Power supplies are hot-pluggable. That is, the server does not need to be powered off to remove or replace a power supply. However, the two power supply configuration is the minimum configuration for the server (not recommended). The server cannot operate on one power supply.
An animation of the procedure to remove a power supply is available. See animation showing power supply installation.
Before You Begin
If the power supply is in a fault state, the amber Service Action Required LED is on.
The power supply release handle is located at the bottom of the power supply. The handle clicks when the locking mechanism is released.
This action removes the pawl from the locking slot.
Pull the unit out far enough to grab it with your hands.
Caution - Airflow and temperature-related issues. Power supply slots contain an air vane that lowers when a power supply is removed from its slot. This device maintains proper airflow and cooling within the server.
