Re: Certainly was user error
Certainly your certainty cannot be so certain. I too have "first hand experience using gen1 blades", and I wonder if you're talking about the PDUs not the actual PSUs, as they were hot swappable even in the very first Gen 1 chassis.... let alone Proliants from many years prior.
Extra cooling on blades/chasis', over top of the Boeing level fans they include? The only user error there would be poorly designed server room/air-conditioning, I would have thought..
