Mark the Rackmount Location

Identify the location in the rack where you want to place the server. The Oracle Server X7-2 requires one rack unit (1U). The Oracle Server X7-2L requires two rack units (2U). Use the Rackmounting Template to identify the correct mounting holes for the slide-rails.


Caution  -  Always load equipment into a rack from the bottom up so that the rack does not become top-heavy and tip over. Extend the rack anti-tilt bar to prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation.

  1. Ensure that there is at least 1 rack unit (1U) or two rack units (2U) of vertical space in the rack cabinet to install the server.

    See Rack Compatibility.

  2. Place the Rackmounting Template against the front rails, aligning the bottom edge of the card with the bottom edge of the server, and measure up from the bottom of the Rackmounting Template.
