Need help with Powerchute Network Shutdown

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?

I'm not entirely sure the APC software can bring the servers back up unless you were to use some sort of Wake on Lan system, which I used to use back in the old days of powerchute.

These days I look through BIOS/Firmware options of the server. They usually have an option of what to do when power is restored. Just set the server to always on
