DL385G5, VMware ESXi, UPS

Given:
- a DL385 G5p server used to run VMware ESX
- an HP R3000 UPS connected to the server via serial port
can I configure ESX to manage the UPS and shutdown the Virtual Machines as soon as a power failure occurs?
Can I configure the same ESX server to force the shutdown of other ESX servers implemented on similar DL385 G5p server but not connected via serial port to the same UPS?
I presume I can obtain the requested result while installing HPPM Manmagement Server on the DL385 G5p server connected to the UPS and the HPPM agents on the other DL385 G5p server, but I want to be sure I can...
