    I did a search on moving servers, but didn't really find anything.

    I will need to physically move a few servers around and ship a few. Is there anything that needs to be done w/ the Mac Servers and XSAN RAIDs before this is done? Do the platters need to be secured or anything like that? Any specially shipping boxes/requirements? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    This may have changed with later models, but I know the G5 XServes came with a little protective plastic thing that you put in the optical drive slot before shipping; I assume it keeps the front of the case from getting pinched down and smashing the disc slot shut.

    Other than that, obviously the boxes they originally came in are going to have the best padding for the systems, but any solid and well-padded box of the appropriate size should work fine. I'd probably remove the hard drive sleds and ship those with extra padding separately (or hand deliver, if someone is driving from old location to new and has the space), but that shouldn't be necessary--just paranoia.
