If it was that easy, I wouldn't be bothering the list. No, these are the
The front is straightforward. Unfortunately the mechanism at the back
needs to be loosened first, and is completely obscured by the side
pillars of the rack, so I have to work by touch. The video above is no
help whatsoever. You can see it a little better in these photographs:
There is a hidden spring lever that a) retracts the centre, slender pin
and b) releases a lock that allows the lower blue pin to be pushed back.
But the top pin remains stubbornly in place. ISTR this is a red herring
and the whole bracket is supposed to push back as a unit - there are two
sliding joints (like on a door chain) where it is attached to the main
rail - but can I find what's locking it in place?
The really annoying thing is I told this guy it would take me half an
hour to re-rack and reconfigure his server, and that was on Tuesday.
