UPS and HP Mediasmart RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anybody pls tell me wether I need a serial or USB connection to connect a backup UPS to the HP Mediasmart server? Do I need to install any software, or will the built in 2003 server functionality handle the backup power management?

  • I have a newer APC UPS that has a USB connection.  I plugged it in to the EX470 and the server detected it no problem.  I haven't tried to let it go through a shutdown process but it recognizes the device and lets me configure it through the built-in software.
