Maintenance and Field Replacement
E.1 Considerations
All fans and power supplies are hot swappable.
The switch can be running while a power supply is being installed or removed, but the power supply being replaced must not be connected to a power source.
All slots must be filled or covered with a blank for operation (even though power supply or fans may not be functional).
Before you begin, refer to the Arista Networks document Safety Information and Translated Safety Warnings available at: https://www.arista.com/en/support/product-documentation.
Note Descriptions for the removal and replacement of power supplies and fans are for a representative power supply or fan. Locations of status indicator LEDs may differ. Refer to the front and rear panel illustrations of your device to locate the appropriate LED.

Step 1 Remove the replacement power supply from its packaging.
Step 2 Slide the new power supply into the empty slot.
Step 3 Slide the new power supply into the switch until the power supply is fully seated and the release lever snaps into place (Figure E-1).
Step 4 Connect the power cord to the power supply.
Step 5 Verify the LED(s) on the power supply.
Note The Power Supply status LED should be a steady green for normal operation.
Step 6 Verify the new power supply operation by issuing the show environment power command.
switch#show environment power
The output of the command will list the power supplies in operation and should include the one you replaced.
E.3 Fan Modules
Note Hot swap fans within 30 seconds to prevent the switch from overheating. Ensure that the module you are replacing matches those already installed in the switch.
