Installing the nodes in a system cabinet

Before you cable your nodes together, you must install the system cabinet, nodes, and any disk shelves, and connect the nodes to the network. If you have two cabinets, the cabinets must be connected together.

  1. Install the system cabinets, nodes, and disk shelves as described in the System Cabinet Guide. If you have multiple system cabinets, remove the front and rear doors and any side panels that need to be removed, and connect the system cabinets together.
  2. Connect the nodes to the network, as described in the Installation and Setup Instructions for your system.
  3. Connect the system cabinets to an appropriate power source and apply power to the cabinets.

The nodes are now in place and connected to the network, and power is available.

Proceed to cable the HA pair.
