5900 JC772A "airflow direction is not preferred"

HI, I'm seeing the below errors on a IRF stack of 5900AF switches

 

Any ideas ?

 

The switch is rack ports front power supply rear.

 

The DC advise that the power supplys suck are in (wrong direction) but the fans blow out the back

Re: 5900 JC772A "airflow direction is not preferred"

Hi

 

  I  see a weird issue with Slot2 fans.  I set to preferred direction 'Power-to-Port' for slot2 but I see that change happened only to FAN2 but not to FAN1 ?

Any ideas please ?

As you can see you have configured Port-to-Power as preferred direciton while the device you have in Slot2 FAN 1 is a Power-to-Port one.

 

So get the proper PSU (or if this is in a fanbox) and you should resolve that warning.
