Can you rack mount side by side 2 x Aruba 2930 8 Port JL258A's?

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) 

Many thanks

Greetings!

 

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.

Excellent thanks. Good info about the air vents so we can discourage customer from attempting some kind of 'DIY' install.
