Installing the power supplies

Installing the power supplies when replacing a chassis involves installing the power supplies into the replacement chassis, and connecting to the power source.

Steps

  1. If you are not already grounded, properly ground yourself.
  2. Using both hands, support and align the edges of the power supply with the opening in the system chassis, and then gently push the power supply into the chassis until it locks into place.
    The power supplies are keyed and can only be installed one way.
    Attention: Do not use excessive force when sliding the power supply into the system; you can damage the connector.
  3. Reconnect the power cord and secure it to the power supply using the power cord locking mechanism.
    Attention: Only connect the power cord to the power supply; do not connect the power cord to a power source at this time.
  4. Repeat the preceding steps for any remaining power supplies.
