Dell UPS Connectivity Questions Answered Here!
The options for all the Dell UPS units are USB (default, cable included), RS232 (not default, no cable included) & Network Management Card (optional H910P card). The USB option is very good for SMB type applications where the UPS is just shutting down a few servers.
The USB connection method relies on the Dell UPS Management Software to broadcast the UPS status across the LAN to other servers being protected by the UPS.
In the event of "low battery" the server connected to the UPS by USB broadcasts the status message to shut down to the other servers. Of course this relies on the host server not crashing in order to broadcast the message. So if this is not acceptable to the user they can use the H910P network card which allows an unlimited number of servers to communicate directly with the UPS over the LAN. It uses SNMP as it’s main communication protocol. The NMC also allows users to log into the UPS over a web browser and also to alarm to SNMP management tools such as DMC, OpenView, Tivoli etc.
The NMC is also a requirement if the customer is using an ESXi 4.0 system as the USB or RS232 will not work with it (a problem with the ESXi drivers to support USB/RS232).
