Here are some pictures of the final rack installation. It took all of 12 hours to complete; we only ran into one problem – a switching loop due to a cable that was accidentally plugged in when it shouldn’t have been. It was lots of fun dealing with the deficient existing tangled cable installation, but everything is online and operational.
The whole project was a lot of fun, despite it taking a lot longer than I thought it would. Overall it was a success in that it did help clean up the equipment area. I still have to re-cut and replace some of the extra long cabling in the rack, I also have to label some. It’s not as neat as I would like it, but it’s getting there.
