Rather than try to explain it here, this link will take you too a great source of the technology.

Redundant Power Supplies
One advanced feature available on high-end machines (especially servers) but also available to the general public for those willing to pay for it, is a redundant power supply. In essence, this is a power supply that actually includes two (or more) units within it, each of which is capable of powering the entire system by itself. If for some reason there is a failure in one of the units, the other one will seamlessly take over to prevent the loss of power to the PC. You can usually even replace the damaged unit without taking the machine down. This is called hot swapping, and is an essential productivity backup for use in servers and other machines used by a number of people.

Can I connect Ethernet to the internet without router

This is possible a few different ways:

-Connect the switch directly to the modem and each computer, then pay your ISP for extra IP addresses for each computer, if they will allow it. Make sure that you secure each computer with proper firewall/security software as it will be directly exposed to the internet. This method typically will not work with ADSL or any ISP that uses a PPPoE connection.
-Install two ethernet cards in one of the computers. Connect the switch to one ethernet card and the modem to the other, then enable internet connection sharing.
-Acquire an older computer with two ethernet cards in it and install free linux based router software such as Smoothwall to create your own homebrew router that has all of the features of the pricy linksys/netgear/etc. routers and then some.

How do i reset the power supply on my poweredge 2600?

Resetting the power supplies isn't necessary. Once one of the ptwo power supplies fails, the second power supply automatically takes over. Also, there isn't a need to power down the system to change the supplies as long as you change them one at a time.

Dell power edge 4600 wiht 4 power supply redundant problem

thanks for your no answer !!!

Solucion: apagar servidor, cambiar la posicion de la fuente de alimentacion que marca el error ( el visor LCD indica la posicion de la fuente de alimentacion con error ) y ver si continua el problema.
Sino continua, ok
Si continua y sigue marcando la misma posicion, dos opciones, o es la tarjeta de administracion de energia ( esperemos que no ) o es un fallo del LOG de Hardware, con lo cual, bajar la herramienta DSET de Dell y borrar el LOG ( tercera opcion ) y voila, el equipo como nuevo.

No me molesto en traducirlo porque nadie se ha molestado en ayudarme, lo pongo por si le sirve a alguien.

Un saludo y menos expertos y mas trabajo !
