rp2470 rack

We have an A1884A 19" 1.6m rack and want to use it to house a rp2470. Alternatively, we were quoted a A4901A E33 1.6 19" rack from vendor with a E7674A PDU and E7903A pwr cord. If we want to go with the A1884A that we already have, will it work and what are we missing?
Thanks.

Re: rp2470 rack

Yes you can use the older 19" rack cabinet with the rp2470's, you just need a rack kit for the rp2470. The A400 / A500 one work just fine, the part number are A5810A & A5811A

Hope this helps.

Re: rp2470 rack

Thanks for reply. Great. Going further, two more related questions please.
1. Can a HP2100 disk array also fit inside that A1884A cabinet?
2. Can a C2786A cabinet work also and if so would the same rack kit still be required or a different one?

Re: rp2470 rack

Yes, the DS2100 will fit in the 19" cabinet, that rack kit is A6244A. Yes the 2.0 cabinets will work also and you can use the same A6244A rack for that as well.... its all 19" wide.

Re: rp2470 rack

Hello, thanks for the answers on this. Another question has come up about a CD holder and a tape holder for the rp2470. Do these items come with the rack or with a cabinet...and are they orderable separately? Situation is we are moving the rp2470 to another location with its rack. We are unable to move the cab because it is being shared by another box and must stay in place. We are told that we will req. the cd and tape holders because they are unable to be moved. Thanks for any insight on this.

Re: rp2470 rack

The CD & DAT holder for the rp2470 your referring to is probably the C4318A Smart SureStore Full height rack enclosure and it does not come as part of the rack kit for the rp2470. The C4318A will run you about $300.00 in the used market with all of the terminators and cables.

Re: rp2470 rack

Alright so are we saying that the CD and DAT holders come with the disk storage rack kits and not the server rackit? If that is the case..would CD and Dat holders come with the HP DS2100 rack kit? I ask this because we are moving (1) the server and its rack kit and (2)a DS2100 and its rack kit . But we are not able to move the cabinet....so we need to know if either of these would automatically give us the cd and tape holders? sorry for confusion here. and thanks in advance for your help sorting this out.

Re: rp2470 rack

it sounds like all you need is the media enclosure, the C4318A comes with the hardware to rack it into a 19" cabinet. You can then plug your DAT & CD drive into it, provided that you are referring to a C4318A when your saying CD & DAT holder.

Re: rp2470 rack

Jesse, you have been a great help on this. I am going with the C4518A as u have suggested. But just one more question..What is the difference between it and the much more expensive C7508BZ (HP tape array 5300 factory rack) and the Q1592B (HP dvd+rw array field module)? upon reading their descriptions, seems as if they serve the same purpose...but I know I must be missing something. Thanks.

Re: rp2470 rack

The do have the same purpose but the 5300 is a later model than the Smart Storage arrays. With the 5300, you get more options as far as future expansion meaning there are higher caliber drives that go in 5300 as opposed the Smart Storage arrays
