Install new power supply and complete power supply replacement

You install a new power supply to replace the failed one. Install the power supply by gently sliding it into the opening of the new controller. Then complete the power supply replacement by confirming that the new power supply is working correctly.

Before you begin


  1. 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 using the cam handle.

    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.

  2. Confirm that its status is Optimal and check the controller shelf’s Attention LEDs.
    If the status is not Optimal or if any of the Attention LEDs are on, confirm that all cables are correctly seated and the controller canister is installed correctly. If necessary, remove and reinstall the controller canister.
    Note: If you cannot resolve the problem, contact technical support.
  3. Click Support > Upgrade Center to ensure that the latest version of SANtricity OS is installed.
    As needed, install the latest version.


Your power supply replacement is complete. You can resume normal operations.
