The Arista 7020 switch is mounted onto a four-post rack by assembling two rails onto the rear posts, sliding the switch onto the rails, and then securing the switch to the front posts. The installation kit provides the following four-post mounting parts:
  • Two six-hole mounting brackets
  • Two rail-rods
  • Two rail-slides
The rail-rods and rail-slides assemble into two identical slide-rails. Each chassis side has attachment pins that align with bracket holes. Pin orientation is symmetric and equidistant, supporting bracket placements where the flange is flush with the front switch panel, flush with the rear panel, or not flush with either panel. Each bracket hole includes a key-opening for placing the bracket flush with the chassis and then locking it into place.
Important: Attachment pins must engage at least five of the six bracket holes.

The following figure shows examples of a proper bracket mount configuration.
