These are all the tools and supplies that may be required:

Depending on the type of storage devices used in conjunction with the HCP system, a lift may be required to install or maintain disk storage trays into a rack. The lift must be rated at a minimum of 400 pounds (182kg).
For installation and maintenance procedures on an HCP system, the following tools may be required:
  • #1 Phillips screwdriver
  • #2 Phillips screwdriver
  • ΒΌ-inch flat-head screwdriver
  • Caged nut tool
  • Wire cutter
Keyboard and monitor
For the installation of the HCP software, or to perform diagnostics and recover the HCP software, you need a USB keyboard and VGA monitor.
Laptop computer
To upload an HCP software update file, license file, or to use the management console you will need to use a browser on a laptop computer.
1Gb CAT6 Ethernet cable
To connect the laptop computer to the back-end network switch, you need a 1Gb CAT6 Ethernet cable. For 10GB systems, a 1Gb adapter for the switch will be provided.
PDUs with C13/C19 power outlets
To provide power to the HCP system during installation, you need two PDUs with C13 and/or C19 outlets as appropriate for the system being configured. You need these PDUs only if the HCP system will be shipped without a rack.
