HP UPS Shutdown Order
Posted on 2011-10-02
I've got several servers all of which are powered by a HP RT3000 UPS with an integrated management module. I have the HP UPS Power Management Agent installed on each server and whenever we have a power event like a blip in the supply, everything keeps running and all the servers popup with a message saying "shutting down in 15 minutes". The power comes back a fraction of a second later and the shutdown is cancelled. All Good.
But, how do I control the order the servers shutdown in. On the UPS Management Module under attached devices I have my 4 servers (2 DCs, 1 Exchange, 1 File) and have shutdown OS times for each (2 mins for DCs, 5 mins for Exchange, 1 min for File). On the Power Faill screen they all are in Load Segment 1 and have a time of 15 mins, which is what comes up in a power event.
How though do I tell it to shutdown the Exchange server first after say 10mins, then 5 mins later shutdown the DCs 1 at a time with a minute gap? Can't see how to do this.
