CSACS-1121 Series Appliance Overview

The CSACS-1121 Series appliance (see Figure 2-1) is contained in a standard shelf-rack enclosure. The appliance weighs from 24.25 lb (11.0 kg) to 28.0 lb (12.7 kg) depending on what options are installed in the appliance. It measures 1.75 inches high x 17.3 inches wide x 22.0 inches deep (44.5 mm x 440.0 mm x 559.0 mm). These dimensions do not include the rack handles.

The CSACS-1121 Series appliance is configured for AC-input power and has a single auto-ranging AC-input power supply, mounted in a standard 19-inch (48.3 cm), 4-post equipment rack (using the rack-mount brackets provided). The CSACS-1121 features include:

Microprocessor—Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4-GHz processor with an 800-MHz front side bus (FSB) and 2 MB of Layer 2 cache.

Four synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM) slots that are installed with 4 GB.

Two 250-GB SATA hard drives installed.

A fixed RJ-45 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T network interface connector (located on the rear panel).

One slimline DVD-ROM drive (located on the front panel).

One DB-9 serial (console) port (located on the rear panel).

Front-to-rear airflow blowers using two 40-mm exhaust fans and ducting for the CPU and memory, two 40-mm exhaust fans built into the power supply, and one PCI exhaust fan.

Expansion slot support—One PCI-X (located on the rear panel).

Four USB 2.0 ports (two located on the rear panel, two on the front panel).

One PS/2 keyboard port (located on the rear panel).

One PS/2 video monitor port (located on the rear panel).

One DB-15 serial (video) port (located on the rear panel).

Rear-access cabling.

The CSACS-1121 appliance is normally shipped with a rack-mount hardware kit which includes either brackets or rails that allow the CSACS-1121 to be positioned in a 4-post equipment rack. For more information, see Chapter 4 "Installing the Cisco 1121 Secure Access Control System Hardware."


Note The rack-mount hardware kit does not include a 2-post equipment rack.


Product Serial Number Location

The serial number label is located on the front panel of the CSACS-1121 Series appliance, at the lower Left. Figure 2-2 shows the location of this label.

Figure 2-2 CSACS-1121 Appliance Serial Number Location


Note The serial number for the CSACS-1121 Series appliance is 11 characters long.


Cisco Product Identification Tool

The Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool helps you retrieve the serial number of your Cisco products.

Before you submit a request for service online or by phone, use the CPI tool to locate your product serial number. You can access this tool from the Cisco Support website.

To access this tool:


Step 1 Click the Get Tools & Resources link.

Step 2 Click the All Tools (A-Z) tab.

Step 3 Select Cisco Product Identification Tool from the alphabetical drop-down list.

This tool offers three search options:

Search by product ID or model name.

Browse for Cisco model.

Copy and paste the output of the show command to identify the product.

Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before you place a service call.

You can access the CPI tool at:

http://tools.cisco.com/Support/CPI/index.do

To access the CPI tool, you require a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at:
