I've recently installed a new Poweredge 4600 server at my organization. This server has two power inlets- one that is active all the time, and another which is switched to if the first supply fails. I've connected an APC smart-ups to each of the power inlets of the server. My question is in regards to using Powerchute business edition to execute a graceful shutdown of the server when both UPSes are exhausted. Each UPS is connected to the server with a serial connection. How can I configure Powerchute to shut down the server only after BOTH UPSes are about ready to quit? So far I have only been able to get Powerchute to recognize one of the UPSes, the one attached to the first serial port of the server. Thanks in advance!
