Item level: 15 items, 15 colors. Buy 15 rolls of flagging tape, one for each item. Wrap each cable end by that item's color tape.

Cable level: use unique flagging tape for each matching plug & socket on each item.

Result: every item has a unique color and each cable end has the matching color. Within each Item group, each cable's secondary flagging color mates to it's matching connector.

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....

Thank You
