DL380 G6 Boot on power problem

Hello,

I'm testing boot on power on DL380 G6 server with one power supply connected.
1. If I remove the power supply cord(the server goes down) and plug in it again immediately(after 1sec), the front system health LED becomes RED blinking(even the ASR doesn't power the machine after 5min) and server does not power any more.

2. If I remove the power supply cord(the server goes down) and plug in it again (after 5sec), everything is ok and the server powers in about 20-30 seconds as it should.

I need the server to boot on power if cable is unplugged and re-plugged immediately(after 1sec). How can i fix this issue?

I'd like to confirm this issue for our 2 DL360 G6 as well.

Our servers have dual PSU, and reports errors if the power "blackout" is too short.

As mentioned by Irk this is not an issue if the power is lost for more than 5 seconds.

We need the server to always be running, no matter what the cause was, as long as there is power.
