Make sure your data center meets all site preparation requirements before you install the storage system. In addition, if you are not using a Hitachi Universal V2 rack, make sure the electrical specifications of your rack meet the power requirements of the storage system.

  1. Inspect all materials for signs of damage. If you see damage, discontinue the installation and contact your Hitachi Vantara representative.
  2. If your storage system did not arrive factory-installed in a rack, loosen the band around the cartons and open all boxes. Remove all packing materials, envelopes, and boxes from the cartons.
  3. Retain all packing materials and cartons in case you need to transport or ship the storage system in the future.
  4. Check the items you received against the packing list. If any items are missing or damaged, discontinue the installation and contact your Hitachi Vantara representative.
  5. Place the keys for the front bezel in a safe place. You will need them to attach the bezel to the front of the controllers.
  6. If your storage system arrived already factory-installed in a rack, skip step 2 and proceed to step 3.
