In one cabinet in our facility we have two in-rack ATS power supplies being fed from the same (2) Zero-U power strips. We are able to connect one of the ATS supplies to the two power strips in the cabinet, however when we try to map the power dependency to the second ATS, we get a 'Rack PDU is already supplying rack ATS' error message; and the two power strips currently being utilized are not allowed to be selected. What are we missing, as i am sure the tool set shouldn't limit the end user to one in rack power supply per cabinet?

What DCO version are you using? Perhaps will help noting the 8.2 info at the bottom

We have the same problem in 8.2.13.

Thanks Ed! We are using 8.2.2. It looks like the link you included will work for us, but i really wish there was a way to accurately reflect what was going on within the rack, since these ATS's "technically" are powered off a zero U PSU. Feature request??

Ok so looking at this proposed workaround some more this will not work for us as previously mentioned. I misread the workaround and thought the power path WOULD BE accurate still and this seems not to be the case. Not having an accurate power path is a non-negotiable for us.
Any other ideas??
