OX-STAT Photovoltaic cells blocked by aero sheilding when on Probodyne OKTO with SM-6A Service Module below it.
As you can see from the above image, the photovoltaic cells on the part right above the SM-6A are getting blocked by the unshrouded SM-6A. The image below shows that the shrouded SM-6A functions properly with the service module.
Next, to see if it was just a problem with the service module being on the vessel unshrouded, I moved the battery to the below position, as shown here:
Thanks for your time.

I can easily confirm. The problem occurs when we choose 'Shroud: off' in the VAB.
When I use 4 solar panels in symmetry, only 3 of the 4 are 'blocked by aero shielding'
If I choose 'Shroud: on' and then jettison the shroud, I avoid the problem.
