Shutdown Order

Hi All

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.



RE: Shutdown Order

You may have your batch file stop the exchange services first.
