PowerTrust L class box

I have two L3000 boxes in a rack serviced by a PowerTrust UPS. Only one L3000 is physically connected via serial cable to the UPS as there is only one port for such communication (as far as I can tell).

Question:
How can I get the ups_mond to "shutdown -h" both machines since I can only physically connect the UPS to one box?

Hi,
I don't think it's possible. There is optional management interface which connects via network and works based on SNMP. I am not sure your Powertrust ups support these interface.

Hi Mark

You need to have following accessory in Power Trust UPS to monitor multiple servers

PowerTrust II LR SNMP/WEB Card (A1359A)

Re: PowerTrust L class box

Thanks everyone .. I've now got the HP UPS Manager II manual, and will look into that serial card upgrade to my PowerTrust to figure out the best solution. Thanks again, and this forum sure helps every time.
