APC Powerchute Network Shutdown config example needed
Posted on 2006-07-06
Have APC SU3000 ups protecting a rack of Solaris, Linux, Netware servers. Have network card in ups, have installed APC Powerchute Network Shutdown (PCNS) 2.2.1. There is an event for on-battery and another for input power restored. Nothing else to indicate that the UPS has issued a shutdown or the ups battery low, etc. No config options for time to wait before taking action. I can handle all this in script, but once my script would start, there is no way to tell the PCNS to not order a shutdown of the UPS. With all the options available at the UPS and with Powerchute Business Edition, this seems pretty primitive. Am I missing the boat? What have others done? Thanks.
