I've got 2 APC Smart UPS 3000's, one of which has the management card (AP9617). They're both currently being used purely for battery backup, and since we've had repeated power issues in this building, I'd love to get some of the servers to shut down gracefully before the juice runs out.
The media is long gone, and documentation seems a bit sketchy on the APC site (I imagine this guy's been long discontinued). I'll see if I can break it down into some straightforward questions.
What options does the Net card give me? I grabbed the network shutdown software from the APC site, and it refuses to get past the first screen without a 2nd IP address. This is a bit baffling. (I'm able to log in and configure the card directly from its IP, but the options there seem focused entirely on notification)
Regarding the non-card unit, I'm assuming the RJ54 port labeled USB is only going to work with the cable provided (which was thankfully left in the bag). Am I correct in the disappointing assumption that I can use this to instruct exactly one server to shut down? Any software I should pick up to enable this? I believe 2008 server has already started disaplying a laptop-esque battery meter in the systray.
Any germane points I've overlooked are most welcome! I'm not afraid to study up anywhere you point me, but I seem to have started chasing my tail.
 I should mention that my primary goal is to get the 2 production virtual servers set to shut down. The DMZ virt server would be a stellar secondary goal. Anyone else I can connect is tertiary (but would still be lovely). Thanks in advance for any pointers!
