Compaq UPS Management.

By david.cheers ·
Does anyone know how I can test the condition of my Compaq UPS's to see which ones require swapping out. Other than shutting down and seeing which ones die first !!!!

Morning. If your using Compaq UPS systems, I guess you've probably got Lansafe and Failsafe for your servers. If this is the case, Landesk administrator can should be able to run a UPS self-test. You can either schedule the unit to run the test out of office hours (you never know what will happen), or if your feeling lucky, run the test online during the day. It only takes a couple of seconds. Phil

Hi I don't know if the software can test for the battery conditon I guess it can by monitoring the battery terminal voltage by switching to battery operation and checking the voltage. but even if it passes this it may not be able to tell you how long it will run before it fails. the best way is as you say run the pc/servers Ie in dos mode or in bios screen until ups switches off timing the run period while running off batteries.

Best of Luck

That UPS has a software interface available which connects through a serial port. There's a maintenance utility that could help you in that regard.
