UPS: Violates the InfraStruXure Manager global device battery-age threshold

This was originally posted on APC forums on 12/17/2013


I recently started getting this alert from my InfraStruxure Manager. I am on a very old system version 4.7

The UPS itself is over 9 years old, the threshold has been set to the default 60 months for some time and the alerts just started. If I change the Global Thresholds to 62 months or more the warning goes away. Is this particular threshold a level for any one of the batteries in the unit? ie, the oldest if finds? I have a Symmetra 20K system.

This global threshold would apply to all the devices the ISX Manager is monitoring. It then should tell you what device(s) violate the threshold. I think for this UPS, it's going by the last battery replacement date that is set in the Symmetra's management card. As far as I know, there is only one date you can set on the UPSs regardless of how many battery modules the device has. In general, all batteries in most UPSs should all be the same age and replaced at the same time.

If you log into the device, it sounds like the batteries haven't actually failed yet (and you could double check) but if they are this old, then it might be time to start budgeting for new batteries on the system because they could need replacement soon based on their age.
