When the power cords are connected to the system, the power supply LEDs light and the SP OK LED will blink rapidly while the service processor (SP) is booting. The SP OK LED will be illuminated solid green once the service processor has successfully booted. After the service processor has booted, the Power/OK LED on the front panel will blink slowly, indicating the host is in standby power mode. In standby power mode, the server is not yet initialized or powered on.
Caution - Do not operate the server unless all fans, component heatsinks, air baffles, and the top cover are installed. Damage to server components can occur if the server is operated without adequate cooling mechanisms.
Note - Do not apply main power to the rest of the server until you are ready to configure a preinstalled operating system or perform a fresh install of an operating system. At this point, power is supplied only to the SP and the power supply fans.
