The following image shows the M4 screws, mounting rails, mounting rail guides, and mounting ears.

  1. Orient the brackets with the mounting bracket ears to the port side of the switch.
  2. Attach the ears to the sides of the switch with four M4 screws per bracket so that the face of the switch is mounted with a 2 inch setback as shown in the image below.
    This way the switch extends 2 inches past the rear EIA rails.

  3. Install the rear mounting bracket to the rear of the switch with two M4 mounting screws as shown below.

  4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the other side of the switch and the other Cisco Nexus 5548UP 10G Ethernet switch.
  5. Install M5 caged nuts in the front of the rack in the bottom, middle, and upper square holes of rack positions U27 and U28 on both the left and right side of the rack.

    Important: Be sure to install the caged nuts on the front of the rack in the center positions of each rack unit that will be occupied by a switch prior to installing the switches. It is not possible to do so later in the process.
