i have a customer with a large amount of equipment loaded into DCO. The customer loaded equipment. However, none of the serve power connections were made. All of the equipment with only a few exceptions is 2N. Is the any way to automate the cable connection process for equipment that already exist within a rack?

Doable but will require some coding. I'd be looking to use the REST API http://sxwhelpcenter.ecostruxureit.com/DCOAPIdoc/#!/powerpath/addPowerCable
Happy to help if you need it.

Hi Brian, how did you go with this task? How many rooms do you have? How many assets in each room? I assume that any asset already connected or has odd number of power inlets or is set to something other than 2N is to be ignored? Any rack that does not have exactly 2 rPDUs to be ignored?
