VIAVI Rail Kit ("60G" appliances)
This rail kit is for the 60G appliances and JBODs.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold your chassis. It should be a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated. Avoid areas where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields are generated. A nearby grounded power outlet is required.
How to attach the rails
Rail assemblies must be attached to the chassis and rack before inserting the system into your rack.
Prerequisite(s):  
The box your chassis was shipped in should include:
two sets of rail assemblies
two rail mounting brackets
mounting screws and washers to mount the system into the rack
 
This rail will fit a rack between 26.5" and 36.4" deep.
Caution: Do not use a two post "telco" type rack.
1. Identify the inner rack rails.
The chassis package includes one pair of rack rail assemblies in the rack mounting kit. Each assembly consists of three sections: an inner rail that secures directly to the chassis, an outer rail that secures to the rack, and a middle rail which extends from the outer rail. These assemblies are specifically designed for the left and right side of the chassis and are labeled.
 
Figure 53: Rail kit diagram
 
Both the front chassis rails and the rack rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions. First, it locks the sever into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack (its normal operating position). In addition, these tabs lock the server in place when fully extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of the rack when pulled out for servicing.
2. Release the inner rails.
Each inner rail has a locking hatch. This latch prevents the server frm coming completely out of the rack when the chassis is pulled out for servicing.
a. Pull the inner rail out of the outer rail until it is fully extended as illustrated below.
b. Press the locking tab down to release the inner rail.
c. Pull the inner rail all the way out.
 
Figure 54: Extending and releasing the inner rails
 
Caution: Do not pick up the server with the front handles. They are designed to pull the system from a rack only.
3. Install the inner rails on the chassis.
a. Identify the left and right inner rails (labeled)
b. Place the inner rail firmly against the side of the chassis, aligning the hooks on the side of the chassis with holes in the inner rail.
c. Slide the rail toward the front of the chassis to hook the inner rail onto the side of the chassis.
d. If desired, secure the rail to the chassis with a screw.
e. Repeat for the other inner rail

Caution: Do not pick up the server with the front handles. They are designed to pull the system from a rack only.
4. Install the outer rails onto the rack. Each end of the assembled outer rail inlcudes a bracket with square pegs to fit into your rack holes. If you have an older rack with round holes, modification kits are available.
a. Align the square pegs on the front end of the rail with the square holes on the front of the rack. Push the rail into the rack until the quick release bracket snaps into place securing the rail to the tack. Keep the rail horizontal.
b. Adjust the rail to reach just past the full depth of your rack making sure that the rear bracket is level with the front bracket.
c. Align the square pegs on the rear end of the rail to the holes on the rack and push the rail into the rack until the quick release bracket snaps into place, securing the rail to the rack.
d. Repeat the procedure for the other outer rail assembly.

Caution: The rack stabilizing mechanism must be in a place, or the rack must be bolted to the floor before you slide the unit out for servicing. Failure to stabilize the rack can causde the rack to tip over. Always install the first server to the bottom rack first.
How to install the system into your rack
Caution: It is dangerous for a single person to off-load the heavy chassis from the rack without assistance. Be sure to have sufficient assistance supporting the chassis when removing it from the rack. Use a server lift.
Caution: Do not pick up the server by the front handles. They are designed to pull the system from a rack only.
This section provides information on installing a chassis into a rack unit with the rails provided. There are a variety of rack units on the market, so the assembly procedure may differ slightly. Also refer to the installation instructions for your rack unit.
1. Confirm that chassis includes the inner rails (a), also confirm that the outer rails (b) are installed on the rack.
2. Align the chassis rails (a) with the front of the rack rails (b).
3. Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both both sides. You may have to depress the locking tabs while inserting. When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, the locking tabs should click into the locked position.
4. If screws are used, tighten the screws on the front and rear of the outer rails.
5. Insert and tighten the thumbscrews that hold the front of the server to the rack.

How to remove the server from the rack
Caution: It is dangerous for a single person to off-load the heavy chassis from the rack without assistance. Be sure to have sufficient assistance supporting the chassis when removing it from the rack. Use a server lift.
1. Pull the chassis forward out the front of the rack until it stops.
2. Press the release latches on each of the inner rails downward simultaneously and move the chassis forward in the rack.
