Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do with the Cable 
Management Arms on my Poweredge 2450??  I am using a Dell 42U rack and a 
Dell KVM switch.  The problem is the CMA can not fully collapse when my 
2450 is installed in the rack.  The lower part of the arm which faces 
the rear of the 2450 whacks the top of the video connector (from the KVM 
switch.)  I have gone through the FAQ about installing the CMA and it is 
correctly installed.  I've called Dell Poweredge support about it and 
they recommended that I contact the sales person which I purchased the 
setup from.  I have not contacted the sales person yet (Chris Braton.) 
 Does anyone have any recommendations first?  This rack and server are 
about 1-2 months old.
