RE: Power Supply Redundancy Settings for PowerEdge 1950 & 2950 Gen II
I concur with you that this switching ability is optimal, but had a bad experience from the both active ps configuration.
Despite surge protections, as my country has issues with power stability, we had a situation were both ps units gave in within a span of a week without allowing ample time for us to receive and replace the initial burnt out power supply.
To compensate for such, I was thinking to either have the setup corrected in passive/active configuration or else, bite the bone and pull the plug on one unit to serve as a backup ps of this old machine. The later is not my ideal scenario though.
