Pinned topic Can I take out redundant power supply from 1 unit and put into another unit of same model?

‏2014-04-03T02:53:03Z |

I was told from IBM Support that in order for my redundant power supply to work, the FRU no must match.

Is that true?

 

Let's say I already have an existing server, but I wish to install another Redundant power supply.

My Distributor is unable to get the Redundant power supply with the FRU no that I provided .

He says that as long as it is same model, putting the redundant power supply should work.

 

Please advise

    If the power unit is of the same M/T & the same FRU / with the same power specification it can be done.

      What I wish to ask if power unit is same M/T but different FRU no, will it give amber light or not?

      Simple question.

       

      If so, is there any other way to workaround by making it not giving amber light?

        It doesn't matter whether its different fru, but the fru should hav the interop with the M/T.
