Installing a TaiShan 200 (Model 5280) 36-Slot Node

Installing a TaiShan 200 (Model 5280) 36-Slot Node

Installing a TaiShan 200 (Model 5280) 36-slot node into the cabinet includes sliding the node into the cabinet, fastening the node, and checking the installation.


  • Operations described in Installing a Huawei Cabinet or Checking a Third-Party Cabinet have been completed.
  • Holding rails have been installed.
  • All required tools have been prepared, including M3 to M6 Phillips screwdrivers, M6 screws, and protective gloves.
  • The CPU, DIMM, riser card, PCIe card on the riser card, and PCIe card of the node have been installed. If any of the parts is not installed, see section Replacing Parts of a TaiShan 200 (Model 5280) 36-Slot Node in Parts Replacement to install it.


TaiShan 200 (Model 5280) 36-slot nodes are applicable to FusionStorage OBS 7.0.1 and later versions.

  • A fully configured TaiShan 200 (Model 5280) 36-slot node weighs up to 57 kg. Arrange for at least four persons to carry it and ensure that they wear protective gloves to avoid personal injury.
  • Install components into a cabinet from bottom to top to prevent the cabinet from falling over.


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves.
  2. Install the node.

    1. Pull out inner rails from holding rails until the inner rails cannot move, push the release buttons upward, and remove the inner rails from the holding rails, as shown in steps 1 and 2 in Figure 8-35.

    1. Align the screws on the node with the notches on the inner rails, push the node inwards until you hear a sound, and ensure that the latches eject and completely block the screws to affix the node to the inner rails. See Figure 8-36.
      Figure 8-36 Installing an inner rail
    1. Arrange for at least four persons to lift the node, align the inner rails on the node with the holding rails, and push the node into the holding rails, as shown in Figure 8-37.

  3. Optional: Install disks.

    1. Fully raise the ejector lever and push a disk into the chassis along the guide rails until it does not move. See step 1 in Figure 8-40.

    To ensure favorable heat dissipation, insert disks in the sequence of disk slot numbers. If disk modules or PCIe cards are not fully configured, install filler panels into vacant disk or PCIe slots.
