Is there some way, using the NMC, to coordinate the UPS self-test date/time among all devices at a site?
I would like to get the confirmation emails at one time, rather than sporadically.
That way I can keep track and know everything is working as I want it.
By default, the self-test is run each time the UPS is started and then every 14 days after that.
You could run a self-test on each system so they would be in sync. The drawback is that if the UPS is restarted, you must re-sync when the remainder run their test.
A solution is to set the test to never and set a reminder to run the test manually or run via SSH or SNMP scripting. Using SSH/CLI the command is UPS -s start.
The SNMP OID is in the screenshot below
