No, but you can believe this. The extension rack should be on the right side (called R1).

Hope this helps!

OK, for this XP model you have the choice, but better to discuss this with your HP representative.

Hope this helps!

Re: Adding a second rack extension to an XP10000

I'm the HP guy that will install this XP.
I can't find a document that says it must be in the right.
So i think it can be in the right or in the left side. no matter

Re: Adding a second rack extension to an XP10000

Have a look into the manual bundle - 04inst3.pdf - procedures for right and left side installations are there. If in doubt, call somebody who knows this better ;-)

Good luck!

Hope this helps!
