Piece by Piece, coming together

Spent some time this morning before work, building. Unfortunately, the bolts that fit these lucent racks almost don't exist. 12-32 size is almost impossible to find and most racks use 10-32.

The 10-32 bolts I picked up work, but aren't giving me warm fuzzy's. As the rack is aluminum, I think there is a chance of the bolt hole's stripping out.

I'll have more time to get everything configured this weekend. My weekends run Sunday thru Tuesday, due to working in a busy, 24/7 Network Operations Center.

3x 3550's, 2x 2611's, and the remote reboot power strip.

The remote reboot power strip is pretty cool and will be fun to script into use.

The First 3560 came in last night as well, and two more 3550's.

  1. I look forward to seeing your completed lab! I just ordered two 2960s and purchased two Dell Poweredge 210s for my own lab. Since I am a VMware integrator, I wanted to work at that level too. I still need two 3560s and two 1841s for my lab to use the Cisco Switch Lab manual. I used CLN and GNS before and feel I will get a better experience with my own gear.
