| Metal conduit|
|I have no choice but to run CAT6 for a new server in a shallow raceway above several fluorescent light fixtures. The run will be 45 feet. Can I use metal conduit? Will the conduit induce its own EMI? Should the conduit be grounded? Thanks!|

Any conduit should be grounded which in turn will help reduce the EMI from the lights, it is like adding a shield to the cable.
