I was recently given the opportunity to install an Isilon NL-series solution for a customer. Overall, the installation went great, but, having never installed one, I ran across some small hiccups that could easily be avoided in the future.
Despite what the installation documentation conveniently leaves out, be sure to install the rack rails 1U above the bottom of the unit. I made the typical assumption that the rails would mount flush with the bottom of the unit but quickly discovered this was not the case. Beyond that, it’s pretty self explanatory.
She’s quite beautiful, if I do say so myself! 😀
