Turning Linux Server Off remotely
Posted on 2006-11-02
My company purchased a nobreak that have the ability to turn off the computer when the batery charge gets critical. This job is done using the Nobreak's software (Upsilon 2000), that is installed on Windows server.
My enviroment have 6 servers: 1 Windows 2003 Server and 5 SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.
The Nobreak's software have the ability to call an application when it starts the shutdown sequence. So, my ideia is to develop an small aplication that will connect to the Linux Serves and inform them to start a shutdown operation but I have no ideia of how this could be implemented on my Linux servers...
Does anybody have any advice?
Thanks a lot.
