    APC UPS Battery Self-Test Alert Help Needed....

    Butch Snyder

      Hi all,

       

      We run a shop with basically two UPS vendors; APC and Leibert.  The APC's only alert via syslog and the Leiberts use only traps.  We receive email alerts, via syslog, telling us that a particular UPS has started a self test.  We get thses only for the APC UPS'.  Here's a copy of an aler thread.

       

        1. 2/25/2013 10:05 AM :   Feb 25 10:05:31 x.x.x.x UPS: Started a self-test. 0x0137
        2. 2/25/2013 10:05 AM :   Feb 25 10:05:31 x.x.x.x UPS: Started a self-test. 0x0137
        3. 2/25/2013 10:05 AM :   Feb 25 10:05:47 x.x.x.x UPS: Passed a self-test. 0x0105
        4. 2/25/2013 10:05 AM :   Feb 25 10:05:47 x.x.x.x UPS: Passed a self-test. 0x0105

       

      These are four separate emails that come in.  A few questions regarding these:

       

      • Why don't I receive a "UPS: Failed a self-test" alert?  We have had some UPS' with batteries that need to be replaced.
      • I have looked in my server and cannot find where these particular alerts have been created/configured.

       

      Thanks, in advance.
