Status Indicators
A.1 Front Indicators
A.1.1 Switch Indicators
Front panel LEDs are located on the right side of the chassis and display system, fan, and power supply status. The front panel LEDs are labeled either as in Figure A-1 or as in Figure A-2. Check your device for the specific method utilized.

Table A-1 Switch Indicators LED States (Front)
LED Name
LED State
Device Status
System Status LED
Blinking Green1
System is powering up.
Green
Normal operations. Due to power supply and fan redundancy, this LED will remain green if a single fan or power supply is missing or in a failed state.
Blue / Blinking Blue
The locater function is active.
Amber / Yellow / Orange
Two or more fans (any combination of fan modules or PSU fans) are disconnected or malfunctioning or incompatible. The switch will automatically execute a “graceful shutdown” shortly.
Fan Status LED
Green
All fan and power modules are operating normally.
Amber / Yellow / Orange
Single fan module is removed or malfunctioning. It is also amber when a PSU is completely removed or has a stuck fan rotor.
Red
Two or more fans (any combination of fan modules or PSU fans) are disconnected or malfunctioning. The switch will automatically execute a “graceful shutdown” shortly.
PSU [1:2] Status LED
Green
PSU is functioning and fully operational. AC is present, Aux output is ON, and Main output is ON.
Red
PSU has been removed or is not operating properly due to AC cord being unplugged, its fan rotor being stuck, or an internal fault.
1. System could take up to ten minutes to boot up and be ready for operation. Other LEDs could be off.
A.1.2 Port Indicators
Port LEDs, located in the vicinity of their corresponding ports, provide link and operational status. Figure A-3 displays the Port LED location on the DCS-7050QX-32S switch.

Status
Off
Port link is down.
Green
Port link is up.
Yellow / Orange / Amber
Port is software disabled.
Flashing Yellow
Software controlled.
A.2 Rear Status Indicators
Fan and power supply modules are accessed from the rear panel. Each fan and power supply module contains an LED that reports the module status.
Fan module status LEDs are on the fan modules, as displayed in Figure A-4.

LED State
Status
Off
The fan module is not detected. If it is inserted, it may not be seated properly.
Green
The fan is operating normally. This LED state is exclusive to its fan module, and independent of the states of its neighboring fans and power supplies.
Red
The fan has failed.
The AC Power Supply Status LEDs are on the power supply modules, as displayed for a representative PSU, in Figure A-5.
