What is best way to have UPS shut down esxi /XPEnology?


Recommended Posts

I recently had a volume crash since I didn't configure my UPS to shutdown the server during a power outage.

 

I have a Cyberpower CP1500AVRLCD UPS (one USB output and one Serial output) and use an HP Microserver gen 8 running ESXi-7.0U3-18644231-standard (booting from SD card) using an SSD for the datastore, and the 4 HDD slots on raid 5 and DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 3.

 

I've just connected the UPS to the Server via usb, and have configured the USB port on the XPE VM as a passthrough, and configured DSM to shutdown after 10 seconds of power outage. So I guess my XPE is protected, but I have the following questions:

1. Is there better way to do this where everything shutdown?

2. I intend on creating a new server for backup, can I configure with just one USB cable for everything to shutdown (via software?) If so how?

 

Thanks!
