Rails for Dell Poweredge R200 and HP ProLiant DL380

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

 

Does anyone know where I could get the Rails for an HP ProLiant DL380 and a Dell Poweredge R200 for cheap?

I've been looking at some stuff on eBay and other websites, but there, the rails cost around 60€... Is that too much? 

I thought they'd cost something in the neighbourhood of 10-20€ for one server... 

 

So, does anyone know where I could get these for cheap?


I love Small Form factor ITX rigs.

or find the cheap ones and bolt weld screw power tool them on in the jacky way which works

The problem I noticed with the server market is that it's flooded with non-techies rather just companies trying to make a quick buck. This is heavily done on sites like eBay.  So, most likely the price could be high for that.  It's why I never finished my 2 servers.

I mean ya they are, but server parts can go up and down because of the non-techies in the market.

US is pretty bad with it.  We get cheap server processors from techies then motherboards that work with them from companies run by non-techies asking too much. xD

Yeah, to me it seems like the printer market. Yo get the printer for $20, but the ink costs you hundreds of dollars.

I thought about just getting some other rails and screwing them to the case  before as well.. But I didn't like that idea all that much because 1) I have to get everything out of the server case before drilling to avoid shorting something with metal dust and 2) because it'd probably be a nightmare to get the rails off again, etc... for maintenance. Also, finding Rails for a Server that heavy roves to be quite hard.. I mean it weighs something like 30kg

It's because nobody buys server rails in the first place(except companies) and the ones the company has are very very specific

Cheaper to use wood and DIY

oh I completely understand why it's a bad idea, I was just saying it was possible, it's not an issue if you use lots of duct take though you could get a shelving unit then and use that (the one I have could fit about 2 abreast and is strong enough to do that and has 5 shelf's so that's 10, you don't stack them, yes it's a problem in terms of you can't slide them out but it would work and they would be easy enough to get at to work with them

I'm also a little worried about setting things on fire with the DL380... I've had this issue a few times so far, where both PSU's would just randomly start getting very, very hot. I've read about it online and it seems to be a common problem with those exact PSU's, but they should still work fine sais HP.. So that's why I'm a little worried about anything that brings wood and that server closer than 10cm.
