APC PowerChute - Shutdown on High Temp (Script?)
We currently have 8 servers connected to 3 x UPS`s. Each UPS has a management card.
Our air-con unit has failed (again). This time I was given money to install a system that would shutdown all the servers if the temp ever got high enough again....
So.. I replaced one of the older management cards with a new AP9631 that also has the environmental monitoring and comes with a temp probe.
I have spoken to APC and they are telling me that as I have 3 APCs all connected to different servers, that I would have to buy another 2 x AP9631 cards for the other 2 APCs.
Does anyone know a way that instead of spending MORE MONEY, I could use the "Run Command" option in Powerchute to tell the other servers on the other APCs to start shutting down?
APC have said I cant do this but, couldnt I just setup all the powerchute agents on all servers to talk to the one ups with the management card?
