I am implementing power outage plan, we have apc symmetra 80k and our  infrastructure as follow:
Server hardware is Dell , deferent models
Our service , Terminal services about 60 servers in blads ,
Storage we have netapp filers
we are using vpn to connect our sites , all service and storage located in our datacenter , my plan is when we have power outage , and remain for 10 mins , the vpn concentrator will be shut down , servers shutdown , and last is NetApp storage , we have powerchute installed in each server , so we can control server shutdown , I don't know i can I control the VPN concentrator 3000 , and other cisco device , I heard about snmp but I don't know how to do it , also I have a big problem whihc is when the power back up  , how can I boot our systems without being there ,or at least to be not fully manual.
I know it's long question but I appreciate any answer.

Hi,

Each Cisco device is SNMP enabled so you can monitor it. Please read the below article:

yes , I think the only way to do cisco is the snmp , but what about the back up , can we control how long it takes before the cisco device back up when the power restored from the UPS ,, ? also same question for the servers and NetApp filers , can I control this back up sequence ?

I have enough budget to do whatever I can , if CiscoWorks will help me to do that I will go for it, but what about the servers , how I control the time to back up after the UPS running and server should not back up unless the NetApp filers running , I have more than 70 servers , I can power on the NetApp filers manually of there is no way , but I don't want to do that for more than 70 servers .

I really don't know but is this mean there is no way to control power on the servers ?
