rails - removing rails - removing ginoitalo (Programmer) (OP) 1 Nov 08 14:15 I have a few 3U servers that are on a 4 post rack. the rails allow the server to slide out and lock in place.Question is:How do I get the server off the rails ?pressing the clips on the side of the rails only allow the server to slide back in from the lock position. RE: rails - removing HelloNair (IS/IT--Management) 2 Nov 08 10:13 You need to remove the rail-to-system screws to do so. However please use the knobs ( which comes with rack mounting kit ) before removing the screws. I would suggest to use the rack mounting installation guide of the specific model. There should be a session for the Installation on rail assembly. That would give you a clear idea how it was installed on the rack. Also refer the safety guides before the activity. RE: rails - removing departmentg33k (IS/IT--Management) 1 Dec 08 19:59 Also, I've found that (depending on the size/model/style) there can be small blue/purple tabs on the top-side of the rail that allow the tabs of the server to dis-engage from the rails. Of course, as HarryNair mentioned, using the knobs is super important, as dropping a server from mid-rack to floor would be bad for both server and toes. :)Good luck!
