[Linux-HA] Stonith with APCSmart UPS1000 +Network ManagementCard

Hello Dima,

can you explain how you get that card to shutdown the whole UPS or how to send the powerfail command to connected machines (are you
talking about the PowerChute agent?). Is any of that possible through a stonith plugin?

Thanks so much

IIRC we have the previous model of that network management card. It can shutdown the whole UPS, or it can send the powerfail signal
to connected machines. I'm pretty sure ours can't shut off an individual outlet.

You'll probably need their net-managed power strip for what you're trying to do.
