Important Avaya IP Office Tip

I’m back from a month away from the office, so thought I’d start this up again.

VERY important tip for those of you who have Avaya IP Office modules.

The power adapters must be attached in a very specific order, as follows:

First, with the power adapter disconnected from the power cord, plug the power adapter into the back of the module.

THEN, plug the power cord into the power adapter.

THEN, plug the power cord into your 120V power receptacle.

It is important because doing this in the wrong order can possibly blow the power connection in the module which Avaya does not warranty. In case you’re wondering, Avaya technicians can tell that you didn’t power it up properly, thanks to a little trip ciruit that’s inside the machine.

Consider yourself warned.
