FAS25xx System

For all operating environments

Hot-swapping a power supply
Hot-swapping a power supply involves turning off, disconnecting, and removing the old power supply and installing,
connecting, and turning on the replacement power supply.
Before you begin

All other components in the system must be functioning properly; if not, you must contact technical support.
About this task

The power supplies are redundant and hot-swappable.
This procedure is written for replacing one power supply at a time.
Note: You must replace a power supply within two minutes of removal to prevent system shutdown due to disruption of
airflow. If there is a delay in replacing the power supply in a single controller system, the system powers down and
requires a power cycle or a power ON from the SP (Service Processor). If there is a delay in replacing the power supply in
an HA pair, the partner performs a takeover that requires a power ON from the SP on the system to initiate a giveback.

The number of power supplies in the system depends on the FAS2500 model:

FAS2520 systems have two power supplies.
FAS2552 systems have two power supplies.
FAS2554 systems have four power supplies.

Note: Power supplies are auto-ranging.

Removing a power supply
To remove a power supply, you must perform a specific sequence of steps.

1. Identify the power supply you want to replace, based on console error messages or through the LEDs on the power supplies.
See the Hardware Platform Monitoring Guide for a description of LED behaviors.
2. If you are not already grounded, properly ground yourself.
3. Turn off the failed power supply and disconnect the power cables:
a. Turn off the power switch on the failed power supply.
b. Open the power cord retainer and unplug the power cord from the power supply.
c. Unplug the power cord from the power source.
4. Use the cam handle to slide the power supply out of the system.
