Why would you replace a good fan just because you have another (which seems to be DOA)?
Return the "new" fan or throw it away.
Actually, the background why we change the good fan because at the first time, the system report "Failed" on the "prtdiag" for Fan Tray status. But, we tried to unplug and plug the fan again, and it worked. Because this machine is a production machine, we was afraid and my boss decide to buy a new one and replace it.
I have tried to install another fan, but the problem still occur. "prtdiag" on the system still report "Failed" status on Fan 2 and Fan 3. But physically all fans (fan 1, fan 2, fan 3 are swing / rotating).
Wrobbins2, would you mind giving me your advise, please? for the real Part Number Fan Tray Assembly Sun Fire v240.
Actually I have taken any picture between the old fan and the new fan. How can sent the picture to this forum especially for you, so I can get your suggestion according to this fan , please??
Thank you for your help. I am really...really appreciate it

"Cooling Fans in the V240 Server
The cooling fans have changed in the Sun Fire V240 server. The fans are now a single
unit. The older cooling fans cannot be replaced individually. For more information,
refer to the Sun Fire V240 Fan Removal and Replacement Guide (819-1147)."
though I can't seem to find that document in SunSolve or Google search, sorry.
