Install HP BLc3000 Enclosure Tower in a Rack?

Dear all,

We have a HP BLc3000 Enclosure Tower and would install it in a rack. Do you know if that is possible?

Thank you.

Kind regards, Matthias

#=============================================
Offered in two different models: the c3000 Enclosure for racking in standard 19 inch racks, or the c3000 Tower Enclosure on casters for sites without racks.

Hi,

I have the 458032-B21, which is the tower version. This is exactly the question: is it possible to convert the tower enclosure into a rack version?

Thanks, Matthias

hi,

in my opinion it could be installed to the rack, but you need to deinstall some tower componnents, but you need still rails .....

PS : HP made for example ML370 rack/tower optimized, in my previous company we made from tower ml370 ==> ml370 rack optimized, without any problem.

Hi all,

Just wondering if nobody ever had to convert the BL c3000 from the tower to a rack version.. Is this really possible?

@mikap: you mentioned the conversion of a ML 370 tower to a rack optimized version. Is this desribed in the manual or somewhere on a website?

Thanks.

Hi

just found the following: http://partsurfer.hp.com/ShowPhoto.aspx?partnumber=432461-001

Is this not exactly what I need to mount the server in a rack?

Thanks,

hi all,

Unfortunately I did not get any feedback from HP itself. Does anybody has an idea how I could solve this problem?

Thanks, Matthias
