IBM Does have various length cords available but most partners don't want to work that hard to find them. The old standard '1422' (#14 wire, 22 ft long) was the standby and left *WAYTOOMUCH extra cable everywhere. I hated them.

I ALWAYS use the correct length such that when the server is fully extended the cables just nicely reach the PDUs. I purchase red and blue to distinguish the two supplies for all servers, drawers, etc. I happen to use colorpowercables.com because they are simple to order from. For drawers I use the standard cables and for the server the thicker #14 cables which also have C15 ends, though that doesn't matter here.

I do the same for fiber and Ethernet, and only use thinnet Ethernet, which is about the same size as the fibers cables. I use the correct length and velcro them into a nice loop just long enough so the server can be extended for maintenance.

My question is, since I'm tired of power cables stretching all over the place looking like cobwebs do I order short 2-3' cables just long enough to reach the PDU's,
or do I use power cables long enough to stay plugged in while you slide the units out for maintenance?
Summary: Are the parts hot swappable?
