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.

  -Attention- 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 that has the following label attached.

Hazardous voltage, current, and energy levels are present inside any component that has this label attached. There are no serviceable parts inside these components.
  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.
  2.  Remove the power supply 3:
    1.  Remove the blue shipping thumbscrew from its  hole 5 on the power supply, if it has not  already been removed.
      Note:  You do not need to replace the shipping thumbscrew.
    2.  Remove the power-cord strain-relief bracket 4, if one is installed.
    3.  Grasp the handle 6 on the power supply and  pull the handle toward the center of the server;  then, slide the power supply out of the chassis.
      Note:  During normal operation, each power supply  bay should have either a power supply or  filler panel installed for proper cooling.
  3.  If you are not installing a replacement power supply:
    1.  Disconnect the power cord for the power supply that you removed.
    2.  Install a power supply filler panel; then go to step 4.

     If you are replacing the power supply:
    1.  Place the handle 6 on the power supply in the  open position, and slide the power supply into the chassis.
    2.  Gently close the handle 6 on the power supply  to seat the power supply in the bay.
    3.  Verify that the ac Power light 7 and dc Power  light 9 are lit, indicating that the power supply  is operating correctly.
      Caution:  If you install a strain-relief bracket option  over the end of the power cord that is  connected to the device, you must connect  the other end of the power cord to an easily  accessible power source.
    4.  Install a power-cord strain-relief bracket 4, if desired.
  4.  If you have other options to install or remove, do so  now; otherwise, go to 'Completing the installation'.
