Which UPS do you have?

You must find a UPS that is supported with HP-UX. The majority of UPS manufacturers only provide support for Windows. HP makes several compatible UP models shown in the previous reference. Other manufacturer's models may work if they provide supporting software.

hi,

you connect the ups to one of the serial ports on the MP M shaped cable 25pin-3x9pin connections.

one is local console
one is remote console
one is for UPS

once connected you should be able to see it in hpux.

If its easier you can configure the UPS through SAM
