    ESXi 5.0 - Shutting down server via APC UPS

    kungpow Enthusiast

      Hi,

       

      I have 3 VMs on the esxi server and the esxi server is connected to an APC UPS. I have the usb port on the UPS connected to a win7 physical pc.

       

      When there's a power outage, the batch script that I created sends a command to the 3 VMs for shutdown. The VMs get shutdown but how do I get the esxi 5.0 host to shutdown as well?

       

      Also, if a user wants to physically shutdown the esxi 5.0 box because of power outage, can they do this as well or do I have to give them admin login for the esxi host console?

       

      Thanks
