Power Supplies in Bladesystem enclosure

Sherwin needed some Power Supply clarification:




Do we have any issues in mixing old and new power supplies in an enclosure?




Monty made it "perfectly clear."




Mixing different power supply part numbers in BladeSystem enclosures is not supported.  Different power supply models have different output designs and cannot evenly share the enclosure load – causing a load imbalance across the different supplies - and this will affect the Onboard Administrator's enclosure power readings and power management.


First ensure that all the power supplies in the enclosure are the same model, then debug the issues with the server blades.




Thanks Monty!! And don't mix power supplies between old and new.
