Multiple Server Shutdown with Single UPS

Howdy all, I am hoping someone here can walk me through how this should work.

I have 12 servers in a Full rack and I recently purchased an APC 10K VA Smart UPS (with a network mgmt card) to add to the rack. I am rather lost on how to set it up to do a managed shutdown of all the servers in the rack when it loses power,

Would someone be kind enough to give me a rundown on this?

The APC should have come with client software for the nodes not directly connected to the UPS.  This client software accepts connections from the node that is connected to the UPS and initiates a shutdown when the master node detects a power outage via the UPS.

Would that be PowerChute Deluxe?

Yes, I believe so.

Sweet, I will set it up tomorrow and post how it goes
The network management card connects to the LAN and talks directly to all the servers (but they still need PowerChute on them setup to talk to the particular UPS).
