APC UPS on Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2014-03-07
So, I have an APC SMT2200 connected to my Windows 2003 server via USB.
PowerChute Business installed, but cannot find any devices.
Successfully sent a test broadcast with the PowerChute software, so that that worked, at least.
It's recognized in Device Manager as an APC UPS, though.
I made a registry DWORD entry to add the UPS tab in Power Options.
In the UPS tab, I added an APC Smart-UPS on COM1.
Warning near the bottom says, "The UPS service is currently stopped."
Go to UPS services in services.msc, set it to Automatic, then try to Start it.
I get the error message, "Could not start the UPS service on Local Computer. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."
So, I'm stuck. I tried COM2, too.
Thanks in advance!
