Is a CPU fan on an rp8420 hot swap-able?

Hello-
I am seeing message in the console logs of my rp8420 that indicate that a cpu fan has failed. Is this hot swap-able or will I have to take the system down to replace it?

Thanks in advance
Pam

Hi Pam,

you need a downtime for the partition (minimum), because the cell has to be removed from the server in order to access the fan.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Pam,

Could you post the log that you read? It would also be helpful if you could post the output from the MP. Choose cm, and then ps, and t for cabinet.

thanx!!
