kVA power load of Proliant G7 & Oracle T3/M4000 servers : single & dual power input

From the power meter on the MCB mounted the wall, when I power up one rack
that has 7 Proliant DL380 G7 servers, the power load increased by 1.2kVA for
the DC room.  Due to shortage of power points, only one input per server is
connected up with power cords.  Suppose I have enough power points & 
connect up both power inputs on each server, will this increase the kVA power
load or it will still be the same 1.2kVA total load for the that entire rack?

Does anyone has any estimation of kVA power load per Oracle Sparc T3 server
(populated with 4 SCSI HDDs & 32GB RAM& both power inputs connected) ?
These are new servers which will be coming in but I need to do some planning

Same question as Q2 above but for Oracle M4000 server
