Mark the Rail Mounting Hole Locations

Use the Rackmount Guide (alternatively know as the rack template) to identify the correct mounting holes for the shelf rails and cage nuts.

Note -  To ensure the stability of the rack, always install equipment into a rack from the bottom to the top.
  1. Ensure that there is enough vertical space in the rack to install the server.
  2. Place the Rackmount Guide template against the front rails.

    The bottom edge of the template corresponds to the bottom edge of the server. Measure up from the bottom of the template.

  3. Mark the mounting holes for the front shelf rails.

    Refer to the Rackmount Guide template for instructions.

  4. Place the template against the rear rails, and mark the mounting holes for the rear shelf rails.
  5. Continue with the installation by installing the shelf rails.
