This procedure describes how to install brackets into a system equipped with the universal rack mounting kit.
The following picture shows the shipping bracket kit.
See the following figure.
Note - The front shipping bracket includes eight threaded holes (3) used for storing unused screws. When the shipping brackets are not installed, the bracket holds the long screws used to install them. When the shipping brackets are installed, it stores the short screws that were used before the shipping brackets were installed.
They will be stored there to be used when you remove the shipping bracket.
Caution - Do not remove the bottom screws unless you are certain that the upper screw (3) is in place. Otherwise, the server could fall.
Use four screws (2) to fasten it to the rack. Do not finish tightening these screws. They should be tight enough to hold the bracket in place, but you should still be able to move the bracket slightly.
For square-hole racks, use the two screws that you removed in Step 5.
For round-hole racks, use either 10-32 x 10 or M6 x 12.
The bracket should be fastened to the posts, but loose enough to move slightly.
If necessary, loosen the screws enough so that you can move the bracket, and then tighten them after pushing it against the bottom of the server.
Caution - To prevent damage to the server during shipping, the bottom shipping bracket must rest firmly against the bottom of the server.
