Providing power to the device

Perform the following steps to provide power to the device.

  1. Remove the power cord and the power cord retainer clip from the shipping carton container.
  2. Install the power cord retainer clip to the power supply inlet on the device.
  3. Connect the power cord to the power supply inlet on the device. Ensure that the power cords have a minimum service loop of 6 inches available and are routed properly to avoid stress.
  4. Insert the power cord plug to power sources on separate circuits if there is more than one power cord for a single device in order to protect against power failure.
  5. If applicable, power on the power sources by flipping the switches to the on position. The SYST LED displays amber until power-on self-test (POST) is complete and then starts blinking green until the device is completely up. The device usually requires several minutes to boot and complete POST.
    Power is supplied to the device as soon as the first power supply is connected and turned on. If the power indicator does not turn on when the power cord is plugged in, you may have a problem with the power outlet, power cord, or internal power supply.
  6. After POST is complete, verify that the switch power and switch status LEDs are green.
    Power Supply LED should always display solid green to ensure a working power supply. If the LED is amber, it indicates a faulty PSU.
    For more information about how to interpret POST, BOOT, and diagnostics tests, refer to Monitoring the Device.
