Re: How to get my supervision to back off

said by Modus:

Whoa a is that a HotBrick???? I haven't seen one of those in years, they aren't still around are they?

LOL I had the same response when I saw that pic in his thread when he built that storage array. Unfortunately they are still around and I don't think they have really updated anything in the last several years.

Edit: Where are your cable management arm support trays that plug into the rear of the rails?

They are in the trash where they belong. I measured everything so i knew exactly how long my cables needed to be and used Velcro to rap up the cables. I hate cable management arms because they just get in the way of everything.

You know, I had the same thought. My cable management arms on my 2950's stick out past the back of my rack forcing me to leave off the rear door (not really an issue but still, it'd be nice to have the option). I have thought about measuring and bundling with velcro to secure off the slack needed to pull the server out.

In my case though, I only have rails for two of the servers, the third was a recent ebay purchase and we have not gotten rails for it yet. For securing the non-rail server, I've found that a bent T bracket similar to this one works wonders to hold up the back of the server.

The Dell cable management arms can be a pain (especially if the servers are right on top of each other) but the end result looks really sharp except in the case of the OP. They do require some time to implement neatly.

Anyone that has delt with a Hot Brick in the past has that same response "are they still around". I personally haven't seen one in the wild for about 4 years.
