APC UPS - Graceful Shutdown for AHV

I am currently running VMware but will be soon switching to AHV.

 

Will be purchasing a APC UPS with parchute software.

 

Does anyone know if this is compatible for AHV?

 

Does anyone out there with a UPS running AHV care to comment how they are managing the graceful shutdown of their Nodes and VMs in the event of power loss?

Hello,

 

I reached out to our alliances team to confirm what the current status on this is.

 

APC Powerchute is in dev stage right now for supporting graceful shutdown of AHV clusters ... we currently lack APIs for shutting down cluster so they are evaluating using script/cli to trigger a shutdown ... we are currently working with them on this.

Thanks for the response Brian.

 

With regards to the scripting side, did you say this is avaialble right now?

 

My reseller is looking into using this as workround but I am not if this is feasible at this stage.

Hello,

 

The scripting option is still work in progress and not available yet.
