How to install the ESA Kit with OCP servers

ESA kit Assembled Photo Front View

This presentation aims to introduce the structure of ESA kit and demonstrate how to physically install it.

Compatible with Cubby V2 computing sled, this kit makes it easy to transform an 19 inch EIA rack to an OCP rack. We take 8OU 19' standard ESA Kit as an example. 

The official ESA Kit installation document can be download in here. Note: this document is only accesible for MITAC user. 

The official EdgeCore switch installation document can be download in here. Note: this document is only accesible for EdgeCore user.

Build up the ESA Kit: General Structure

ESA kit components

The ESA kit provides a solution so that an OCP V.2 sled can be installed into the a EIA 19” legacy rack. It is adjustable and able to support the depth rail mounting flanges for EIA rack from 24” to 30”. With an ESA kit, you can have EIA standard IT equipment and OCP in the same rack.

Components of ESA are categorized as rail kits, bus bar kits and shelf as shown in the image. 

Any EIA Rack can host an ESA kit, as long as the length, height and depth of the cabinet support the adjustable range of ESA Kit.

 

Build up the ESA Kit: Step 1- Fix Rail kit on both side

ESA kit rail kits

Use the four bars inside the cabinet to fix the rail kits, one rail kit on the left side, and the other rail kit on the right side. 

Please be aware that the length of the rail kit is adjustable, you need to remove the screw before adjusting the length of the rail kit, in order to fit it in the cabinet.

WARNING: the left and right rail kits are different, make sure to look at the "R" and "L" letter on the rail kit.

Build up the ESA Kit: Step 1- Fix Rail kit on both side

  • Prepare small nuts fixing on the bar.
  • The sign "R" means the "right" side, the sign "arrow" means you need to place the rail kit while having the arrow sign point to the upward.
  • Lift up the rail kit and insert in the holes on the front bar
  • You can adjust the length of rail kit by moving the plaque near the back side, insert into the holes in the back bar without re-pulling out the fix in the front.
  • Screwing on the front bar and back bar.

Build up the ESA Kit: Step 2- Assemble Bus bar

Now assemble the bus bar with screws as showing in the photo.

Build up the ESA Kit: Step 3 - Fix assembled Bus bar with Rail Kits

Fix Bus bar with Rail kit

Fix the assembled Bus bar in the back of the cabinet, fixing with the two rail kits on each side.

16U Bus bar with Rail kit

16U Bus bar with Rail kit Sketch

For the 8U bust bar which for Rail Kits(like in above), the junction is downside. But for the 16U bus bar, the junction is in upside.

Build up the ESA Kit: Step 4 - Install ESA Kit Power supply

Image on the left side: This is the power supply shelf.

Image on the right side: This black plastic covers a metal fixture where you need to attach a pair of junctions (red and black). In order to take off this black plastic, you should first remove those 5 screws from the top to both sides.

ESA kit power supply junctions (black and red)

After you remove the black cover, you will see these two metal mounting parts. There is a plus sign "(+)" and a minus sign "(-)" on each side. For the next step, the red junction should be fixed on the (+) side and the black one should be fixed on the (-) side. The vertical sides (with screw holes) should be in parallel as the picture shows.

Image on the left side: Once the position of jonctions are well set, screwing them tightly to the bus bar. Please note that before fixing this part, you need to remove a screw first from the bus bar.

Image on the right side: Once jonctions in the back are fixed, You can place nuts (for fixing the front side of the power supply shelf) on the 5th hole counting from the bottom, one nut on the left bar and one nut on the right bar (facing towards the front of the rack/cabinet). 

Notes: Except install the Rail Kits in above. The power supply shelf needs M6 screw/nut pair to install. The M6 screw/nut was listed in the tool list in above. Which we will need it again when installing swtich.

Insert servers: Step 5 - Insert the shelf

ESA kit shelf

This is a picture of the shelf you received in the components, you shall receive four of them for one standard 19 inch rack.

Insert servers: Step 5 - Insert the shelf

Insert the shelf into the rack.

Insert servers: Step 6 - Insert the server

ESA kit with OCP server

The OCP server is received as the photo presented, you need to put CPU, hard drive, SSD card, etc and then push this server into the shelf.

Insert servers: Step 7 - Install the Switch

Installed EdgeCore Switch

We need to assemble the switch first, like install the attached rail and ears. Then we assemble it to the rack. For the details of how to assemble the switch. You can look at the referench.

Insert servers: Step 7 - Install the Switch

Fix the Switch Cable

After installed the switch. We need to insert the cable and use screw to fix it.
