Caution - You can replace an AC input filter while the server is powered on. However, to minimize any potential risk of damage to equipment or personnel, consider turning off AC power to the server instead.
Caution - If you cannot power down the server, replace no more than one input filter at a time while the server is running.
Caution - Do not disconnect the server end of an AC power cord while the power cord is still conducting AC current. Disconnect the IEC 60309 connector from the facility's circuit breaker first.
For cable routing information, refer to the Installation Guide. The guide also includes cable tying information.
See AC Power Cord Configuration for a table of suggested names for the power cords.
By labeling these components, you will be able to connect the power cords to the appropriate outlets after servicing the server.
Note - If you have numbered these components using a numbering sequence unique to your facility, ensure that you can still determine the AC input filter number associated with each component.
You can remove the AC power cord with the server powered on. Alternatively, consider powering off the server instead.
If the wrong power supplies are off, you have selected the wrong AC power cord.
The illustration shows the IEC 60309 plug.
Note - The color of the connector might be blue or red and the number of pins can vary, depending on the regulations in your locality.
