Hot-swap Fan installation/removal - (NF 8500R - Type 8681)

Hot-swap fan installation/removal

The server comes with three hot-swap processor fans (labeled and numbered 1, 2, and 3) in the front of the processor housing assembly at the front of the server, and three hot-swap I/O fans (labeled and numbered 4, 5, and 6) behind the hot-swap drive bays.
Each fan has an LED; the fan LEDs are amber in color.
A fan LED is lit only when the fan needs replacement.


  1.  The illustrations in this section might differ slightly from your hardware.
  2.  You do not need to turn off the power to the server to replace a fan.
  3.  Replace a fan that has failed as soon as convenient to maintain the redundant cooling capability.
  4.  The top cover is in place during normal operation.
     If the server is on, do not leave the top cover off for more than 30 minutes at a time.
