We're relocating our data center, 60 feet away.
Rack details below, 15 items.
Moving the entire rack is not an option.
I need to minimize the down window, no HA.
Every item needs to be un-cabled, un-racked, re-racked, and re-cabled.
I've identified some cable docs for the various features.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to label each cable in the rack.
Some examples I came up with below

For a 5877 EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer -- serial number, slot, slot position. Example RCH7733 - C1 - 3
For a 5887 12X I/O Drawer PCIe, No Disk - serial number, G1BY017 - P1-C2-T3

Any thoughts from the group?
