[HELP] me not suck at rack mount equipment
So I just got a 42 RU TechRack 19" server rack essentially for free ($1 off eBay comedy bid).
However, I have never actually dealt with server rack's and populating them before. I have a couple of things which are rack-mountable, hence the purchase, including my bigass Norco server case.
Now I get that you screw these things in front first, but I was very much wondering what else I needed to know in this equation? Do you need rails or shelves for particularly heavy servers?
Help me out here. What things do I want? What pitfalls should I know? There's a decent chance that now that this thing is in my house, it may get loaded up fairly quickly since my brothers are in the middle of going all tech startup, saw it and said "wait, we could just stick a bunch of low powered servers in there couldn't we?"
Cancer is when cells stop letting the body mooch off their hard work - clearly a community of like-minded cells should isolate themselves and do the best job each can do, even if the rest of the body collapses!
