I've got 4 FBSD 4.9 servers, 1 Win2k server, 1 FBSD
5.1 server running on a apc Smart-UPS 1400XL w/extra
battery(all rack mount) with APCUPSD 3.8.6. One of the
FBSD 4.9 servers is the master.
I've got two W2k servers running on a Smart-UPS 1000XL
w/extra batter. Both running APCUPSD 3.8.6. One
master, the other slave.
And there is another FBSD 4.9 server running on a
Smart-UPS 620 running APCUPSD 3.8.6 as a standalone.
The FBSD master on 1400xl collects info from the
standalone and W2K master for the web based network
All host send email to root when there is an
event(except tests). The mail is sent by the
scripts(changeme, commfailure, commok, mainsback, and
onbattery) called from apccontrol in the
3.8.6 works like a charm, except for the zombie
process that happens on the FBSD master and standalone
which doesn't seemed to cause any problems.
