[opensuse] apcupsd Configuration
Hi everyone

I have 3 servers. Let's call them A B and C
Server A has an APC BR1500GI connected via the APC RJ50 to USB cable.

I wish to set up apcupsd so that when the power goes off, Server A tells server B and C to shut down. Once they have shut down then server A should shut down.

So effectively Server A is the 'master' and B/C are 'slaves'

I understand this is possible but I have never had to do this before. Has anyone got a similar setup?

I also understand that it is possible to have the UPS shut down automatically after the apcupsd 'master' shuts off and then the UPS will turn back on automatically when the mains power is restored. If so this would be ideal because then I can just set the BIOS on the servers to turn on after power is connected and have everything come back on automatically too.
