Rackmount Checklist

Complete the following checklist before you install the server into a rack.

Rackmount Considerations
Is the distance between the front and back mounting planes between a minimum of 610 mm and a maximum 915 mm (24 inches to 36 inches)?
Is the clearance depth in the front of the front mounting plane (distance to the front cabinet door) at least 25.4 mm (1 inch)?
Does the target rack meet the following minimum load capacity:
  • 19 kg/rack unit

  • 785 kg total

Is the rack a four-post rack (mounting at both front and back)?
Two-post racks are not compatible.
Do the horizontal opening and unit vertical pitch of the rack conform to ANSI/EIA 310-D-1992 or IEC 60297 standards?
Does the rack have RETMA rail support?
Does the rack support Oracle cable management arms (CMAs)?
Does the rack support installation of Oracle vented and solid filler panels?
Is there sufficient space for cable harnesses and the power distribution units (PDUs) in the rack, if required?
Can a label with the server serial number be printed and attached to the target rack?
Did you label the network cables that will connect to the server?
Does the rack support installation of standard Oracle PDUs?
If not, then complete this checklist.
Can the customer provide an equivalent pair of PDUs?
Can the customer provide two PDUs with capacity of 110kVA per PDU?
Can the customer provide a single PDU and its circuits to support the power requirements in case a PDU fails?
Can the customer ensure power loads are evenly distributed across all circuits of a single PDU?
