Buy the proper equipment for your server.

  • The DL380 G4 was introduced in 2004.
  • The DL380 G6 was introduced in 2009.

It's a large enough time difference that the physical chassis of the servers has changed. A visual inspection of the two servers in your possession would reveal that.

Your path of least-resistance is to find a rail kit on ebay using part number 574765-001.
