Install the Shipping Bracket With Cable Trough (Optional)

If you plan to ship the server in a rack with a space of one or more rack units below the server, you must install the Shipping Bracket With Cable Trough to prevent damage to the server. The bracket is required for each server in the rack that meets this requirement.

The Shipping Bracket With Cable Trough is a separately orderable option. For information about ordering the Shipping Bracket With Cable Trough, contact your Oracle Sales representative.

  1. Unpack the Shipping Bracket With Cable Trough and components.

    1. Using your equipment's rack alignment template, or other equipment documentation, locate the first and third rail holes below the rear panel of the server, along the left and right sides of the chassis. [1]
    2. Retrieve a cage nut and hook the bottom lip of the cage nut in one of the rail holes.
    3. Insert the tip of the cage nut insertion tool through the rail hole and hook the top lip of the cage nut. [2]
    4. Using the insertion tool, pull the cage nut through the hole until the top lip snaps into place.
    5. Repeat Step 2a through Step 2d for the remaining cage nuts.
