Hi! Anyone, help me, please. I have vMA 5.5 with conneсtions to some servers, ESXi 5.5 Update 2, APC UPS`s together with servers, customized NUT - software for work with UPS. Purpose is shutdown virtual machines, when electricity is switched off, then UPS`s begin to work. I need a test script for my ESXI that can does it, like these.

ESX/ESXi APC/APCUPSD Host Shutdown VI Perl Toolkit Script ( -- [ ...

But there are old scripts for ESXi Version 3.5 or 4 and when I launch these, my Perl doesn`t work, giving an error.


Probably it`s a conflict between versions. I can`t update my Perl too, because SUSE find system files, which interfer to update (picture 2).


Do you know, where I can find shutdown script for my ESXi version? I couldn`t found it in the Internet.

Hey, possibly our new tool can help with that problem...

It´s not a script, but a standalone software, currently in the state of Beta-Testing. We use it exactly for this issue with our own clients.
The software won´t work with free VMWare versions, and it´s "special" concerning APC UPSs (they block with their own drivers the access to  the charge condition of the battery, so you have to restore original windows drivers, which is a very easy thing to do, but you can´t use APC software parallel to ours)

If you are interested, you can find a free full working version here:

Criticism, suggestions and any feedback are welcome!
