    ProLiant Linux Installation Overview & Planning Attach Cables Bundles of cables should not be “tie-wrapped” with a tie-gun. These fasteners create pinch points on the cables that can crush the dielectric material and create impedance discontinuities. Rather, cables should be bundled using velcro strapping or other less compressive bundling techniques.
