The power cords for the switch ship separately and are specific to the country of installation. See Power Cord Requirements. The facility power receptacles for the power cords should be located such that the power cords are routed out of the way, either to the sides of the rack or under the floor.
When live power is delivered to the receptacles at the rear of the chassis, standby and main power is made available by the power supplies. When standby power is distributed to the chassis, the management controller is powered on. The main power is supplied for the switch chip and fans.
Use cable ties or hook and loop fastener straps to bundle and secure the cord.
Note - To provide redundancy, connect each power cord to a separate power source. The switch can operate with only one power connection, but there is no redundancy in that case.
The AC LED on each power supply lights green. A moment later, the OK LED lights green. The Attention LED should be unlit. See Switch Administration, checking power supply status LEDs.
If the AC LED does not light, there is something wrong with supplied power.
If the OK LED does not light, there is something wrong with the power supply.
If the Attention LED on a power supply lights, there is a fault in the power supply.
If the Attention LED on a fan lights, there is a fault with that fan.
Note - At this time, power is being supplied to the management controller. The controller is effectively on and booting up. You might see the boot sequence on the management console.
You should feel air going into the fans, and the fan Attention LEDs should be unlit. See Switch Administration, checking fan status LEDs.
