Hello et al,

We had a scare today when our server went down.  I came into the office to find the XS900 was beeping and the 'replace battery' and 'Overload' were on.  This unit and configuration has been running and unchanged for 2 years, so I am not very sure what the 'overload' is refering to.  

I disconnected and relocated the power plugs for the main server and associated perherials to 'wall outlet power' and got the server and system back on the air, but there is no UPS protecting them  :(

Now, I wanted to see the status of the UPS and brought it into my lab and plugged it into a wall outlet = when I plug the XS900 and press the power on button nothing happens.  I depressed the 'breaker' in the back and still nothing.  The XS 900 does not appear to be powering on.  I then plugged in a monitor to see if power sequence required a load = No change.

I need some help to isolate the problem with the XS900 and it looks like I will need to order a battery pack, so any best practices in that area would be nice as well.  I found replacment battery packs for half the cost of the APC units, but I have come to find out in life, you get what you pay for.
