UPS Service Does Not Start : Error 2481
Posted on 2005-04-21
We recently installed a TrippLite UPS on a Windows 2000 Server. The software they provided did not work properly. However, when trying to use the built in support for battery backup, the UPS service will not start. It gives the following error: "Error 2481: The UPS service is not configured correctly." I can't seem to find any info on this error on Microsoft's site or elsewhere. The strange thing is the UPS service will not start on ANY of our computers. I was wondering if this could possibly be a Group Policy problem. Is there any Group Policy setting that would affect the UPS service?
