Replacing a failed power supply unit in a H-series chassis

Each chassis includes two power supply units for power redundancy. If a power supply unit fails, you must replace it as soon as possible to ensure that the chassis has a redundant power source.

Before you begin

About this task

The replacement procedure applies to the following hardware models:
Note: In the case of H610C, H615C, and H610S, the terms "node" and "chassis" are used interchangeably because node and chassis are not separate components, unlike in the case of the 2U, four-node chassis.
Alarms in the VMware vSphere Web Client provide information about the failed power supply unit, referring to it as PS1 or PS2. In a NetApp HCI 2U, four-node chassis, PS1 refers to the unit on the top row of the chassis and PS2 refers to the unit on the bottom row of the chassis. You can replace the failed power supply unit while your chassis is powered on and working, as long as the redundant power supply unit is functioning.

The following illustration shows the back of an empty NetApp HCI 2U, four-node chassis with the two power supply units:

In this illustration, the two power supply units and the LED on the power supply unit are highlighted.
LED

If the LED is green, it means that the power supply unit is operating.

If the LED is amber, it means that the power supply unit is not operating.
