Simplivity and UPS (Eaton)

As anyone successfully setup their Simplivity nodes with a UPS? I currently have an Eaton UPS and I’m able to set the node in maintenance mode which moves and running vm’s to another node when UPS looses power and how to I get the OVC so shutdown? Any help is much appreciated.


Re: Simplivity and UPS (Eaton)

I seem to remember seeing Eaton had a technical paper on this at one time.Basically the issue is getting the UPS to send the correct commands to the OVC svt-shutdown-safe  & svt-shutdown-force to safely shutdown the OVC's.

I suggest you contact Eaton and see what documentation they have for configuring the UPS with simplivity,if you need more assistance after that just update the thread.

Hi @Steve Bishop 

I'm interested if you managed to find any additional information or had any success with this? I'm currently trying to configure the same setup - I'm working with Eaton on this but any information you may have would definitely help both me and Eaton.

kind regards
