After a power supply was replaced in an M4000, the system failed to come up.



Although the replacefru command was not used to replace the power supply, this was corrected and the system still wouldn't come up after a power cycle.

No failures were noted in the showstatus, however, many components were in a deconfigured state, and no components were missing in showhardconf.

We compared the problemmatic showhardconf to that of a known good lab system to verify.
