Just recently purchased 2 new ups's. 1 x 2200 smart xl and a 3000 smart xl as well.
We have setup around 7 servers spread across both ups's to spread the load a while. Each ups has a network card in to control it and teh servers attached. The network card seems to shutdown the servers fine and we don't require the ups to restart each server on a power fault.
Our problem is all servers seem to stop and down quickly. However, the exchange server seems to take a while to shutdown. I think its because the domain controllers shutdown pretty rapid and the exchange needs the dc for something. Can anyone recommend a way to sequence when what starts to shutdown? The web interface and control on the apc network cards don't seem to offer anything.
