Hi all: Our main office is moving to a new building. I of course have to move all our servers. We use DL385 G1 and G2. As part of the move, I am installing new racks and rail systems so all I have to do is disconnect the servers, slide them out of the rack at our old location, move them and slide them into the new rack and hook them back up. I will have all cabling in the racks pre-installed and new UPSs too.

I am worried about the actual physical move of the servers. My plan is to "car pool" them in four or five cars all at once. I am wondering if I should move the servers with the HDDs in the units, or number and remove the HDDs and transport them separately?

Thanks, Chris.
