Hot-swap power supply installation

  1. Slide the hot-swap power supply into the bay until the release latch clicks into place.
    Important: During normal operation, each power-supply bay must contain either a power supply or power-supply filler panel for proper cooling.
  2. Connect one end of the power cord to the AC connector on the back of the new power supply. Then, connect the other end of the power cord to a properly grounded electrical outlet.

After you finish

Make sure that the AC power LED on the power supply is lit, indicating that the power supply is operating correctly. If the compute node is turned on, make sure that the DC power LED on the power supply is lit as well.
