The express rail rackmounting kit installs quickly, and does not require mounting screws or nuts. The kit and the installation procedures are the same for both the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140 and T5240 servers.
Note - The illustrations used to support the procedure description show a 2U server as an example.
Note - References to left and right are from your viewpoint as you face either the front or the rear of the system.
Note - If your rackmounting kit came with its own instructions, use the instructions in your rackmounting kit instead of the instructions in this section. After performing the server installation, proceed to Powering On the System for first-time power on.
The express rail rackmounting kit has two slide rail assemblies. A slide rail assembly can be installed on either the right or left side of the rack.
Each slide rail assembly consists of a three-section slide rail and a removable mounting bracket.

3 Middle section
4 Rear section
The front, middle, and rear sections form the slide rail. The middle and rear sections have holes for mounting and adjust to fit rack depths from 24 in. (61 cm) to 36.5 in. (93 cm). The front section can be extended to allow movement of the server out of the rack.
The removable mounting bracket slides 14.5 in. (37 cm) out of the slide rail, then locks in place. If you unlock the mounting bracket at this point, it slides an additional 14.5 in. (37 cm) before separating from the slide rail. You can then mount the mounting bracket to the right or left side of the server chassis.
There are six locks in a slide rail assembly. Four are on the mounting bracket. Two locks are on the slide rail.
