Redundant hot-plug power supply option

CAUTION: All power supplies installed in the server must have the same output power capacity. Verify that all power supplies have the same part number and label color. The system becomes unstable and may shut down when it detects mismatched power supplies.
CAUTION: To prevent improper cooling and thermal damage, do not operate the server unless all bays are populated with either a component or a blank.

To install the component:

  1. Access the product rear panel.
  2. Remove the blank.
    WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the power supply or power supply blank to cool before touching it.
