netware 5 and powerchute

By pleggett ·
I am in control of the network for a small company I work for. We have Novell Netware 5. Which I know just enough about to keep the system going. So my problem is that the battery went out in the apc 1000 smartups so I replaced it with a new battery and now everytime I turn the server on the powerchute software shuts it down in 3 minutes saying it is on battery power which makes no since to me cause the battery was fully charged before I started it up. If anyone could please help me I would be forever grateful.

APC (www.apc.com) has a pretty good support set up, including the capability to talk with a tech during business hours of 8-5 EST. There is also a searchable knowledge base.

Your problem seems to possibly be related to one identified at http://tinyurl.com/2myl8 relating to Powerchute and baud settings. I suggest you take a look. Good luck.

Your problem is that someone has misconfigured the powerchute software that runs on novell and configures the smartups.
Go to the apc web site and get the powerchute plus software for your version of novell.
Then with the software, setup the parameters you want for the smartups.
Also run a test on your ups to make sure it is running properly. You can also get that information form the apc site.
That should take care of it.

Funny you mention it, I hd the same problem and could not get the powerchute problem resolved so I uninstalled it. I then downloaded the PowerAlert v 100 from the Tripplite website (the competitor) installed it, correctly recognized the APC unit and everything is OK. Good luck with it.
