multiple packages of screws. Spares are included.

INSTRUCTIONS
• 2-RU WITH RAILS •
CAUTION Due to the appliance’s weight and size, Silver
Peak recommends that two people mount the chassis in a
4-post server rack, using the chassis rails that ship with
the appliance. Alternatively, when using a lift, it’s possible
to install the appliance safely with one person.

Before installing the chassis rail, be sure to remove all external devices
and connectors from the appliance.
‰‰ Check your packing slip to
verify that you have all the
necessary items.
Install the inner chassis rails onto the appliance
1. Included in the shipping package are a pair of rail assemblies. In each
rail assembly, locate the inner and the outer rail.

3. For each side, you’ll need to use the following screws:
•One loose 10#-32 screw for anchoring the rail’s alignment to the
chassis. Here, the size and shape of the hole in the rail is the same
as the one in the appliance chassis.
•Three 10#-32-R screws (already attached to the chassis) for
securing the rail through keyhole slots. Relative to the anchor
screw, one screw is between the alignment screw and the front end
of the appliance.
