    Install the MX104 Router in the Rack

    The router can be installed horizontally in a rack or cabinet.

    Two people are required to install the MX104 router. The chassis weighs approximately 32 lb (14.5 kg). To install the chassis (see Figure 3):

    1. Ensure that the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance.
    2. Position the router in front of the rack or cabinet.
    3. Have one person grasp both sides of the router, lift the router, and position it in the rack, aligning the mounting bracket holes with the threaded holes in the rack rails. Make sure the chassis is level.
    4. Have the second person install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
    5. Visually inspect the alignment of the router. If the router is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side, and the router should be level.
