Power Issues Blades BL20p G2/G3

I have 4 racks of 8 BL20p's. I removed one and when I put it back it immediately shows a red health light. I think I have a power issue but Insight says I'm well under consumption. Anybody seen this before? I am getting strange power email alerts from Insight saying Rack power subsystem is not redundant. All my power supplies show up and running though everything indicates a power problem.

Also on the power bus bars at the back of the Blades. There are like trip/fuse switches. Should they be up or down?

Explain your power subsystem configuration (1/2 PU shelfs, interconnect within power and blade shelfs). Never "play" with hot removing blade servers, it's not good idea to test your hardware in that way.

All breakers should be ON and for bus bar ON for those that connected to enclosure A1 and B1 â ¦.
As previously stated, donâ t pull and insert back for test purpose
If it goes red press and hold power for 5-7 seconds, see if it turns Green

Make sure Firmware for Power and system ROM up to date
