The goal is to manage the UPS via vSphere vMA 6.5, which you due to the kernel used in the version of SUSE you cannot use USB so we are going to use the serial to rj45 cable. I do not see this particular model listed in the KB article found here https://www.apc.com/us/en/faqs/index?page=content&id=FA315835. Is this UPS too old? Is this a Type-A or Type-B UPS model? Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
We do not support Back-UPS with VMware ESXi. If you want to use the Back-UPS with VMware ESXi I suggest you look at APCUPSD. They may have a solution.
