HP SureStore CD-ROM Server/Tower/Expansion - Installing the Tower Module

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • Verify with your network administrator that a 10Base-T (Ethernet) or 100Base-TX (Fast Ethernet) network connection is ready for the HP SureStore CD-ROM server/tower. Locate the twisted-pair network cable (with an RJ-45 connector).
  • Verify that the HP SureStore CD-ROM server/tower’s power is off.
  • Verify that the power supply input voltage is set according to the power standards in the country of use; set the voltage switch on the rear of the tower to 115 volts or 230 volts. Also verify that the power cord is appropriate for the country of use.
      caution:
    The SCSI bus may be damaged if you connect or disconnect any units when the power is on.
  • If you are extending the HP J3278A SureStore CD-ROM server/tower 7Plus (using its rear SCSI connector), you must complete all cable and termination connections on the towers, and on any stand-alone drives used, before you apply power to the towers or drives. Apply power to the 7-bay tower, or other standalone drives, before you apply power to the HP J3278A SureStore CD-ROM server/tower.
OPTIONAL RACK MOUNTING
You can mount the HP SureStore CD-ROM server/tower in a rack using the HP C2982A CD-ROM Tower Rackmount Kit.
  1. Attach the power cord to the rear of the tower and to the power line source. Do not turn on power yet.
      note:
    If you are also installing the 7-bay HP C2988A SureStore CD-ROM Tower (to the HP J3278A SureStore CD-ROM server/tower), install its power cord now and then switch on its power.
  2. Attach the network cable to the RJ-45 connector on the rear of the HP SureStore CD-ROM server/tower.
  3. On the front of the HP SureStore CD-ROM server/tower, switch on the power. Verify that:
    • The ON/BUSY indicator lights on the HP CD-ROM drives go on.
    • The 4 indicator lights on the server module flash during a power-on self-test.
      When the Status indicator (yellow) stops flashing and remains off, the server/tower is ready for use. Depending on the number of drives in use, this may take a few seconds to five minutes.
      The server auto-negotiates the link speed (10 or 100 megabits per second) and duplex setting (full or half) with other devices on the network.
  4. Press the Stop/Eject button to access the tray of the topmost CD-ROM drive, place a compact disc into the tray, and press Stop/Eject again to close it. Verify:
    • The drive’s ON/BUSY indicator light turns off and the DISC light goes on. If either one flashes continuously, then either the disc is not standard or there is a problem with the drive.
    • The server’s CD indicator light (green) goes on. If it does not, then verify your connections and cycle power (switch power off and wait 10 seconds and then switch power on again) to the HP SureStore CD-ROM server/tower.
      Repeat step 4 for all drives (including the 7-bay tower if used).
