Software Question - Back-UPS CS 350 & Ativa AT-BU 1200

This was originally posted on APC forums on 8/17/2009


Hello all,
I am in need of software for monitoring the UPS and shutting down the PCs running Linux. Actually, the OSs are UBUNTU 9.10 (my desktop PC) and CentOS 5 (My very small Web Server - only 6 domains).
I see a choice for Linux in the Software Download pages for PowerChute Business Edition 8.0.1 - Single Node Agent.
Will this software version work for both CentOS (32 bit OS) and UBUNTU (64 bit OS)?
Is there a better choice?
Any advice or pointers are greatly appreciated...

Welcome to the APC Forum Mike.

If you are using our Back-UPS product line the software that comes with it is the PowerChute Personal Edition. Our PCPE software is designed to work with Microsoft based computers and Mac OS 10.3.9 up to 10.4.1.

Our PowerChute Business Edition is designed for higher level UPSs such as our Smart-UPS. PCBE as well call it, is tested to work with Red Hat and SuSE Linux. You can see the supported Operating System by clicking on this link --> [PCBE Compatibility Guide|http://www.apcmedia.com/salestools/ASTE-6Z5QEV_R10_EN.pdf]

you could look into apcupsd which is a third party software but has the ability to monitor these UPSs. i have also heard of NUT as well.

APC does not have software for use with the Back UPS family on Linux at this time.

i attached the users manual for apcupsd.
