Cable the system cabinets according to the site-specific information and diagrams provided in the staging documents. Do not connect site power at this time. The task of connecting the power subsystem is a joint effort between the Teradata system installation team and the local electrician. Teradata installers will prepare the system to the point of connection to site power. The customer is responsible for connecting the site power to the system. Teradata installers will then commence with the initial system power-up.
