COMPAQ t2400h UPS PROBLEMS

We have one of these hooked up to our ML570 and the serial cable got busted. Couldn't find a replacement anywhere so used the pinout diagram for the part shown on an old thread for 1500's (same part no) to make a new cable. Now the serial comms light is green on the UPS, but the power manager (LanSafe 4) doesn't recognise the UPS and comms link reports as off after it reports as on when initially negotiating with the UPS. The cable tests fine as do the pins. Anyone any ideas what we're doing wrong? (We're running SBS 2003).

Hi Richard,

Yes the T2400h should have the same serial cable pinout as the T1500h or R1500h. The only difference was that tower models generally had a 6 foot cable and the rack versions had a 12 foot cable.

Check the wiring again with the pdf file I have attached (End section for pinouts).

I hope this helps.
