    Dell Rail Compatability 2450/2550/2650/2850

    Does anybody know if Dell 2U rail kits are interchangeable among 2450/2550/2650/2850 servers?

    Certainly should be compatible, all of the Dell servers we use 1U/2U have been switched between rails, and never come into any problems.

    We had an issue recently where dell started switching from the RapidRail to the Versa Rail (or something like that). Needless to say....36" depth became a problem and I praised rack vendors for making adjustable depth racks.

    The 2450, 2550 and 2650 all use the same rails. I don't have any 2850 units to confirm this one.

    What type of rails do you have? Rapid? Versa? 3rd party?

    Versa Rails because the racks do not have the square holes, but rather traditional screw threading. I do think there is a conversion kit available to use Rapid Rails in non-Dell racks, but not completely sure about that either.
