Background: Upon returning from his summer sabbatical, Mr. W started to conduct a routine inspection on the equipment room. Stepping into the equipment room, Mr. W. nearly fainted in the heat, and he rushed to his office to enjoy cool air. At the same time, because of undesirable ventilation and air conditioner faults, the temperature in the equipment room exceeded 40°C and caused all devices to break down. Seeing alarms being reported continuously, Mr. W felt helpless and didn't know what to do. Is there a solution for Mr. W?

Inspection steps:

Step 1 Observe the thermometer and hygrometer to check whether the ambient temperature and humidity are within the normal range.

Step 2 Check the power supply of the equipment room to ensure that the power supplies of controller enclosures and disk enclosures are normal.

Step 3 Ask a professional organization to test and handle the particles and corrosive gas in the equipment room.

Internal Rack Inspection

Step 1 Check whether the high-voltage cables and low-voltage cables are on the two sides of the rack, namely, whether power supply cables and service cables are separated.

Step 2 Check whether power supply cables and signal cables are placed in order.

Step 3 Check whether cable labels are clear and securely fastened.

Step 4 Check whether unoccupied slots are covered by filler panels for good ventilation and neat appearance.

Step 5 Check whether power supply cables are securely plugged in to external power sockets and the storage device's power ports.

Step 6 Check whether signal cables are securely plugged in to the storage device.

Step 7 Check whether ground cables are securely connected to the grounding clip and the rack ground terminal.

Step 8 Check whether power cables are placed in two groups (redundant) and are connected to power supplies correctly.

Step 9 Check whether connections to host ports are correct.

1.         For iSCSI host ports:

a)         1 Gbit/s iSCSI host ports:

Check whether network cables are connected to host ports, application server ports, or switches correctly.

b)        10 Gbit/s TOE (TCP Offload Engine) host ports:

Check whether optical fibers are connected to host ports, server ports, or switches correctly.

2.         If Fibre Channel or FCoE host ports are used, check whether optical fibers are connected to host ports, application server ports, or switches correctly.

Step 10 Check whether management ports are connected to the network where the maintenance terminal resides.
