As an update to my earlier post, we did need to replace our power supplies in the two enclosures that we had purchased. We are in the process of replacing them over the next two days. Our replacement units arrived in our warehouse yesterday. I will upate with the process as we complete it.
I found this alert from Aaron Delp’s blog about certain c7000 Bladesystems from HP which need power supplies replaced. There is an “extremely rare” potential that if one of the power supplies fails, it could lead to a complete shutdown on the entire enclosure. I’m out of the office today, but I believe our bladesystems will fall into the affected category and will need the replacements. I’ll be checking that on Monday.
