We have ESXI 5.1 Hypervisor with two Servers running 2012. The two VMs are setup to gracefully shutdown when power is interrupted and not restored with in set time. We need to have the Hypervisor setup to gracefully shutdown when power is interrupted and not restored.

We do not have vCenter. "Dell Multi-UPS Management Console" is install on one server.

Can you please suggest the require steps to fullfil above requirement.

Are you using the FREE version? e.g. you have not paid any money for the license and just registered to get a free license.

Yes.. It is free version.

As of now we are trying below solution. Hope it's work.

1. Install "Dell Multi-UPS Management Console" on Windows server.
2. Dell ULNM application wiil be install on host through VIMA.
3. Dell ULNM configurations and actions can be managed centrally from Dell MUMC client

I'm afraid this will not work, with the FREE version because, in the free version there is no access to the Licensed APIs.

With the free version, you will have to create your own script, triggered by your UPS software to login to the ESXi server, and issue a shutdown.
