Where are the installation instructions for the rail kit.
asy-00985-03 kit-7001
4 pages of A4 paper… 4 links and nothing that points to a simple PDF installation guide.

Why must we jump thru hoops and waste time for such a simple matter?

Hi Steve,

Thank you for writing to the forum and I am sorry that you had difficulty to get the necessary information. We have noted your feedback. Our website management team does monitor and keep on improving the website.

On the Arista website, the documents are categorized based on the products (platforms) and not on the individual parts. So, the platform for whom you require the rail kit will have the installation for the rail kit as well. Since different platforms use different rail kits, this categorization helps to keep all the hardware-related information about parts on a platform in one location.

For example, if we consider a 7280 Gen 3 platform, then please see the following URL:

hit the "Hardware" tab, then select the Product Family Documentation. The rail kit information is under Rack Mounting the switch section.

PDF versions are also available on the same page under the same "Hardware" tab.

Hope this helps.
