OMSA continually reports power supply issues

OMSA is telling me both of my power supplies keep changing from 118
Volts input to 0 Volts input.  I've checked and rechecked the power
cords, reseated the power supplies, etc. but the logs still keep
coming in.  The iDRAC reports no issues with the power supplies.  Has
anyone else seen this?  Is this is software/firmware issue or some
real hardware issue?

According to iDRAC, the power supplies have firmware 08.05.00:

Individual Power Supply Elements

 		PS 1 		AC	1080  		870		Present		08.05.00	
		PS 2 		AC	1080  		870		Present		08.05.00
