I have several ESXi hosts that are newly configured and controlled by vCenter and I have 2 x APC UPS RT 6000XL which connect to the hosts in the rack.
I need to set up these UPS to shutdown my vms within the ESXi hosts once a certain threshold has been reached so what I was hoping to find out is the best way to configure this.
Can I simply install PowerChute Network Shutdown onto the vCenter and control the shutdown of vms from there or is it better to use vMA for the ESXi hosts?
Another question relates to the 'Sync Control' feature in APC. If i configure these 2 UPS devices in a group will it mean that they load balance their battery power on a power outage?
