critical - System()[] - 2018/06/07 19:24:41 - Sending ivePowerSupplyNotify 
[ psDescription='One of the power supplies has failed' ]

[ psDescription='Both the power supplies are back up' ]

A visual check of the power supply does show green lights for both power supplies.
This issue occurs due to the low threshold when checking for power supply failures. The original design was to check every 60 seconds and report if the power supply has failed.
Starting in 9.0R4 and above, the threshold has been increased to check the power supply for 5 minutes (300 seconds) and report only if power supply has failed five (5) consecutive times in a row.
