Mounting the switch in the rack
Do not hold the handle of the fan tray, power supply, or the back cover of the chassis, or the air vents of
chassis. Any attempt to carry the switch with these parts might cause equipment damage or even bodily
After placing the switch on the slide rails, do not let go right away because this might tip the switch,
damage the switch, or cause bodily injury.
To mount the switch in the rack:
Move the chassis to face the rear of the chassis towards the front of the rack.
Use a minimum of two people to lift the switch by using the handles or supporting the bottom of the
chassis until the bottom of the switch is a little higher than the slide rails on the rack.
HP recommends that you use a mechanical lift for moving your switch.
Place the switch on the slide rails and slide the switch along the slide rails until the mounting
brackets on the switch touch the front rack posts, as shown by callout 1 in
Attach the chassis to the rack with mounting screws.

If the mounting holes in the mounting brackets cannot align with the cage nuts on the rack, verify that the
bottom edge of the slide rail aligns with the middle of the narrower metal area between holes and that the
cage nuts are installed in the correct holes.
