DDN SS6000 power supplies

Robert Leong -

Type 1 and 2 should not co-exist in same JBOD, use both of the same type. 

Type 2 is a newer version. 

In a mixed type 1 and 2 setup, type 1 have a slow failover ramp up if type 2 fails, causing power interruption to the entire JBOD. 

In a both type 1 setup, you can replace a failed type 1 with type 2, ensure type 2 is up and operational, then remove the other type 1, replace it with type 2.

Additional note on "ses show" and "ses show=121?":
'showall' gathers controller side info it does not retrieve all the enclosure info, must use "ses showall" AND "ses show=121?" to get ALL enclosure info.  Only one controller is used for ses, typically it is the frist controller in a dual configuration.  Only need to retrieve from one controller.

ses showall 
ses show=121a 
ses show=121b 
ses show=121c 
ses show=121d 
ses show=121e 
ses show=121f
