sunray_2003, you missed the QP update: you need version 0.9.167, or your QP won't show latest postings, or your posts won't be submitted.

You know what's sad...
The page I was looking at detailing that my DL380 G3 was a 2U - scrolled down to the bottom and it described it as
Height: 2U (3.5")

Oh well - I had a customer with me and had to get the info quick...
Thanx again.
