Nexus 7000 chassis mounting rails Detail

Unanswered Question

Planning an install with Nexus 7000 chassis on a 4-post rack.  However, may need to mount the chassis jutting off the front rails.


Does anyone have information on the positions I can change the mounting bracket rails on the chassis to?  3 inches back?  6 inches back?  Centered?


Installation manuals only hint at the possibility and shows the chassis riddled with screw holes.


Thanks.

Thanks, but please see this:

Note item #4 rack mounting bracket.  I would like to know if these can be shifted back.  The dots along the side of the chassis seem to indicate that there are screw holes to allow just that.  However, without a physical device on hand, how can I determine how deep these offset positions are?


There are no details on this in that document.
