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...!!

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:

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.
