What’s Happening With The Weather ???

Blahhh… Well what is happening with the weather at late ??? We have gone from nice mild days to scorching heat! (I really feel for the people interstate!) It’s currently 30 degrees centigrade here… but Melbourne & Adelaide are expecting temperatures in the high 30’s to low 40’s

I’d much rather be here…

SOLA-330 UPS Serial Cable Solved !!!

I received an email from Eaton today informing me of the pin-out used for this UPS !!! So now I have it all setup using NUT to control the server in the event of a power outage!

Wanted !!! Serial Pin-out for SOLA-330 UPS

As I have recently posted on this blog I have been given a SOLA-330 UPS. Unfortunately I do not have the serial cable to be able to setup my server to power down before the UPS runs out of battery (to then power back on when the mains returns!) So this is a plea to anybody that has a SOLA-330 model UPS that is either not using the serial cable or is prepared to loan one to me (so I can work out the Pin-Out) I would be very thankful !!!

New (old) UPS on Server!

I received a generous donation of a SOLA-330 UPS yesterday! (Thanks Matt)  this has been deployed and is now in-line with my Server,  DSL & Switch.  So now those pesky outages won’t cause unnecessary downtime!

Now I just need to get the pin-out for the serial interface to the UPS so I can configure the server to shutdown if the power is out for longer time than the UPS can provide!
