    It appears to be electrical tape.

    As an electrical appliance, it was the right choice.

    They were lucky to find 3 over there! I have tones of them here..


    @Ric_ Ref cables....

    Actually the installers who put the system in did not tidy them up, it's on our helpdesk to finish the work off for both server rooms.

    I was impressed when my technician and PFY admitted to this one (my techy has worked in IT for a LOT of years)

    The excuse was its a Stone computers chassis and its front folds out so it was "right" when it was unfolded....

    At least they got it lining up with the U markings. Most of our racks, installed by a predecessor (my favorite saying at the moment), installed most of ours with a 1/3 U gap between each item to allow cables to run in between the switches.
