Replacing PCI Power module in rp7420 srver

Dear All,

In rp7410 official document, I have found Replacing PCI power module is hot-swappable.But in rp7420 i have found PCI power module is not hot-swapable.But in another HP document i have found PCI power module is hot-swapable.

So please confirm me is PCI power module in rp7420 hot-swappable or not?

hi,

in the service guide it lists it as needing to power down the system. Obviously if it has failed nothing will be using that side of the pci card cage anyway? depends upon your configuration maybe.

scroll down to the removal/repalcement procedure of pci power module

It is hot pluggable(easy to change) rather than hot swappable in my opinion
