I have about 100 of those AP8868 PDU and only couple of those the display screen is not frozen and able to access to the Web OS / or software upgrade. ( less then 10 are working correctly) rest of the 90 PDU is Screen frozen and also unable to log in to Web GUI and software upgrade.
Here what i tried:
Opt1) SSH, do a .exe Software update/ FTP software upgrade and none of it able to fix the issue.
Opt2) using the PDU reset button to try to do a hard reset and still not work. ( press reset once hold for a sec, then press again for 10 Sec and when the Orange blink press again ) and also not fixing anything .
What will be next option or suggestion ? un-plug from the power source completely ?
Please help ... very disappointed with it ...
By "frozen", is the display lit up but not displaying any information? It's possible the PDU's are affected by the issue outlined here: https://www.apc.com/us/en/faqs/FA237061/
I'd recommend looking at that and attempting a firmware upgrade over either serial, or USB (USB instructions here: https://www.apc.com/us/en/faqs/FA156047/)
