TS7700 - Customer request 3rd or 4th level power redundancy within the frame - critical outage occurred because building power maintenance left the TS7700 running on one PDU and that one failed. Without addtional redundancy, the box came down.

Critical outage occurred.  Building power maintenance being performed turning off one power leg leaving the TS7700 running on one PDU and that one failed.  The box ultimately came down, having a 3rd of 4th PDU would've allowed this frame to stay powered up.
