UPS management module: shutdown options



I have an R5500 XR with a management card, and some details about controlled shutdown of attached servers through the network are unclear:


- Under Setup / Attached devices, when adding an attached device, there is an option called Estimated Time Required To / Shut Down Operating System. Does this setting have an effect on the order the attached servers are instructed to shut down? For example, if I have a server with a setting of 10 minutes, and another with 15 minutes, does tthe UPS instructs the latter server as the first one to shut down, and five minutes later the another one?

- How is the Shut Down Operating System and the Execute Command option related? If I have a setting for both of them, such as 5 and 3 minutes, the UPS, for example, instructs the server to run the script, waits 3 minutes, then instructs it to shut down?

- On the Setup / Shutdown Events page, various options can be found. Where can I find the detailed description of them, maybe a recommendation on which of them worth be used?


Thank you.

Hi There,


page no 73 of UPS management module user guide explains the shutdown configuration pretty well


Let me know if it does not answer your query.
