Blade server rack move

Hi Experts,

I have to move one BL60 model rack from one location to another location and I am very new about Blade servers.

Thanks in advance.

Assuming you are not actually changing the network information there is little you must do.

For important servers, I'd have an Ignite make_tape_recovery or make_net_recovery done in case someone gets butter fingers and drops the whole thing.
