We have several Servers running Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Core. These Serversare connected to APC 3000 UPS's. In order to support this configuration correctly,we need to install the PowerChutes software on the Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V CoreServers. As the Powerchute software seems to require a GUI to install, how do we installand configure Powerchute on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Core?
To install PowerChute navigate to the directory you have saved the installer to and type
For PowerChute Network Shutdown on Windows 64 bit setup-x64.exe
For PowerChute Network Shutdown on Windows 32 bit setup-x86.exe
For PowerChute Business Edition on Windows pcbesetup.exe
The installer will launch and you will complete the installation. Once the installation is completed from another system that has a web browser you will open the browser and type https://<IP address of the core system>:6547
Thanks for the quick reply. So to confirm this will work on HyperV Core Server, (which only has a command line and no GUI)?
Which version did you get? I can't find a way to install the server module, only the agent just as described in the attachment inside the msi. I can reach this version "PowerChute Business Edition v9.1.1 for Windows" marked as compatible on Hyper-V (only for the agent...) at "https://www.apc.com/us/en/tools/download/software_comp.cfm?sw_sku=SFPCBE911&id=125&swfam=125#". Anybody would help me please? I have to manage a SmartUps 2200.
The server and console modules are not compatible with Hyper-V server core. You can install the Agent and monitor from another Windows system running the server and console or monitor the agent via web interface from another system with a GUI.
To monitor the Agent form the web interface open a web browser and enter https://<system ip address>:6547
Today I have set up all the things and now the software is up and running. Thank you very much Bill for you quick and useful answer!
As an update, Version 18.104.22.1684 working fine on Hyper-V Server 2016 Core. Serial interface used. Viewed from client using https://yourserver IP:6547
