Remove a Power Supply

  1. Prepare the system for power supply removal.

    See Take Antistatic Measures.

  2. Identify which power supply requires replacement.

    A lit amber Fault-Service Required LED on a power supply indicates that a failure was detected. You can also use the Oracle ILOM show faulty command at the Oracle ILOM command line prompt (->) to identify a power supply failure.

    Alternatively, to list all known faults in the server, log in to the Oracle Solaris OS and issue the fmadm faulty command, or log in to the Oracle ILOM service processor from the Oracle ILOM Fault Management Shell and issue the fmadm faulty command. For more information about how to use the Oracle ILOM Fault Management Shell and supported commands, refer to the Oracle ILOM User's Guide for System Monitoring and Diagnostics in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 5.0 Documentation Library at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

    Note -  The fans of a failed power supply might still be spinning when the system is powered on. You can remove a power supply while the fans are still spinning.
  3. Gain access to the rear of the server where the failed power supply is located.
  4. If the cable management arm (CMA) is installed, disconnect both CMA left-side connectors and move the CMA out of the way.

    Refer to Remove the Cable Management Arm in Oracle Servers X8-2 and X8-2L Installation Guide.


    Caution  -  When disconnecting the CMA left-side connectors, use your arm to support the CMA so that it does not hang down under its own weight and stress the right-side connectors; otherwise, the CMA might be damaged. You must continue to support the CMA until you have reconnected both of the left-side connectors.

  5. Disconnect the power cord from the failed power supply.
  6. Grasp the power supply handle and push the power supply latch to the left [1].

  7. Pull the power supply out of the chassis [2].


    Caution  -  Whenever you remove a power supply, you should replace it with another power supply; otherwise, the server might overheat due to improper airflow.

  8. Continue to Install a Power Supply.
