Installing the Model 2010 Appliance in a Rack

May 16, 2011

The following sections explain how to install the Access Gateway Model 2010 appliance in a rack:

  • Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails for the 2010 Appliance
  • Installing the 2010 Appliance in a Four-Post Rack

Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails for the 2010 Appliance

The 2010 appliance is delivered with a set of inner rails in two sections: inner rails and inner rail extensions. The inner rails are attached to the appliance and do not interfere with normal use of the appliance if you choose not to install the appliance in a rack.

The following illustration shows the sections of the outer rails for the Model 2010 appliance and how you should attach them to the rack.

To identify the sections of the rack rails for the 2010 appliance

  • Attach the inner rail extension to stabilize the appliance within the rack.

Installing the 2010 Appliance in a Four-Post Rack

The steps for installing the 2010 appliance in a four-post rack are:
  • Installing the inner rail extensions on the appliance
  • Installing the outer rails to the rack
  • Installing the appliance in the rack

To install the inner rail extension

  1. Place the inner rack extensions on the side of the appliance, aligning the hooks of the appliance with the rail extension holes. Make sure the extension faces outward like the preattached inner rail.
  2. Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
  3. Secure the chassis with the two screws.
  4. Repeat the above steps to mount the rack on the other side of the appliance.

The following illustration shows how you should attach the right-side rail rack sections to the appliance.

When the rails are attached to the appliance, install the outer rails to the rack.

To install the outer rails to the rack

  1. Attach the short bracket to the outside of the long bracket. The pins must be aligned with the slides. Both bracket ends must face the same direction.
  2. Adjust both the short and long brackets to the correct distance so the rail fits tightly into the rack.
  3. Secure the long bracket to the front side of the outer rail with two M5 screws and the short bracket to the rear side of the outer rail with three M5 screws.
  4. Repeat the above steps for the second rail.

When the rails are installed in the rack, you can install Access Gateway.

To install the appliance in the rack

  1. Confirm that the appliance includes the inner rails (A) and rail extensions (B). Confirm that the outer rails (C) are installed on the rack.
  2. Line up the rails on the appliance (A and B) with the front of the rack rails (C).
  3. Slide the appliance rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both sides. You might have to depress the locking tabs during insertion. When the appliance is pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the locking tabs click.
  4. (Optional) Insert and tighten the thumbscrews that hold the front of the appliance to the rack.

Installing the 2010 Appliance in a Two-Post Rack

If you are installing the appliance in a two-post (Telco) rack, follow the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only difference in the installation procedure is the positioning of the rack brackets to the rack. Space them apart just enough to accommodate the width of the Telco rack, as shown in the following illustration.
