Which rails for S5000?

Hi, 
I'm researching the part number that is needed for a Dell S5000 rack rails. (Or where to buy them?)


I know they aren't ReadyRails, as they're listed as "generic rails". Maybe they're Force10 rails, since that's where I download firmware updates - but it has a Dell badge on it.

The manual includes diagrams on how to install them, but no part number.

I already found exactly what they look like from this Dell S5000 rack install video:

And I know all of it's detailed measurements from this Dell rail compatibility matrix document:

Again, I am simply looking for the Dell part number, or where to buy them (besides a generic template answer of "contact dell")

Thanks all

Hi,

It looks like part number N243X. All of the 1U switches should work with this.

Nope, wrong rails. I mentioned it does not use ReadyRails. Have a look at any of the 3 links in my post.

Dell S5000 is different from most Dell switches.

The other part I found was PD4W5

ASSY,BRKT,REAR,MET,4PST,S-SRSD.

But I don’t have an image of it to see if it matches those links.

Thanks Josh, seems like these are the right ones.
I can't find it online from the usual places, which Dell dept should I attempt to contact?
