Are there any 3rd parties that make mounting brackets for the 506e? Is
yes, would this hypothetical bracket include a handy spot for the
external AC/DC converter?

thanks...

Any number of 3rd party rack-mount small shelves or trays should work.

But you'll probably get sticker stock for what they usually go for.

I personally, have only had a couple people spring money for trays
for any of the numerous small firewalls I've installed (ie. NS 5GTs,
or FortiGate 50As). I don't normally do 506e's, but the ones I've seen
out in the field and datacenters are usually just sitting ontop of one
of the machines in the rack.

Cisco PIX 506/506E Firewall Quick Start Guide:

PDF Page 4

Step 1

Place the chassis on a flat, stable surface. The chassis is not rack
mountable.

--------------------------------------------

However, keep in mind that Cisco Repair will have a custom rack mount
kit for the Cisco PIX 506E available for delivery starting the last
week of September, 2006.

http://www.bradreese.com/cisco-big-iron-repair.htm

This Cisco PIX 506E custom rack mount kit is designed to mount your
Cisco PIX 506E in the center of a 1.25U space in your rack.

Furthermore, the Cisco PIX 506E custom rack mount kit includes a space
for the power supply so it will no longer be flopping around loose in
your rack.

Hope this helps.
