win 2008 server , UPS shutdown

A stupid question, Where is the traditional UPS settings in Win2008 server? I have a APC smart Ups 700 connected via serial cable and would like to shutdown server cleanly during a blackout.

According to this article Win 2008 doesnt offer buildt in support for UPS anymore
http://www.ditii.com/2009/02/10/mangaing-ups-devices-with-windows-server-2008/

However, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 doesnt offer this built-in support anymore. Youll need to install the software from the UPS manufacturer to benefit from advanced shutdown behavior, calibrate the UPS device. The upside to this story is these software packages support UPS devices, connected using network connections, USB connections and through serial connections. These software packages also allow for a connected Windows servers to send alerts to other Windows servers to perform actions.

Cheers,
