Any experience w/ PowerChute Plus event paging?

Any experience w/ PowerChute Plus event paging?

Post by Jim Lellma » Wed, 04 Sep 1996 04:00:00



We've installed PowerChute Plus V4.2, which does a great job managing our
APC UPS.  However, it cannot seem to page us when an unfortunate event
happens, such as a power fails.  We have captured the cu script, and it
doesn't look right.  The vendor has been contacted, and hopefully an answer
will be forthcoming.  In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone else out
there is successfully being paged by PowerChute Plus?

1. APC Powerchute Plus UPS software

A coworker shared the following with me, I'm having the same issue:

I have installed version Powerchute Plus 4.2.3 software on two AIX 4.2.1
boxes; v4.2.2 is installed on several other AIX machines.  The UPS and
computers communicate successfully; however, I am having problems with
xpowerchute.

Xpowerchute should allow me to monitor the UPS on other computers, do tests,
restart machines, etc.  However, when I start xpowerchute, it reports that it
can not find any powerchute servers; it does not even find my local machine.
I can alter the powerchute.ini file so that it does not use TCP; then,
xpowerchute will see my local machine but, of course, no others.

I have talked with APC about this.  We have installed new 10/100M NIC cards;
the original built in NIC ( ent0 ) is still there.  APC says that their
software is trying to communicate with this old NIC.  I have removed the
device ( rmdev -i ent0 -d ) but this did not help.

They also tell me that there should be some entries in /etc/services for ports
6547, 6548, and 6549; but, they have not yet provided just what those entries
should be.  Does anyone know, or have any suggestions for a fix?

Thanks in advance.
