Powering Blade Servers

Is it necessary to use both A and B mini-bus bars with one BL40P server and 1 BL20P enclosed? Currently, I have one power enclosure installed. I want to configure them, but for now I only have one power source. I can find nothing that refers to this, but since it continually refers to "redundant functionality" I'm hoping I can do it this way. When they are racked there will be redundant power available. Thanks, L

Re: Powering Blade Servers

Either bus will run an enclosure without the support of the other. If you have a power enclosure with 6 supplies, either bus can run 3 full enclosures. They are fully rendundant. For now, you should be fine running just the two server on one bus.
