HP UPS Network Module - Trigger DHCP without reset



I wanted to know if there is a way to get the HP UPS Network Module to attempt a DHCP request without having to use the serial cable?

We have a large rollout coming up and the UPS typically comes up before the server hosting the DHCP scope does and it can then take many hours before the UPS tries for an IP address after failing the first time. I've tried unplugging and plugging in the Ethernet cable, but it seems the only reliable way is to reset the card, which can only really be done using the serial cable. There is no factory reset button on them like there used to be.


Does anyone know the answer to this?
