    Hi,

    how we have to configure the PowerChute to start den VM hosts and the several virtual machines again after power breakdown?

    Our infrastructure is:

    - 4 USV`s which management cards

    - 2 VM Hosts which should work redundant on 2 USV`s.

    For testing, we installed a further VM host with one virtual machine. PowerChute is running on an physically server.

    So, at the moment the PowerChute is configured that if we put the power cable out of the USV the VM host is shutting down the virtual machine and after that the server is shutting down himself too. The problem is, if we connect te cable into the USV again, the server is not starting.

    In the whole time, the USV runs on battery.

    Could anybody help us?

    Best regards,

    Alex

    Hi,

    1. What are the models of the UPS? 
    2. What model are the network management cards and what firmware is installed on them?
    3. Have you configured PowerChute to shutdown the UPS?
    4. Have you configured the BIOS of the computer to start when AC is restored?

    1. USV models:

    1 x Smart UPS SRT 2200

    1 x Smart-UPS X 2200

    2 x Smart UPS 1000

    2. UPS Network Management Card 2 (AP9630, AP9631, AP9635)

    The restarting problem is solved after shutting down the UPS.

    At the moment we have the problem if we configure 2 UPS to a group. Instant, after building a group the hosts going down... but why?

    Hi,

    What is listed in the PowerChute event log? It should indicate why the shutdown process is starting.
