FastIron FCX

Can someone tell me what this means? I have a stack of four FCX switches and all switches have two power supplies. On both of the stack members (not the active or standby) the DC OK light is orange. When I do a "show chassis" it says these power supplies are fine.

Thank you

Re: FastIron FCX

I found the answer to my above post. Thought I would post it here in case anyone else is interested. This is from the FCX Installation Guide:

NOTE

When two 620W power supplies are installed in an HPOE system that has no load or light load on

the POE function, one of two power supplies may have its "DC OK" LED light red. There is no fault in

the power supply or the system and the switch is functioning normally. The LED will turn to green

automatically once the load is increased over the minimum load requirement. In configurations with

a single power supply installed the "DC OK" LED will light green in a no-load or light-load condition.
