I'm reconfiguring some racks and I'm trying to get the cooling optimal. I can't remember though what the minimum distance you're supposed to have at the back of the racks from the wall is. I know that there has to be space there for fire regulations and cooling, but does anyone know what it is?

Enough for a big man to walk in and move freely, you wouldnt want people get hurt or electricuted when they do the wiring.  I would say 40 inches.

About cooling, depend on your computer room air conditioner(crac) setup,  If you have a room AC, then in the middle of the room.  Rack and Row AC setup doesnt have that restrictions.
Be careful about return air if you are using the room AC.
