ipmitool always reports "Fan Redundancy" and "PS Redundancy" value as 0x00 even when connected working

We have a Dell R630, running CentOS 7.2.1511 with  version  1.8.15 of ipmitool.  The box has 2 power supplies and 6 fans.  Regardless of the number of fans and power supplies  that are  plugged in at the moment, if I run :

ipmitool sdr

the values for "Fan Redundancy" & "PS Redundancy" are always reported as  0x00 (see output below) .   Shouldn't this be 0x01 if all of the devices are plugged in, but 0x00 if one or more is missing?  Is there something else that would affect the value other than  connectedness?

RE: ipmitool always reports "Fan Redundancy" and "PS Redundancy" value as 0x00 even when connected working

Hi,

I would make sure that the idrac and bios are up to date. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=4950Y&fileId=3581736105&os...

RE: ipmitool always reports "Fan Redundancy" and "PS Redundancy" value as 0x00 even when connected working

I updated to the latest iDRAC / BIOS.

One *nice* effect of that was that it seems that "ipmitool sdr" completes a *lot* faster (some of the values at the end of the list were taking a *long* time to generate with the old BIOS).

# ipmitool -V
ipmitool version 1.8.15
# ipmitool sdr | egrep -i 'Fan Redundancy|PS Redundancy'
Fan Redundancy | 0x00 | ok
PS Redundancy | 0x00 | ok

It's my understanding that it should be 0x01 if things are happy. Say... is there any kind of document tat defines what all these values should be?
