13 Alternative Rack Mounting (4-Post) Introduction This chapter provides the instructions for mounting the HP Netserver in a four-post (column) HP Systems rack. Figure 13-1 shows the Systems rack. If you have the newer 4-post HP System/E or System/U racks, go to Chapter 8. If you are mounting the Netserver in a 2-post non-HP rack, refer to Chapter 7, or see the documentation in the appropriate rack accessory kit.
Chapter 13 Alternative Rack Mounting (4–Post) Before mounting the Netserver, determine the Netserver’s location in the rack relative to other rack components. Proper placement is vital both for safety and operating efficiency. For more information, refer to "Rack Configuration Tools" later in this chapter.
Chapter 13 Alternative Rack Mounting (4–Post) Safety Precautions Always keep the following safety and environmental issues in mind, especially if you install the HP Netserver in a non-HP rack environment: Optimum Operating Environment – The optimum operating conditions for the HP Netserver is in an environmental controlled computer room with a temperature range of 20 to 22 C (68 to 72 F) at 40 to 60% relative humidity.
Chapter 13 Alternative Rack Mounting (4–Post) Preparing the Rack The outer-rail assemblies must be released after shipment and the columns must be marked before mounting the outer-rail assemblies. Once the outer-rails are correctly mounted, then the HP Netserver LP 1000r can be installed into the rack. A template is not provided because the Netserver is exactly one EIA unit high and can only fit into one EIA unit, but not across two EIA units.
