UPS Software for Tru64 V5.1B

I have a DS25 Alpha Server running Tru64 V5.1B with two R3000 xr UPSs and 2 power units. I have tried using Lansafe to instigate a controlled shutdonw, but it will only manage 1 UPS. Is there any other UPS management software for this version of Unix, which will handle 2 UPSs supporting 1 server.

Hey Laura,

According to the R3000 questions and answers page:

"The HP R3000 XR UPS supports HP Power Management Software (CPM) version 1.8. In addition the HP R3000 XR UPS also supports the LanSafe III management software."

You might start by checking here:

But, when you get to the HP Power Manager page:

You get this:

Monitor, manage and control devices - Single UPS only

Are you running the latest supported version of LanSafe III?

Thanks for your reply.

I have looked at the HP pages you suggested. As far as I can tell the HP Power Management software doesn't run on Tru64.

I have tried 2 versions of Lansafe - V1.7 and V1.6. V1.6 will shut the processor, half of the peripherals and 1 of the UPSs down, but leaves the rest powered on. Looking at the documentation it doens't appear that either version will support 2 UPSs. I can re-load version V.17 if you think that will help.
