Here is my setup :

I have 12 Servers varying in OS from NT4Server to 2003Server and in hardware from PCServer325 to Xseries server

All the Servers are plugged on UPS but only 6 of them are actually programmed for auto shutdown in case of a power failure, the others would fail and crash after the battery run dead

What I need to do is to find a software that would know there is a power failure and that could send a shutdown command on all the servers without the automatic shutdown.

Right now I use APC Powerchute Business Edition Std ...

Is there any software or combination of software that could execute a command prompt in case a power failure occurs ? if so what is the command line I have to execute to shut the other servers down ???
