Hi can a hp proliant that is specified to be 69,85 cm in length fit into a 800mm closed rack. No air holes at the front of the rack. But there is a cooling unit attached to the rack. There will be a cat 6 copper LAN cable at the back and c13 plug(right angled if nessecary)
I don’t know.
- What the of rack is this?
- Why is it closed?
- Are there security concerns?
- Is the server the only device in the rack?
More context is better than less…
I tell people that modern HP servers are incredibly efficient and can run in a variety of conditions. The thermal and cooling control available in a DL380p Gen8 server is quite comprehensive. If you just have one, you can toss it on a shelf at normal room temperate and be fine. I wouldn’t go to extremes to accommodate the server.
