8. Mounting the Device

The HP switch and routing switches can be installed on a desktop or in a rack.
WARNING: The HP 9304M chassis exceeds 40 lbs. (18 kg), or 47.7 lbs.(21.6 kg) when fully populated with
modules and power supplies. Also, the HP 9308M chassis exceeds 55 lbs. (24.9 kg) or 69.1 lbs. (31.3 kg) when
fully populated with modules and power supplies. TWO OR MORE PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED WHEN LIFTING,
WARNING: Do not use the handles on the power supply units to lift or carry a routing switch.
WARNING: Make sure the rack or cabinet housing the routing switch is adequately secured to prevent it from
becoming unstable and/or falling over.
Mount the devices you install in a rack or cabinet as low as possible, with the heaviest device at the
bottom and progressively lighter devices installed above. HP recommends that the HP 9304M or HP 9308M be
installed at the bottom of the rack or installed with a shelf and mounting brackets.

Desktop Installation

Set the device on a flat desktop, table, or shelf. Use a sturdy surface in an uncluttered area. You may want
to secure the networking cables and power cord to the table legs or other part of the surface structure to help
prevent people from tripping over them.
Make sure that adequate ventilation is provided for the system—a minimum of three inches (3") clearance is
recommended on all sides.
NOTE: Make sure the air flow is unrestricted around the front, sides, and back of the switch or routing switch.
Proceed to "Connecting Power to the Device" on page 2-17.
Rack Mount Installation – Chassis Devices
NOTE: You need a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver for installation.
Remove the rack mount kit from the shipping carton. There will be two L-shaped mounting brackets and
mounting screws.
Attach the mounting brackets to the sides of the routing switch as illustrated in Figure 2.7.
Attach the system in the rack as illustrated in Figure 2.7.
Proceed to "Connecting Power to the Device" on page 2-17.
