Who hasn't had trouble mounting computers in racks? Many servers supplied by broadcast automation providers as well as corporate IT vendors do come with some rack-mounting hardware, but many are designed for computer-type racks (the ones with large square holes that accept threaded inserts) or they are too deep or not wide enough to fit into the broadcast rack.
Many times a one- or two-unit rack shelf can be used to hold a server in place. If there are rear rack rails, another shelf mounted in the rear can add extra support for the deeper servers. A more permanent and professional solution can be found at www.racksolutions.com (903-453-0801). This company specializes in rack mount kits, and they have a complete index online for most IBM, Dell and HP hardware. The company can also design and build custom rails or sliders for just about anything that will fit inside a rack. Most rack kits also include a cable management system, which will look good and keep cabling under control while maintenance is performed.
