    A light on the X indicator means an internal fault has occurred. If its the Battery X indicator, it means replace battery.

    All APC UPSes bleep every so often and display a red LED too when the battery needs replacing. By installing the APC PowerChute 9.0.1 software, this will give you a clearer indication what's going on.

    This is compatible with 2008 R2 and have it running at many sites.

    Also, this is the user manual.

    The X light means there's an internal fault. There's a troubleshooting section in the manual which should help.

    Probably all of them as they are usually all the same age, best to replace the lot anyway. Some models do have an inline replacement feature but you would need to check your UPS manual to see if yours does and what the procedure is as given the voltage you need to be careful.

    Edit: page 13 of the manual someone posted earlier says they are hotswappable.

    RT should handle On-Line battery replacement.

    Inside the UPS, there is usually only one battery. It's heavy. They can be hot-swapped... although I did my last one when the server was shut down anyway for other reasons.

    Read through the documentation and it should tell you how to do it. It was straightforward with ours (also APC)

    In the 10000 RT, there are 4 cartridges, each containing a bunch of batteries, but you only work with the cartridges - and they weigh a tonne, and cost a fair packet too. The cartridges are about £650 each IIRC.

    You can't disconnect the batteries in a UPS to stop it beeping, it would just beep complaining it needs batteries then...

    If you yank the batteries it will just go to bypass and won't be doing anything. The test button might shut it up, ideally get another one quickly or get someone in who understands it to reconfigure it to beep less via the managment interface.

    I agree some of the bigger UPSes are definitely a two person job to replace the battery!

    Just a word of warning - the Smart UPS 10000 can be a pita - I had one at my last place which was over cooking its batteries (by a lot) - in the end it cooked itself and died one evening. The replacement then cooked a PDU!
