    Shut Down - Email Notification

    Hiya people,

    Probably a simple one this but we have our Server 2008 R2 hooked up to an UPS 1500.. we have a lot of power cuts so obviously the use of UPS to shut the server down gracefully is needed. What i want is for the server as soon as the UPS kicks in and the server starts shutting down properly to notify myself via email of the shut down. This is important as my company needs emails over the weekend and if we have a power cut the person who arrives to turn the alarms off is completely computer illiterate so i would like to be notified so i can hook up to our ILO and boot it back up. So yer i literally just want to know if theres an easy way or a method at all of having trhe server email my personal email address upon shutdown of its current state.

    Thanks!!

    If it's an APC... Powerchute software.

    +1 for APC and powerchute. From experience, APC UPS are the best and well worth the money. Any decent UPS *should* come with software that is able to send an email alert though. Have you checked the software that came with your UPS?

    EDIT: Do i need to potentially add code to the command file in shutdown sequence of something?

    No, you don't need to do any coding. Its all configured in the Powerchute software.
    I haven't done it for a while, and it will vary slightly depending on the version of Powerchute you have, but there is help for the Business edition here:
