Cooling fans

Depending on your system configuration, your system can support up to four cooling fans.

NOTE: Hot swappable removal or installation of the fans is not supported.

NOTE: Each fan is listed in the management software of the system, referenced by the respective fan number. If there is a problem with a particular fan, you can easily identify and replace the proper fan by noting down the fan numbers provided on the cooling fans.

The following table shows the number of fans required for different system configurations:
