Does StruxureWare Data Center Expert support APC rack mount PDUs using Network Port Sharing?

Issue:

StruxureWare Data Center Expert does not support APC rPDUs using network port sharing.

Product Line:

InfraStruxure Central
StruxureWare Data Center Expert
AP8xxx APC rack mount PDU2

Environment:

StruxureWare Data Center Expert 7.x and earlier
AP8xxx APC rack mount rPDU2 using network port sharing

Cause:

When using network port sharing, the SNMP output of the rack mount PDU is not seen by StruxureWare Data Center Expert in a format that can properly associate the different outlets with their respective PDUs.

Resolution:

The current resolution is to not use the network port sharing and add each rPDU individually by it's own IP. A future revision of StruxureWare with the ability to properly associate the outlets with their respective PDUs when using the network port sharing feature is being looked at but there are no firm dates or versions at this time.
