Currently, we are planning to install F5 VIPRION 4480N along with one Blade 4300 type.
Because of limited number of source power, we are planning to use 2 power supplies per-chassis. Power supply #1 and #4.
Today, we powered-up this VIPRION on our lab. And found out that the power supply alarm and led keep blinking though we had cleared it several time before.
The system displayed below log continously:
Jun 9 03:40:02 slot1/localhost emerg system_check: 010d0006:0: Chassis power supply 2 has experienced an issue. Status is as follows: STATUS=bad.
Jun 9 03:40:02 slot1/localhost emerg system_check: 010d0006:0: Chassis power supply 3 has experienced an issue. Status is as follows: STATUS=bad
1. Is it okay to use only 2 power supplies only out of total 4?
2. Is there any way to disable this alarm?
Thank you for any input
Just leaving this comment so this post will stop showing up as unanswered.
It appears you resolved your problem by flipping a DB key. This means you won't get notification if there is a real power supply failure.
