Anvil! Hardware Assembly
AN!Wiki :: Anvil! Hardware Assembly
How you configure your foundation pack, Striker dashboards and Anvil! nodes will depend on what brand and model of equipment you purchased. Here we have guides for the various components that we have experience with.
APC SmartUPS With AP963x Cards
So far as we know, this tutorial should apply to all AP7900 series PDUs.
So far as we know, this tutorial should apply to most Raritan PX2 series PDUs.
This is the typical dual-Anvil! node pair load out in half rack systems.
|Warning: In areas prone to flooding, move everything up 2U. This will give you an extra 89cm of ground clearance before rising waters would hit the bottom UPS.|
|Note: Be sure to set the PDU rack ears in their half-way back position so that they are recessed back from the rails. This provides clearance for the cable tray and loops.|
We've found that putting a 1U space below each PDU makes it a lot easier to tie off cables to the management rail, give room for the loop and ease access to the plugs. Cables going to PDU 01 are routed through U7 and the cables going to PDU 02 are routed through U5. The network cables are routed through U9.
The Striker dashboards are placed on the shelf and their cables route to the left, between the front and back rails. This configuration allows the shelf to be extended without resistance from the cable harness.
If physical security is not a concern, a monitor, keyboard and mouse are placed on the top of the rack and routed through the top cable race down into the rack. This allows the rack to act as a standing desk when direct access to the Striker dashboards is needed.
