I have many DC powered devices in my data centers that connect to BDFBs or BDCBBs in the room. DCO does not let me connect devices outside the cabinet. Please advise

In general, in DCO, devices in a rack can only be powered from rack's available rack-pdu(s).
The usual power path in DCO is:
UPS -> PDU -> rack pdu -> "IT device"
and/or PDU -> rack pdu -> "IT device"
A possible workaround I could think of is adding & configuring some rack pdu(s) for those devices.

I understand, but currently rack-mounted devices may only have power connections with rack-pdu(s) inside the rack. I can capture a feature request for you or you might want to post one here: Feature requests
