  • Page 27: Installing The Battery Pack

    Installing the Battery Pack The xStack Storage Array accommodates a shrink-wrapped battery pack. Because write-back caching is always enabled, we recommend you have a battery to back up the buffer cache contents. The battery pack connects to the DSN-1100 controller board using a 3-pin locking connector at J11 (see Figure A-3 for detailed drawing of its location).
  • Page 28 To install a battery in your xStack Storage SAN Array, follow these steps: 1. Hold the battery as shown to align the fastener strips. Make sure the battery cable and connector is located nearest to the battery socket J11 on the controller (see Figure A-4). Figure A-4 Aligning the Battery 2.
  • Page 29 3. Carefully feed the battery’s connector up through the hole in the mounting plate as shown in Figure A-6. Do not damage the insulation on the wires.
