AX4-5

This question has been answered by DELL-Sam L

Hi

I have 2U unit (DPE) with 2 controllers.

When i try to power up the unit, the warning amber light is on and the unit is not powering on.

Since i don't have a SPS unit, Doe's the 1U SPS (Spare Power Supply) is mandatory to work with the AX4?

  • Hello chenchen,

    You do need the SPS in order to power up your AX4-5. Also since you have 2 controllers you need to have both power supplies in the system.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
