Power saving mode for blade power supply

I have read somewhere in the blade documentation (p-class 1U PSU) that I have to set a DIP switch before the blade power supplys will save power by powering down unused power supplys. But I can't find the explaination again.

Can anybody tell me how to do it or where I can find more information?

Re: Power saving mode for blade power supply

Hi,

Configuring the Dynamic Power Saver
NOTE: The Dynamic Power Saver is a feature of the HP BladeSystem
p-Class 1U Power Supply Enclosure.
NOTE: The Dynamic Power Saver configures the available power
supplies to operate at maximum efficiency.
When the Dynamic Power Saver feature is enabled, the total enclosure power
consumption is monitored in real time. Power supplies are placed in a standby
condition when the power demand from the server enclosure is low. When power
demand increases, the standby power supplies instantaneously deliver the
required power. This enables the enclosure to operate at optimum efficiency.

How to configure:
To configure the Dynamic Power Saver, remove the power enclosure
management module.

Can it be done without powering down the enclosure?

Yes you can make it on the fly
Management module is Hot Plug component

What servers you have and how many power supplies in 1U enclosure, source wall or UPS.
Sometimes you need to leave it OFF to eliminate errors like missing redundancy.
