HP N54L rack conversion?

Recommended Posts

panicos

Hello,

 

I have an old n54L which has freenas on it and runs very well for ages and i plan to keep it for a longer period. The problem now is that all my other gear is mounted in a rack and the microserver case does not quite fit there so i would like to just take everything inside it and throw it in a rackable case (don't care if it is 2/3/4U, just to be short depth). Also the case should be designed for a NAS solution with disk caddies in front.

Does anyone happen to have some suggestions about this?

All of the Microservers use non-standard motherboards. It would require a good deal of customization to get it to fit a standard case. If the goal is to keep using the server and get it in a rack, I would just put it on a rack shelf.

Yes, i know and you are right. I was hoping there is a elegant solution for a conversion, in order to save some space in my rack and to arrange all the devices accordingly.
