AC Power Switch (2x) Power Supply #2 Spring Latch (2x) Fan Tray Assembly (containing fans #3 and 4) HP Surestore FC 1Gb/2Gb Switch 16B Installation and Reference Recommended Action No action required. Verify that the switch is on and boot has had time to complete.
If the switch prompt does not display when POST completes, POST was not successfully completed and the switch should be returned to your HP account representative for repair. Any errors detected during POST are written to the system log, accessible through the errShow command.
SFP modules and fiber optic cables in use. The tests are implemented by command, either through a telnet session or through a terminal set up for a serial connection to the switch. Some tests require the ports to be connected by external cables, to allow diagnostics to verify the serializer/deserializer interface, as well as the attached SFP and cable.
Field-Replaceable Units (FRUs) Warning The power supplies, fan trays, and the entire switch can all be replaced in the field, without the use of special tools. The switch can continue operating during the replacement of a fan tray or power supply, if they are replaced one at a time.

One LED on each power supply to indicate the status of that power supply. • One LED on the left of the SFP media side to indicate whether the switch has power. • One LED in the center of the power supply side to indicate the overall switch status.
Weight (with both power supplies installed) Facility Requirements To ensure correct operation of the switch, the facility where the switch is in use must meet the following requirements: • Adequate supply circuit, line fusing, and wire size, as specified by the electrical rating on the switch nameplate.
The parallel data is expected to be “8B/10B” encoded data or equivalent. Serial Port Specifications The serial port has an RS-232 connector, and is located in the SFP media side of the switch. Note: For dust and ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, a cover is provided for the serial port and should be kept on the port whenever the serial port is not in use.
POST completes in 60 seconds. A slightly longer version of the memory portion of the test is performed after cold boots. A cold boot occurs after a complete power cycle, when the switch is turned off then on. A warm boot is any other type of boot, such as an operating system reboot or switch panic.
