Need help with Powerchute Network Shutdown
Posted on 2006-07-24
I have already called APC on this, and they do not know what the problem is...
When the building loses power, the Powerchute will shut down the Servers but will not bring them back up when power is restored.
We have 3 APC Smart-UPS 3000 RM cross-connected to 10 Servers (2000 & 2003). I have Powerchute Network Shutdown 2.2.1 installed on all the Servers and the IP addresses of the corresponding UPSs added in the software.
In the UPS Network Management Card under PowerChute, I have maximum shutdown time set to 5 minutes and on-battery shutdown behavior set to reboot on line return.
Other than adding IPs, DNS and email addresses for notification, I have left everything on defaults.
Isn't the UPS software supposed to bring the Servers back up?
