We are looking to buy a UPS for our main server. Something that would
gracefully shut down the machine so that we dont risk data loss.
I have looked at the American Power Conversion offerings and dont
know if any comes with some software for Solaris.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Our server has 2 300 watt power
supplies and is running Solaris x86 2.5.1. with all recommended patches
If you get an APC SmartUPS with the Pro software it will indeed do this.
We bought a SmartUPS v/s and I wrote some custom software to do it for
us (and it required a special cable too)
