I have installed APC powerchute network shutdown on 5 Dell 1955 blade servers running VMware ESX 3.0.1. I have also installed the windows version on all VM's hosted by those servers.
I have two questions:
1. How do you test it to make sure it will work during a power outage? Are we suppsed to just believe it?
2. Must you install the Windows version on the VM's or will VMware ESX server automatically shutdown the VM's when it receives the shutdown signal?
Thanks in advance.
