Hadn't thought of the pullout tab, although that seems kinda flimsy.
Yeah, you could put the asset tag in bios and even display that on the
front lcd screen, but that doesn't help when they want to scan the
barcode.  I was kinda thinking maybe putting it on the release button
on the left of the server that you hit to pull the rack forward,
although it might be a tad small (this is on an 610, the older ones
that have thumb screws obviously that wouldn't work).
