DCO Adding Patch Panel or Patch Rack Above Cabinet

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Kaan Kutlug on 2017-03-24


Hello,

My customer's datacenter has 4U Patch Racks above each cabinet. I want to model this in DCO. Is it supported or what is the workaround? Is there any chance it will be available in the future versions? I attached the patch rack picture just to give you an idea. many data centers are using this solution nowadays. 

Kind regards

Hi Kaan,

Modelling patch panels/patching enclosures above racks is unsupported - we have a similar feature request in our system and I will go ahead and add this to the existing case.

Currently the only supported option (or work around) I can think of, is to use rack mounted patch panels.

Kind regards

I had the some problem. My workaround was to use higher U racks. For example there is a standard 42U APC rack and above that installed 4U "mini rack" then I represented in DCO with a 46U custom rack.
