To remove a hot-swap power supply, do the following:

Attention: This type of power supply is hot-swap only when two power supplies are installed for redundancy. If only one power supply is installed, you must turn off the server first before removing the power supply.
  1. If the server is in a rack, pull back the cable management arm to gain access to the rear of the server and the power supply.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the hot-swap power supply.
  3. Press the release tab toward the handle and carefully pull the handle at the same time to slide the hot-swap power supply out of the chassis.
