Dco - IT Advisor

Hi all

 

a PDPM138H-5U is a Rack Power Distrubution. This device is without a breaker panel and a Pdpu is unable to connect to him.

So is there any way to change this in the next genoma release?

 

i have posted the same question many years ago but.....

 

As workaround i have created a "fake" PDPM closer the rack

 

thanks

Gianluca,

Although I don't fully understand the limitation behind it, unfortunately this isn't as simple as updating the genome. This would require a major update that allows rack mount devices to have UPS and PDU power properties.  

 

@Jef  or @gsterling are there any details available on this feature request, specifically rack mount UPS and PDU power path, and if there is a target release date/or version?

Hi Gianluca,

From the power configuration point of view, the functionality of PDPM138H-5U as rack mounted PDU is not supported.
In DCO/ITA, power path may start from UPS -> PDU -> rack-pdu and/or from PDU -> rack-pdu

 

They (UPS, PDU) are all floor mounted equipment, and rack/rack-pdus,are being considered as consumer.

So, in general functionality of the rack mounted PDU or UPS is unsupported.

 

It seems for the time being, a possible work-around as you may have done it already, to model it as floor standing PDU. 

 

Kind regards,

Re: Dco - IT Advisor

Can you provide a few names? It helps if we can identify specific names/quantities rather than stating in the feedback request "alot of customers" are requesting.

 

In many cases when the feature is being considered for a release the prod management team will contact some customers to get specific details regarding how the feature would be used in their cases.

 

Regards
