Slide Rail Kit

The slide rail kit that comes with your server is called the express slide rail or the tool-less slide rail because it is simpler than older slide rails. It can be used with both square-hole and round-hole racks. The cable management arm (CMA) might come in a separate box.

Included only with Express Slide Rail and CMA combination kit.
Shipping/hardmount hardware

Note - If you want to secure the server for shipping now or in the future, use the shipping hardware. It is not possible to install the shipping hardware after the slide rails are installed. It is better to install the shipping hardware during the slide rail installation.

The slide rail kit comes with the following shipping hardware:
