Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server
You don't "reset" power supplies. They run until they fail. At that point, you replace the power supply with one that works.
If you meant "reseat" then you would first determine what type of PSU you have. If it's a redundant power supply, you unplug the power supply, activate the latch on the handle of the PSU module and pull...then push it back in and plug it back in. (Flip any switches to the "On" position.)
Replace power supplies that do not come back on.

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.

PowerEdge 2600 utilizes a Power Distribution Module (PDM) for power redundancy. The two (Max) Power Supply Units plug into the Power Distribution Module in the front and two power cords at the back from power outlets..
If a power supply lites RED, it indicates the respective power supply unit is faulty (normally) and/or the slot/PDM is faulty (very rear). Given that both power supplies indicated fault the issue may as well be with the PDM.
Check here for help to re-seat the PDM cables. If issue persists consider replacing the PDM.
Let me know if further help is needed

SOURCE: Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600
PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..
You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..
I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]
