APC remote shutdown question

APC remote shutdown question

APC remote shutdown question


We currently have 1 smart UPS with 3 servers attached with only 1 attached by communication port for shutdown. Can anyone push me in the correct direction for available options? Apparently there is an Interface expander available with 2 additional ports - has anyone had experience with these? Apparently there is a script option that can be used to shutdown remote servers but don’t really know where to start with this so any pointers would be much appreciated (using Powerchute Business Edition).

Thanks in Advance!

RE: APC remote shutdown question

Do a search in this forum.  The same request has been asked at least twice (one by me) and there's a sample script you can use.  There's also part numbers that were posted for Port expander but it really depends on your UPS model.
