Schneider XW+ 6848 to 2 single phase generators

On a Grid tied system I want to connect my two single phase 120v generators to the XW+ 6848's AC2 L1 and L2 inputs so I can to help the solar panels charge my SimpliPhi 48v batteries during extended power outages on cloudy days. I guess my first question is "does the generator have to be a split phase 240v type or can I use 2 120v generators instead?". I have done all the wiring and the Inverter sees 120v on both sides of AC2. The Inverter says Qualifying, not Qualify Good. I have not simulated a power outage and am not sure how to further test this. I am assuming that the generators only kick in (I manually start them) when the grid is down and the batteries need charging or the system needs help with heavy loads.
