DL580 G2 new rails won't fit in rack

I have an older server rack that has round holes with 10/32 size and thread bolts. Evidently the hp rails are used for the "square type" racks. How do I modify? Any ideas? Maybe I can buy like a 42U rail and put them in front of my other round hole rack rails on the cabinet?

Ideas?

if you can find one, you need the 3rd Party Rack Kit 287528-B21

 

 

3rd Party Rack Kit 287528-B21

 

NOTE: The rack kit (PN 287528-B21) provides support for any rack, square hole or

round hole, (including HP Rack System /E and HP Systems), with an adjustment range

from 23 ½" - 34" deep.

NOTE: The Third party rack kit is required for round hole racks or for square hole

racks that do not conform to the adjustment range of the standard rail that ships with

the server.

Re: DL580 G2 new rails won't fit in rack

Hello @asnoble

 

As Jimmy Vance has said, page 26 of the HP ProLiant DL580 Gen2 QuickSpecs shows 3rd Party Rack Kit (PN 287528-B21) provides support for any rack, square hole or round hole, (including HP Rack System /E and HP Systems), with an adjustment range from 23 ½" - 34" deep.   NOTE: The Third party rack kit is required for round hole racks or for square hole racks that do not conform to the adjustment range of the standard rail that ships with the server.  Which is an excellent find.  With the age of the server, to find the 3rd Party Rack Kit (PN 287528-B21) I recommend Googleing the part number as there are several online retailers that have that part.
