Can I reverse the airflow on a DCX 8510-4

  • 1.  Can I reverse the airflow on a DCX 8510-4

    Posted 03-10-2016 08:16 AM

    Hello,

    I was told I could reverse the airflow on the 8510-4 DCX. But can not find the steps need to make the change.

     

    Is this even possible ?

     

    Thanks,

    Paul

    There are two different airflow options (neither are reversable). Back to side airflow and back to front (with exhaust shelf) airflow.

    Do you know the cmds to enable the back to side airflow?

    I can only access this DCX via SSH.

    If it's set up with back to front airflow, you would have to physically be at the director to remove the exhaust shelf and reconfigure the airflow.
