VMWare VCenter and DL380 and RT3000 G2 UPS

Hello,

 

We have 3 Servers (DL380) running VMWare ESXi 5.5 in a cluster and vCenter on a seperate physical host.

 

Next to that we have 3 HP UPS's (RT3000 G2) which are connected to those 3 Servers. Each server has a power supply connected to 2 of the UPS's.

The Physical host (vCenter) is also connected to 2 of the UPS's.

I connect the 3 UPS's to the vCenter host by UPS, but the HP Power Protector Soft only allows 1 UPS to be attached.

 

What would be the best setup to shutdown my servers (and virtual machines) in case of a power failure?

 

On the internet I read different options, but most of them are using only 1 UPS.

 

Can someone please clarrify this to me?

 

Best regards.

Kurt
