HP PowerTrust UPSs

Can anyone tell me if PowerTrust UPSs (new or old ones) will allow you to remotely shutdown the power to a peripheral that is attached to it.

For example, would it allow you to remotely powerdown and then powerup a router that is attached to it via one of the UPS input sockets.

Thanks in advance.

Re: HP PowerTrust UPSs

The question is, if this peripheral supports such a shutdown.

Normally, it is ok if it just shut off - no data to loose.

Hope this helps!

Yes, but can it be done remotely?

Re: HP PowerTrust UPSs

If the UPS goes on battery, the server will wait and finally shutdown. If the power of the UPS is finally off, all the peripherals will be off too. That's it. No need to shutdown anything other than the server(s).

Hope this helps!

Re: HP PowerTrust UPSs

Thanks - perhaps I didn't explain my requirement properly.

We have a router here that for one reason or another needs to be powered down and restarted from time to time. Sometimes, this is at the weekend or nightimes.

There are IP power switch devices that you can buy (such as the one linked below) that allow you to remotely control the power to peripherals. I am trying to establish if the HP PowerTrust UPSs have this functionality.

Re: HP PowerTrust UPSs

Powertrust family are (very) old UPS, most with an serial connector only.
There are daemons on the server (e.g. ups_mond) listening to events and force a shutdown - that's it.
Some newer models have different agents/daemons/software, but cannot switch off certain ports, so you need a device like linked in your own post (or shutdown your router by a script directly, if possible).

Hope this helps!
