I hope this is an easy one for someone!
We have a SmartUPS 5000 in our rack. At the moment, it looks like it's just been configured by our old IT support company to email them when it kicks in (not too useful).
I'd like to get it to shut down the servers we have here automatically on power interruption. I have a personal UPS at home, and I just install the software on the PC and after a few clicks, job done.
I understand this one works over the LAN. I can get access in to the web console however I can't work out what I need to do on the servers to get them to shut down once the UPS sends the command. I can't see any CD's about although I have registered on the APC site and have got some downloads. They all seem to want to look for serial or USB devices though.
Can anyone let me know what package I need to install to allow me to get this to work?
