Hi

Just a sanity check really.

We have just bought an APC Smart-UPS 2200VA XLI + extra Battery unit.

I remember when we did this for our servers we had to specify the amount of extra battery packs installed within Powerchute to adjust runtime etc.

However this lot is going directly onto a dumb PBX, just wanted to make sure it would still correctly drain the extra battery pack before cutting out, even though there is no Powerchute sofware installed.

The Powerchute software is there to shutdown attached servers smoothly before power goes out.  If you're just connecting it to a dumb PBX, there's no need to use Powerchute.  It doesn't affect the operation of extra batteries.
