Center Rack-Mounting a Catalyst 6506 and Catalyst 6506-E Switch Chassis

This section describes how to install the Catalyst 6506 and Catalyst 6506-E switch chassis in a telco-style rack using the center rack-mount kit (WS-C6597=). For the Catalyst 6506 and Catalyst 6506-E switch chassis, you need to install the two center rack-mount kit brackets to the bottom sides of the chassis.


Note Use this kit in place of the rack-mount brackets shipped installed on the chassis, and only when you are center rack-mounting a Catalyst switch in a telco-style rack.



Note To make handling the chassis easier, you should remove all modules and power supplies before you install the chassis in the rack. The illustrations that show the modules and power supplies in the following procedure are for reference purposes only.


To install the Catalyst 6506 or Catalyst 6506-E switch chassis in a telco-style rack using the WS-C6597 center rack-mount kit, perform these steps:


Step 1 Remove the two brackets and the bag of screws from the packaging.

Step 2 Attach the two brackets to the sides of the chassis with 4 M4 screws on each side. (See Figure 1.)

Figure 1 Attaching the Center Rack-Mount Kit Brackets to the Catalyst 6506 and Catalyst 6506-E Switch Chassis

Step 3 Position the chassis in the rack and secure the center rack-mount kit brackets to the telco-style rack with 8 12-24 x 3/4 inch or 10-32 x 3/4 inch screws (4 on each side.). (See Figure 2.) Use a level or measuring tape to verify that the chassis is level in the rack.

Center Rack-Mounting a Catalyst 6513 Switch Chassis

This section describes how to install the Catalyst 6513 chassis in a telco-style rack using the WS-6513-RACK-MNT center rack-mount kit. In this procedure, the two lower brackets are used as a shelf and are not attached to the chassis. The two upper brackets are attached to the chassis and are secured to the telco-style rack.


Note To make handling the chassis easier, you should remove all modules and power supplies before you install the chassis in the rack. The illustrations that show the modules and power supplies in the following procedure are for reference purposes only.


To install the Catalyst 6513 chassis in a telco-style rack using the WS-6513-RACK-MNT center rack-mount kit, perform these steps:
