I'm assuming that EVERYONE running ESX is using a battery backup. I'm assuming that nearly everyone is using an APC battery. I then made the assumption that there would be some sort of support within ESX for safely shutting the system down if running on battery and it's low, but I'm not seeing it. All I see in searching around are the typical twisted unix command line install instructions for installing various APC utilities directly on my ESX box, thus making me risk bringing the whole thing down.
Am I missing something? Is there some other way for us people who try to avoid unix to achieve the same results?
