The server rack I have in my closet apparently wasn’t created with having wheels in mind. I noticed a week or two ago that the tabs that are meant ot bolt ito the floor, that I instead bolted wheels two, were buckling and thats why I had trouble rolling the rack around.

The solution?

2 “rails” made of 2x6 and a new set of heavier-duty casters.

The result?

A much taller rack (+6”), but significantly easy to move around. I did, however, install one of the switches and one of the servers upside down. The switch isn’t such a big deal, but the server is currently being used as a platform for a bunch of other servers, so it is not an easy task to flip it around.

Oh well, there is always next weekend I guess!
