    To ensure that it is fully operational, the switch processes a series of tests during power-up or a restart (Power-On Self-Test, or POST). These tests may take up to two minutes to complete. The Lenovo Flex System Chassis Management Module (CMM) reads the test results and displays them for you. During normal operation, these tests are completed without error, and the green switch Power LED is lit.
