Our datacentre has recently installed blanking plates to cabinets to fill gaps. Since the switch only takes up half the depth, one end of the cabinet is now blanked over where I'd expect the switch to ventilate.
Which way should a 3750G-24-TS and a 2970 be fitted to ventilate properly?
Which way do they pull air?
How do you solve blanking the switch when it doesn't extend to the back of the rack?
