Install a Power Supply
Installing the power supply is a hot-plug operation. You do not need to
power off the server before installing the power supply.
Note - The power supply automatically transitions from standby voltage to main power when you
attach the power cord.
- Consider your first steps:
If you are replacing a power supply, remove the faulty or obsolete power supply first, then return to this procedure, Step 2. See Remove a Power Supply.
If you are installing a new or an additional power supply, see Preparing for Service.
If you are installing the power supply as part of another component's removal or installation procedure, go to Step 2.
- Align the power supply to the location where it installs into the chassis.
The power distribution board connector is toward the chassis, and the release tab
is on the left.
- Slide the power supply into the chassis until the power supply seats and
the release tab clicks.
- Attach the power cord.
- Consider your next steps:
If you installed the power supply as part of a replacement operation, go to Step 6.
If you installed the power supply as part of another component's removal or installation procedure, return to that procedure. See Component Service Task Reference for assistance.
- Finish the installation procedure.
