Rack-mount the ASA
The ASA ships with rack-mount brackets or “ears,” which you can install on the front or the rear of the chassis. Follow these steps to install your ASA in a rack.
Attach both brackets to the sides of the ASA chassis, either to the front or rear.
After the brackets are secured to the chassis, you can mount it in the rack.
Attach the chassis to the rack.
We recommend that you install the chassis with the rear panel facing the cold aisle. (See the following illustration for an example of air flow from back to front.)
What to do next
You can now install the cables and power cord, as described in Connect Cables, Turn on Power, and Verify Connectivity.
