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!

  1. GLad ya have it hooked up and going, will at least keep the power spikes from upsetting you..

    You got that cable going yet ?

    and should I dare say it the NUT configured…oooppps

    should have read – configured nut yet 🙂

  2. Well… Yes I’ve made up the cable from the circuit you gave me but it doesn’t seem to be working as expected (?) If I configure NUT for the recommended driver it doesn’t find the UPS, but if I use the generic ups driver 1 I get the status it’s online but it I use your recommended of No.6 it constantly attemps to reboot as it flags as a low battery state thus signalling to shut down! Anyway a little bit of tweaking and I’m sure it will come together!
