Thanks for the answer...

but i would like to know if i will be able to install the 350G3 in my IBM rack-mount just with the materials given with the server (ie IBM rack mount and HP rack mount are compatible).

I don't want to see that i have a compatibility problem when the servers are here....

Any HP information on the web about that ?
Thanks

Re: Proliant ML350G4 rack mount compatibility

Hello,

I'm not certain about the ML350 G4, but I had to install a DL380 G4 into an IBM rack recently. The IBM rack is not as deep as an HP 10000-series rack (by about 5-10 cm), but both HP and IBM racks have the same square hole format. The new DL380 G4 rails are depth-adjustable, so they did fit, but when they were shortened enough, they looked a little bit unstable to me. One of the pins holding the 2 parts of the rack rail was almost hanging out. Wish I had a picture of it. It could explain it a lot better. Sorry! By the way, some DL360G3 and DL380G2/G3 were in the same rack, and had no problems.
The ML350s probably have different rails, so I can't give you exact information for those servers.

Regards,
Stephen

As per the quick specs the server comes with a universal rail kit, so it should fit into a IBM rack.
