Subject: c1teststand rack mounting for CDS upgrade 

[Tega, Yuta]

I keep getting confused about the purpose of the teststand. The view I am adopting going forward is its use as a platform for testing the compatibility of new hardware upgrade, instead of thinking of it as an independent system that works with old hardware.

The initial idea of clearing 1X7 cannot be done for now, because I missed the deadline for providing a detailed enough plan before Monday power up of the lab, so we are just going to go ahead and use the new rack as was initially intended and get the latest hardware and software tested here.

We mounted the DAQ, subnet and dolphin IX switches, see attachement 1. The mounting ears that came with the dolphin switch did not fit and so could not be used for mounting. We looked around the lab and decided to used one of the NavePoint mounting brackets which we found next to the teststand, see attachment 2.

We plan to move the new rack to the current location of the teststand and use the power connection from there. It is also closer to 1X7 so that moving the front-ends and switches to 1X7 should be straight forward after we complete all CDS upgrade testing.
