Installing the SAN Switch 2/16
For proper airflow, the SFP media side of the SAN Switch 2/16 must face the
rear of the rack. This mounting allows air to enter from the front of the rack and to
exhaust at the rear of the rack, similar to other rack-mounted equipment. This prevents
switch overheating, which may cause it to fail.
Use these steps to install the switch in the HP System/e rack.
1. Verify that all required hardware is available.
2. Choose a mounting location in the rack for the switch.
3. Install each of the two mounting brackets with one M5 Torx head screw with
captive lock washers as shown in
