Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server ?

No power to dell poweredge 1600sc. Redundant power supplies have no lights.


Answers :

Either the power supplies have both failed, which is unlikely, or they are not connected to a hot outlet. Frequently servers are connected to uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) instead of being connected directly to a wall outlet. Make sure the UPS is on and functioning.
