I don't see how but I'm certain someone will disagree.

My thought is this. You are trying to place a square peg in a round hole. If the Vault could do this, don’t you think the engineers, designers and advertising dept would have listed that as an option? If you place it in your rack vertical and it works for a year ...then stops working, would you say the player failed? When it had feet on the bottom, but you mounted it vertically to fit in your rack? Find a place to put it on its feet.... that’s my suggestion. Or get a new rack. BTW I have a Vault2 and it works beautifully...the way it was designed to work.
Another option to explore if you can. I have two audio systems and two vertical racks. I found that running out of equipment space is a real issue. If you have enough height on 1 shelf in your rack you can make or buy a small metal, wooden or plastic table/platform. Think small miniature coffee table where the 4 legs fit around the component on your rack shelf but the underside of the table clears that component. Thus a new shelf/platform for your Vault. If you look at my two systems you will see the small wooden table I made for this purpose. Just and idea...
I ripped a bunch of CDs a while ago. Add a few here and there. I can pull them from the Vault over the network and put them on my Aurender’s SSD in FLAC and it sounds pretty good. Honestly since having Qobuz for 4 years now and Tidal for a few months I can’t imagine not having a steamer. I still play LPs but mostly stream since it has come a long way in just a few years.
