Hardware Deployment

Hardware Deployment

This section describes how to install key management servers, connect their cables, and power on the servers.


  • The installation positions of the two key management servers have been determined.
  • Cables and tools required for hardware installation have been prepared, including:
    • Serial cable (included in the product package)
    • Power cable (included in the product package)
    • Network cable (not included in the product package)
    • Phillips screwdriver (not included in the product package)
    • (Optional) USB-to-serial cable (not included in the product package)

Prepare the USB-to-serial cable if the maintenance terminal has no serial port.


  1. Determine the installation location.

    The key management server needs to be installed on the standard 19-inch racks. Determine proper positions on the rack to install the two key management servers. Ensure that there is enough space in front of and behind the server for cable routing and connection, ventilation, and maintenance.

  2. Wear ESD gloves and ESD wrist straps.
  3. Unpack the key management server.
  4. Install key management servers on the rack.
  5. Use the network cable to connect the data network port 1 of the key management server to the management network port of the storage system through the switch.
  6. Insert one end of the power cable to the electric socket at the server back, and insert another end to the external AC power module.
  7. Press the power switch on the front panel.
  8. Put the baffle plate on the front panel, then insert and turn the key.
  9. Repeat Hardware Deployment to Hardware Deployment to install and power on another key management server.
  10. If the maintenance terminal has no serial port, use the USB-to-serial cable to connect the USB port of the maintenance terminal to the serial port of the key management server.
