Cisco Nexus 7000 redundant power modes

Have several Nexus 7010 with three 7.5KW double-PSUs each, need to run them on 2*16 Amp power leads for test. Currently they refuse to power up because I don't have enough power cables to feed all 6 of the C20 inputs simultaneously.

How do I change the power redundancy mode so they will boot with just two power cords connected? Web calculator says they should run on two cables since we have 230V supply, see attachments.

According to your power calculator looks like you need to run two power supplies in combined mode.

That would involve taking one PSU out since they have 3, however if I cable up with all 6 leads, then put it into full redundancy mode I can pull 4 out and it stays up. It will actually run on one PSU in combined mode (the Cisco power advisor doesn't list the 750W PSUs that I have at the top of the list)
