A new way to wire a server closet.

Posted: October 20th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Networking Rack, Servers | No Comments »

Tim from the UK recently sent these pictures in. He says:

“Well I turned up on site today to fit a phone system UPS which attach to the back rail of the cabinet. Unfortunately the electricians had installed some sockets and ignoring the fact that there is a huge ceeform socket box blocking a few U (this doesn’t affect our kit), they installed it on a 1cm thick board and then mounted the rails onto that. Needless to say our kit doesn’t fit (you can see the battery box in the last picture) and the school were wondering why the fold-out KVM wouldn’t slide in all the way. Pure genius.”

Here are the pictures:

The pipe coming through the rack... Read that again.. THE PIPE coming through the damn rack! WTF?!?!?

Who puts electric like this in the closet? Taking up "U" space?

Morons!

Thank you for the pictures Tim.

Nothing like having the space for a cable chase between your two racks… and not using it… Hmmmm.. Maybe that is the hot zone… Can’t block the hot zone…….

I once worked in a room like this. We ate our lunch in the nice cool server room. We then changed out cards and plugs with nacho chip cheese on our fingers and undid cables with wing sauce on our hands. We then took the salt and through it over our shoulders for good luck. Nothing ever happen to the room… Except for that horrible ant problem… I don’t know how that happened….

Seriously… What are people thinking? How is this evenly humanly possible? And not even color coded?? I guess Big Bird came in here and went to work on this. WTF
