EMC AX150 UPS Battery
Posted on 2009-04-24
I recently purchased a EMC AX150 off of ebay. The unit is brand new was never used. I have set it up and everything however I do not have the APC Battery backup that you need in order to use the system. The system that i have has 2 controllers so from what I have read you need to have a UPS and attech the special cable that the AX150 came with to the UPS for verification etc.
I need to know which APC ups will work with this EMC SAN. The connector that came with the AX150 is a RJ-45 SERIAL end that goes into the EMC unit, then the other end is a SERIAL Female connector. I went to newegg and bestbuy to find a UPS to test out and all the new APC units have a female serial connector not a male connector. If i get a gender changer what are my probabilities that this will work? or is there anyone else out here that has an AX150 that can tell me which UPS to purchase. The one that was used with this SAN prior to it going EOL was an APC 1U 750VA unit which is now discontinued.
HELP! please :)
