Cur,

Please could you reword your question here? I gather you have 3 HP DL 380 G6 Server and would like to purchase 2 Dell R710 servers, but the rest is a bit vague?

No idea what that means.

As far as racks go, check what you have.  The holes are either round or square (requiring cage nuts).  You have 2 posts or 4 posts.

If 4 posts, check the depth.

All of the servers will list the type of mountings available: 2-post or 4-post; the depth: XX-inches; and the weight.  You can't load up 5 servers in a 2-post relay rack only rated for 300#.

Most servers fit a standard 19-inch rack made by any manufacturer.  Some of the Sun stuff doesn't unless you buy adapter plates.

Dells will fit in an HP 10000 series G1 or G2 rack if that helps, but really the rack could be anything as all we know so far from the question is that it currently has a DL380 in it. How high it is doesn't really matter.

I don't see "standard":

Available in sizes:
-12RU to 45RU heights
-545, 675 & 855 depths
-605 & 765 widths


From this post:
PE R710 has a mounting depth range of 27 1/4" to 29 3/4" and an overall depth of 35 3/8"


545 mm = 21-3/8 in
675 mm = 26-1/2
855 mm = 33-5/8

So, if you have an 855 mm deep rack with standard 19" upright spacing, it should fit fine.

Although the max. usable depth for the 855 rack is listed as 715mm (28-1/8 in)...so with doors, etc. it might not fit.

Sorry, I use open racks that are pretty deep, so I don't have that problem with cables, etc. at the rear.  Also don't have the front door obstructing the panels/covers at the front.
