Note: Aruba Chassis has three power slots and each power slot can have maximum of 400 watts of power supply unit. 400 * 3 = 1200 watts.
If we want to use 4 M3mk1 or M3mk1-128 which required 130 watts of power then for redundancy purpose one should have at least below:
1.400+400+200 = 1000 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
2.400+400+400 = 1200 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
CAUTION: If customer has any of below PSU then if any one fail all the M3 will go down and keep on rebooting because they are not getting enough power.
1.400+400 = 800 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
2.400+200 = 600 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
