DL580 Gen9 - Workload Accelerator FIO_EXTERNAL_POWER_OVERRIDE won't take effect

Hi dear fellas,

I'm trying to override the PCIe power limit on my DL580 Gen9 with:

fio-config -p FIO_EXTERNAL_POWER_OVERRIDE 1526G0438:50000

But it doesn't take it.

It's also kinda weird, that the only PCIe slot witch took the POWER_OVERRIDE is the one with fct6 (see result from fio-status)

And via ioSphere i get this error:

Thank you all for every help and idea I get!

Re: DL580 Gen9 - Workload Accelerator FIO_EXTERNAL_POWER_OVERRIDE won't take effect

I am pretty shure you have found the solution meanwhile, but here it is:
If you have mutliple adapters , always put in the parameters for all cards separated with a comma alltogether in one single command.  This also applies on changes.  Try this: 

fio-config -p FIO_EXTERNAL_POWER_OVERRIDE 1526G0438:50000,1526G0442:50000,1529G0007:50000,.  ..,1529G0058:50000
