9U rack arrangement for 2 switches

Hi all

I have one 9U rack. I have to arrange 2 switches and 2 patch panels

One switch is managed(24X100 2X1000) and the other is unmanaged(24 X 1000).

Have horizontal cable managers also.

I have to connect 30 PCS.

Out of the 30 PCs, 24 would get connected to the managed switch and 6 would connect to unmanaged switch.

The two switches would be connected using GB links.

FInally from the managed switch, uplinking is done(using the second GB link)

I am confused about what is the the standard way to arrange them.

Option 1:

  1. PP (For managed switch)
  2. SWITCH (managed)
  3. PP (For unmanaged switch)
  4. SWITCH (unmanaged)

Option 2:

  1. SWITCH (unmanaged)
  2. SWITCH (managed)
  3. PP (For managed switch)
  4. PP (For unmanaged switch)

And lots of others....

I am new for this and a clear explaination of how its done would be appreciated (including cable manager, if needed).

Help on arranging cables also would be great.

Thanks !
