The x4170 m2 Sunfire server, despite numerous Oracle documentation claims to the contrary, is not designed to fit a 19" rack. The body of the server is only 16.75" wide, and the entire server, faceplate and all, will fit through the opening in a 19" rack without touching the mounting plate on either side. The railkit is advertised in various places as 350-1502-01, but the server side rails in that kit (I have one) won't attach to the sides of my x4170 m2 server - the pins and holes aren't even close to lining up. Does anyone know the part number for the correct kit to mount an x4170 m2 in a standard 19" rack?
We have three different rail kits for this machine.

Dang, I replied with a quick thank-you, and then my option to mark your reply as a "Correct Answer" disappeared. I don't think this forum tool likes me much. One should be able to mark *any* answer in the thread as correct at any time without spending a lot of time trying to figure out where the control for that function disappeared to.

I've taken care of it for you and marked Pascal's responses appropriately.
Doing so also completes the thread as "Answered".
