    • ‚ÄčAP8966 model only

Environment

Cause

This issue is caused by a firmware bug within the Rack PDU Network Management Card (NMC) Firmware.


Resolution

It is recommended that the user refer to the accurate silkscreen markings directly on the chassis of the Rack PDU itself in order to understand the correct bank to phase relationships in order to correctly balance loads across phases. Alternatively, refer to the "Correct" screenshot above for accurate phase to bank relationship information. No measurements provided are incorrect, just the phase to bank information shown within the NMC interfaces.
 

This issue will be fixed in rpdu2g application v6.4.4 (and higher), available in September, 2016.
