DNA: Rackmounting a Datto Networking Appliance



This article provides rackmounting instructions for the Datto Networking Appliance. 

Parts List 

You will need the following parts:

A - 2x ‘L’ bracket ears
B - 4x bracket screws
C - 4x rack mounting screws with fasteners (not included with the Datto Networking Appliance kit)


  1. Fasten the L bracket ears (A) to their corresponding sides of the Datto Networking Appliance (1) using the the bracket screws (B).

  1. Use the rack mounting screws (C) to secure the Datto Networking Appliance to the rack.


  1. Attach the Wi-Fi antennas (D) and LTE antennas (E) to the appliance. Make sure that they do not collide with the rack.

The Datto Networking Appliance may experience signal interference when stored inside a rack.

If you need to purchase an extension kit, contact your Sales Executive for pricing options.
