Yes, it say that serve can see PS1 connected but not delivering power.
If you have spare/replacement one, just swap it out.
You don't need to shoot down server
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
Yes you can.
You have redundant power supply in PE R710
Just disconnect power cable from this power supply and pull it out.
Replace by new one and connect power cord.

Just make DARNED sure that you pull the right cord!  I've seen this done, and servers tend to get angry when you do this to them.

i unplugged the right cord and server reset :( . I plugged the cord back and the server was back online. I ordered a new PS for tomorrow. I will safely install this PS tomorrow. Server is operating for now.
