Re-Organise Racks

Osm-cab-layer-22Aug09.png
TV = Monitor + mounting, used with the KVM. Not actually a TV. That would be daft.

Plan of Action

  • remove doors and assorted "other stuff" from the vicinity and from above the racks
  • strip servers out of LH rack and move next door
  • rebuild LH rack @ 70cm depth MEANWHILE rebuild rails at 70cm depth for smaug etc
  • rack servers into LH rack
  • remove servers from RH rack
  • rebuilt RH rack @ 70cm depth MEANWHILE rebuild rails at 70cm depth for all remaining
  • figure the wiggle
  • rack servers into RH rack MEANWHILE attach PDUs to rear of cabs with skyhooks
  • recable everything
  • find somewhere to put the dead pile (Dulcy and the empty box)
  • put all the "other stuff" back into the right place
  • go to the pub^WAGM

ALL DONE - including getting to the pub.
