SMT1500I and Buffalo Terastation Shutdown

This was originally posted on APC forums on 11/5/2012


I currently have a SUA1500I with a APC9607 Expander Card installed. This is connected to two Buffalo Terastations and use to shut them down if there is a power failure.

I am thinking of upgrading to a SMT1500I. The APC9607 will not fit this new UPS. All the recommendations appear to be to use a network card (AP9620) to shut down the PC connected.

My question is can the network shutdown option be used for the Terastations? Has anyone successfully done this?

does the buffalo terastation rely on "simple" signaling with a DB-9 cable or what does it look for? if i know more about how the terastation operations in relation to a UPS, we can see if there is another option i.e. USB.

At the moment is uses a DB9 cable from the expansion card.

The user manual gives the folling instructions:

UPS Settings

An UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) can protect the TeraStation from power outages and brownouts. To use the
TeraStation with a UPS, proceed as follows:

1 Plug the power cable of the UPS to a wall socket.
2 Connect the AC cable of the TeraStation to the UPS.
3 Connect the UPS to the TeraStation with a USB or serial connection.
4 Turn on the UPS, then the TeraStation.
5 In the Web Admin interface, click [System] - [Power Management] - [UPS Settings].
6 Click [Modify Settings].

1 Configure the desired settings.
If your TeraStation is connected directly to the UPS, select [synchronize
with UPS connected to this TeraStation]. To have the UPS shut down
multiple TeraStations on the same network, select [synchronize with
UPS connected to other TeraStation on the network] and enter the IP
address of the TeraStation that is connected directly to the UPS in the
field below.
2 Click [Save].


Notes:
• If the UPS has shut down the TeraStation because of a power outage, make sure that power has been restored before
restarting the TeraStation. If the TeraStation is restarted after a shutdown, but power is not available, then the UPS
will not shut down the TeraStation a second time even if its battery is running low.
• If the TeraStation is set to use UPS recovery, then the UPS will restart the TeraStation when normal power is restored.

do you need to shutdown anything else with this UPS? if not, i would certainly try the USB cable option (which a USB cable ships with this UPS) and see if it works before I pursue any other option.
