    Please don't! The rack looks so pristine and tidy. Adding cables is only going to make it ugly.

    Ditto to that: don't cable it! - It's the equivalent of geek porn at the moment..

    Or if you have to buy some 25cm patch cables!

    So's mine but I haven't even got a cab
    Very frustrating as most things that I need right now are either on my computer (under polythene) or on the internet - erm not connected as no cabinet! Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

    I'm hoping for a better day too - managed to get the core up and running but fibers to the other buildings are still not live. Have also realized that I will need another UPS as when I plugged in the new SAN the UPS could not take the load...!!
    With a bit of luck should have the fibers working, then it's case of migrating 200 gigs worth of data over...

    just need the discipline to not go all birds nest. Also, some horizontal cable managers and a door would be a visual improvement.

    I'm leaving the side panels and door off as:

    1. It's in a locked room now [ my office is so much quieter now its been moved ]
    2. No one will have access to it apart from me the NM and Caretaker
    3. After turning the SAN on the temp rocketed it up
    4. Save faffing around when working in there.

    Do correct me if I'm wrong but are you not supposed to have at least the sides on to improve the airflow? (think I might of heard this in some datacentre mag someday)

    Yes, it forces air to flow in a certain direction, where as otherwise cold would just fall down and hot raises.

    In a large data centre with airflow management then yes, otherwise no. I have known some racks where the side panels are part of the structural integrity of the rack and the rack frame can twist without the panels on.

    Nothing but a pile of chips at the moment, do it justice with some good cable runs.

    Colour coded, and nicely bundled.
