Installing the hardware
Installing the hardware involves installing the mounting rails, enclosure, and, in the case of the SG5660, the drives. After you install the basic hardware, you can install the E5600SG controller.
Cabling the appliance
You must connect the two controllers with SAS interconnect cables and connect the management ports to the customer management network to ensure communication.
Connecting the AC power cords
You must connect the AC power cords to the external power source and to the AC power connector on each controller. After you have connected the power cords, you can turn the power on.
Turning power on
You must turn power on to the enclosure, which provides power to the controllers.
Viewing boot-up status and reviewing error codes on the controllers
The seven-segment LEDs show status and error codes when the appliance powers up, while the hardware is initializing, and when the hardware fails and must back out of the initialization. If you are monitoring the progress or troubleshooting, you should watch the sequence of the codes as they appear.
Configuring the management ports
As part of the hardware installation process, you must configure the management ports on both the E2700 controller and the E5600SG controller.
You should verify the connectivity from the appliance management port on the E2700 controller and the E5600SG controller to ensure that they are working, ensure that both controllers have valid IP addresses, and verify SAS interconnect connectivity.
Configuring the AutoSupport tool for the StorageGRID Webscale appliance
The AutoSupport tool collects data in a customer support bundle from all AutoSupport-enabled storage arrays and automatically sends the data to technical support. Configuring AutoSupport assists technical support with remote troubleshooting and problem analysis of the storage management software.
