I finally have all the equipment I need to build the lab. I also managed to get a Skeletek C24U rack, and it looks really nice. The fun already starts with assembling the rack as it comes in a relatively small box, including 6 pieces and a whole bunch of nuts and bolts.
After 45 minutes or so the rack is fully assembled and ready to rack the first pieces of Cisco gear.
After about two hours later I also racked all the Cisco equipment I have into the rack, including two PDU’s for some power juice.
Next step will be to put all the cabling in place. And hopefully the two octal cables (cab-octal-async) I ordered will arrive shortly, so I can also connect all the console outputs to the terminal server/router.
