Figure 9. Airflow direction of HP ProCurve Switch 8206zl
The fan tray is hot-swappable in the Switch 8206zl; it can be removed and replaced without removing power
from the switch . However, the new fan tray should be installed immediately after removing the old fan tray to
avoid overheating and the automatic switch shutdown within three minutes .
In the event of an individual fan failure, an SNMP trap and event log entry is generated . A system can typically
operate for quite a long time with a single fan failure (out of the six), while the other fans step up in speed to
compensate for the loss of airflow .
The rear panel of the fan tray replicates the Power/Fault/Locator LEDs found on the front of the 8206zl switch .
This is useful when attempting to locate an 8206zl switch while walking behind a row of equipment cabinets .
