A – Install Mac Pro Into Computer Mounting Module
Support Note: This manual assumes you have already installed a
RackMac Pro with one Mac Pro into your equipment rack. If you are
adding this computer mounting module as part of a new RackMac Pro
installation, please refer to the RackMac Pro’s user’s guide instead.
1. Remove the RackMac Pro Computer Mounting Module from its
packaging, and then set it on a flat, level surface.
2.Using a Phillips screwdriver loosen, but do not remove, the six screws
securing the computer mounting module’s top bracket to its bottom
bracket (Figure 1).
3. Using the 5/64-inch hex wrench included in the computer mounting
module’s packaging, back out the module’s power switch set screw by
turning the screw counter-clockwise 10 complete turns (Figure 1).

WARNING: Before inserting the Mac Pro into or removing it from
the computer mounting module, you must back out the power
switch set screw to prevent damage to the computer and power switch.
4.Remove the Mac Pro from its packaging.
5.Holding the computer with its ports facing up, very carefully insert the
computer top-first into the computer mounting module as shown,
lining up the Mac Pro’s ports with the openings in the module’s top
bracket. (Figure 2).

6.Adjust the Mac Pro within the computer mounting module so that its
power and HDMI ports are centered in the bracket openings
(Figure 3).
Figure 3
7.Connect the computer mounting module’s Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI,
power, and USB 3.0 cables to the corresponding ports on the computer
(Figure 4).
8.If you are connecting any Thunderbolt cables to the computer, do so
now; otherwise, skip to the next step.
Support Note: If you connect any Thunderbolt cables to the Mac
Pro, Sonnet recommends that you secure them with cable ties to the
computer mounting module’s cables.

9. Tighten the six screws securing the computer mounting module’s top
bracket to its bottom bracket. Be certain to tighten the screws securely
to prevent the computer from moving within the brackets (Figure 5).
10. Tighten the power button's set screw by turning it clockwise just until
the top of the screw is flush with its housing (Figure 5).
11. Connect your computer’s power cable to the computer mounting
module’s power port and to a powered outlet. If the computer does not
turn on by itself, go to the next step. If the computer does turn on by
itself, disconnect the power cable. Loosen the set screw by turning it
1/4 turn counter-clockwise. Connect the power cable again and repeat
this step until the computer does not turn on when the power cable is
connected.
12.Press the computer mounting module’s power button and verify that
it activates the Mac Pro’s power switch and turns on the computer.
If the computer does not turn on, tighten the computer mounting
module’s power button set screw by turning it 1/4 turn clockwise. Press
the computer mounting module’s power button again. If the computer
turns on, disconnect the power cable and continue to the next step.
Otherwise, continue adjusting and testing until the computer turns on
when you press the power button.

Support Note: Sonnet recommends that you tape the hex wrench
to the floor of the computer mounting module for safekeeping in
case you need to remove a Mac Pro in the future.
1.Remove the RackMac Pro rackmount enclosure from the enclosure
into which it is installed, and then set it on a flat, level surface.
2.Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove and set aside the eight screws
securing the front panel to the RackMac Pro’s rackmount enclosure,
being careful to prevent the front panel from falling off (Figure 6). Set
aside the front panel and screws.

6.Using three of the screws that previously secured the blank plate to the
rackmount enclosure, secure the computer mounting module to the
rackmount enclosure (Figure 9).
Figure 9
7.Using two of the screws you removed previously, secure the front panel
to the rackmount enclosure, inserting the screws into the holes next
to the power switches. Verify the power switches operate smoothly
(Figure 10).
8.Using the remaining screws, secure the faceplate to the rackmount
enclosure (Figure 10).
9.OPTIONAL STEP: Apply a bottom cover label to the Mac Pro by
peeling off the backing material, aligning the cutout (the area without

and making sure the words ”Mac Pro” appear level.
