Hot-Swap Power Supply Removal

Hot-Swap Power Supply Removal

The server comes with one power supply. You can add a second power supply to provide redundant power. Each power supply has two status indicators, see 'Power Supplies' for information about the status indicators.
  You cannot hot swap a power supply if the server has only one power supply installed.

Refer to the illustration in 'Hot-Swap Power Supply Installation' while you perform the steps in this procedure.

To remove a hot-swap power supply:

Never remove the cover on a power supply or any part (power backplane and AC box) that has the following label attached.

Hazardous voltage, current, and energy levels are present inside the power supplies, power backplane, and AC box. There are no serviceable parts inside the power supplies, power backplane, or AC box.

  1.  If the server has only one power supply installed,  turn off the server and peripheral devices (see 'Preparing to Install Options'),  otherwise, go to the next step.

     Before removing a functional power supply, set  the Power switch on the power supply to the Off  position.

  2.  Set the Power switch on the power supply that you  are removing to the Off position.
  3.  Remove the power supply -4-:

    1.  Remove the shipping screws -9- from the power  supply, if they have not already been removed.

      Note:  You do not need to replace the shipping  screws.

    2.  Remove the power-cord strain-relief bracket  -10-, if one is installed.
    3.  Grasp the handle -5- on the power supply and  pull the handle toward the center of the server,  then, slide the power supply out of the chassis.

    4.  Note:  During normal operation, each power-supply  bay should have either a power supply or  filler panel installed for proper cooling.

  4.  If you are not installing a replacement power supply:

    1.  Disconnect the power cord for the power supply  that you replaced.
    2.  Install a power-supply filler panel, then go to step

     If you are replacing the power supply:

    1.  Place the handle -5- on the power supply in the  open position, and slide the power supply into  the chassis.
    2.  Gently close the handle -5- on the power supply  to seat the power supply in the bay.
    3.  Make sure the Power switch -6-on the power  supply is in the On position.
    4.  Verify that the AC Power light -7- and DC Power  light -8- are lit, indicating that the power supply  is operating correctly.

       When the power-cord strain-relief bracket  option is installed on the power cord, the  server must be plugged to a power source  that is easily accessible.

    5.  Install a power-cord strain-relief bracket -10-, if  desired.

  5.  If you have other options to install or remove, do so  now, otherwise, go to Completing the Installation.
