Connect mounted floor asset in a power connection under the raised flo

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Pedro Moraes on 2019-12-23


I'm trying to power up a IBM 3584 in a under the raised floor 8 positions power strip, but I'm not able to do so. I have 5 IBM 3584 frames powered by the same 8 positions power strip.

How can I do it?

PS: IBM 3584 does not accept a power strip on it like a rack does.

Hello Pedro.

You are correct DCO does not support the ability to create an under-floor power strip. 

There are two methods I could recommend.

#1. Create an additional breaker panel on the PDU or RPP from which the underfloor power strip is fed.

I assume the 3584 devices are fed by three phase power? So in the parent PDU you could create a breaker panel with the name of the power strip. Assign at least 24 poles to the breaker panel to account for 8 three phase circuits. Then in the power dependency view of the 3584 device, you should be able to connect to the poles in the power strip breaker panel.

 

#2. Create a separate PDU/RPP which represents the power strip. Like option #1 you'd want to create a breaker panel in this PDU with enough positions to connect all of the devices. This PDU/RPP would be fed from the PDU which feeds the power strip, then you can connect each of the 3584 devices to the poles in the temp PDU.

 

Method #2 might work better for you if your power strip is monitored via DCE or other tool as you'd be able to associate the device to the asset.

Thank you, Greg!

For us the best option is #2, because we have power strip is monitored via DCE.
