Power line testing on DCX

Greetings

We're about to test redundancy on power lines in my DataCenter.

I was wondering if there is a best practice for testing this on DCX switches, like what are the most usefull command to test power failover on switches and whatnot

Or any suggestions on what to expect?

Thanks in advance

Re: Power line testing on DCX

Depending a bit on what blades you have installed you need all powersupplies installed and evenly connected on different grid.

Then use the psshow and slotshow -p command to verify if the number of watts suffice. Check the hardware manual on the application blades like FR4-18i,FCoE10-24,BES etc to verify the requirements.
