack.
