APC UPS to initiate a graceful shut down of Simpivity

Can an APC UPS initiate a graceful shutdown of a Simplivity host as it does with a normal ESX host? I know that shutting down a Simplivity host gracefully, first requires the OVC to be shutdown using the Simplivity menu.    Thanks

Hi @JN3,

The only limitation here would be whether or not APC UPS has a CLI outlet to set up scripts to perform your required actions in the event of an outage. You can easily issue a safe simplivity shutdown 'svt-shutdown-safe' and allocate a period a time to allow the process to complete before moving forward with the ESXi host itself.

I hope this helps,

You can also try initiating the shutdown using the REST API but please be aware that only 3.7.6 and newer releases support this

You can find more information here: https://developer.hpe.com/platform/hpe-simplivity/whats-new

Possible commands to try:

POST shutdown_virtual_controller

POST cancel_virtual_controller_shutdown

GET virtual_controller_shutdown_status

 

I`m not very experienced in REST API so you`ll need to check it out. Hope this helps further!
