Hi @OtakarKlier, Thanks for a suggestion. However, it's not that I want to install or power uneven number of power supplies. It's just that for example PA-7050 has 4 of them, which makes that half of them will be powered from A circuit, the other from B. Now, if one circuit fails (for example PDU goes down), I will only have 2 PS getting power. Hardware guide stated though that if I have 5 or 6 NPCs installed, I need at least 3 PS to be functional. So my question was what happens in that scenario with the whole chassis - is the whole chassis going down, or it intelligently shuts down certain slots to save at least some functionality.

The PA-7000 Hardware Guide specifies they minimum number of active PS to provide enough power for a chassis depending on the type of power and number of NPCs installed. For example, if the PA-7050 chassis is powered via 120V AC and has 6 NPCs installed it requires at least 3 PS functioning to provide full functionality. So, if the chassis is powered through two ciruits (2 PDUs), and one of them fails, it will be left with only 2 power supplies powered. My question is what happens with the chassis if the minimum number of active PS is not met? Does it shut down completely, or shuts down only certain slots/NPCs. If it is partial, what is the rule on which slots become inactive/disabled? I was trying to find an information about it in the documentation, but my search was unsuccessful.
