ML350 G9 Tower to Rack Conversion Kit - Doesn't fit my rack

Hi there

we have recently replaced an ML350 G6 server (with its HP tower to rack mount kit) with an ML350 G9 server. we bought the tower to rack conversion kit (726567-B21) and fitted the kit to the body of the server, however although i am installing it in the same rack space as the original - the new rails are just that little bit shorter than the previous version, and are about 2cm too short to mount in my server rack. I cannot see any way of adjusting them to get round this, has anyone got any suggestions other than putting a shelf in place? The old rails are not the same fitting as the new ones, so i cannot use them. I want it to be safe if we have to pull it out for maintenance by a single engineer.

any thoughts anyone?? Any magic answers??

thanks :)

I don't know the dimensions of the rail kit, but I think you can extend it about 20 centimeter from minimum to maximum - still too short? Probably a lot of work, but in most cases the vertical rails are adjustable too (bad solution for a full equipped rack).


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
