We have a shared 2 post relay rack in a shared room in our building (Chatsworth brand). It only has patch bays on it (using 12U out of 46). We'd like to prevent anyone from just walking into the room and patching onto our network. The room is locked, but multiple businesses have access to the room. We only own two of the six or so patch bays.
Re-racking is an option. I'm told to act as if I'm managing the building. The absolute best solution would be some sort of partitioned colo enclosure (with a lock for each partition). I feel that buying a complete 4 post colo rack just for patch bays is overkill. Since I'm relatively new to this, I sure could use some advice from those more experienced than I.
