HP Blade System C7000 - Issues

We have two C7000 Blade Enclousres, ENC1 Having HP BL 460 G7 (08) Bays+ G1(02) Bays

ENC 2 Having HP BL 460 G1 (06) Bays + G7 (06).


I have faced two issues in recent days, so i need some help regrading these:


1- I have to move one Enclousre to other Rack, so i shutdown all the Bays and Started un-plugging Power Cable one by one, When i unplugged 3 Cables i have seen that other 2 Power Supplies(Still Plugged) burned.

Then i replaced the Damaged Power Supplies with new one and from 2 weeks everything is fine.

But my Question is why this happend? is there any problem in Power Mode etc?



















2- When I shutdown any Bay and then power on, I heard huge Fan sound (for about 3 Minutes) and then it become normal. and Fan Speed of Shared Fan reaches about 54%.

Is this Normal, Here is Current Status of Fan Speeds.

If you have a thermal event please contact HP straight away.
There might be more damage than you can see at first and they will replace all the needed hardware.
Did my post help? Thank me with kudo's! :)

Your fan speeds look normal.  It is common for the fans to speed up during a hardware status change.  This is done by the OA  to ensure proper cooling in the event that you are removing any module leaving an open slot in the enclosure.

Thanks bob


What about my first part of the Question? The Power Configurations are correct?
