Rack-mounting a 5800AF-48G/5820AF-24XG switch
Attaching the slide rails to the rack
You must install slide rails for rack-mounting a 5800AF-48G or 5820AF-24XG switch.
To attach the slide rails to the rack:
Identify the rack attachment position for the slide rails.
Install cage nuts (user-supplied) in the mounting holes in the rack posts.
Align the screw holes in one slide rail with the cage nuts in the rack post on one side, and use
screws (user supplied) to attach the slide rail to the rack, as shown in
Repeat the preceding step to attach the other slide rail to the rack post on the other side.
Keep the two slide rails at the same height so the slide rails can attach into the chassis rails.
Figure 16 Installing the slide rails
Mounting the switch in the rack
This task requires two people. To mount the switch in the rack:
Wear an ESD wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is correctly grounded.
Verify that the mounting brackets and chassis rails have been securely attached on the two sides
of the switch.
Verify that the slide rails have been correctly attached to the rear rack posts.
Install cage nuts (user-supplied) to the front rack posts and make sure they are at the same level as
the slide rails.
Supporting the bottom of the switch, align the chassis rails with the slide rails on the rack posts, as
the mounting brackets are flush with the rack posts.
Use screws (user-supplied) to attach the mounting brackets to the rack, as shown in
17. Work with another person to slide the chassis rails along the slide rails until
