I have a UPS on a server running VM ware with one live and 4 (cold site) servers.
The live server is running Active Directory, doing DNS, DHCP and DFS with 3 other remote servers.
I need to have the UPS shut down this server.
When the power fails can I just have it shut down the  guest server and then let the VM ware die or does it need to shut down both?

If you have a single UPS, and a single VMware ESXi server, you can configure ESXi, to Shutdown or Startup VMs.

So when you give the signal to the Host, it will instruct the VMs to shutdown, before the Host shutsdown.

You can also instruct the VMs to shutdown, and then just let ESXi fail. (a few options).
