Is it possible to mount 2 of the Aruba 2930 8 Port switches side by side (JL258A)?
We only have a single 1U gap in the cabinet and need 2 switches installing for resilience etc so ideally require the 2 switches to be mounted side by side.
Dimensions state (wxdxh)
8 port (25.4 x 25.4 x 4.39 cm)
48 port (44.25 x 30.42 x 4.39 cm)

There is no mounting option for putting two 8-port 2930Fs side by side in a single 1U rack slot; beyond being slightly too wide to fit two of them side by side in a standard rack, we do not provide a method to physically attach two adjacent switches to each other for stability.
Additionally, as the 2930F-8G is a fanless switch, both side vents should be left unblocked to allow for proper heat dissipation.
