Change default actions.

This was originally posted on APC forums on 9/3/2012


Hi.

I got help with my old issue with my silent istall but now I have a new one.
I want "Time On Battery Threshold Exceeded" to trigger a shutdown.
By default after my installation of powerchute its not.
What do I do to get this action to "Initiate Shutdown Sequence" by default on all my servers after installtion.
Its over 900 servers and i dont want to do it manually.

i double checked and i apologize. when i asked someone else, they misunderstood me. yes, that is saved in the m11.cfg file so yes, i don't see why you could not script it some how or with an MSI package if you stop the service, replace the file, and restart the service.

hello again,

i know you aren't going to like my answer but:

apparently the only thing you can push out with this silent install is events. that specific setting is stored on the UPS and i am gathering that even if PCBE goes offline for some reason, the UPS can still alarm and act upon it.

But m11.cfg stores the settings right?

I tried to use m11.cfg from a server with the correct settings on a server with other setting and by replacing that file and restarting the APC PBE Agent.
The result was that the setting were changed as i liked them to be, but that is still to much manual work.
Wouldnt it be possible to get that file included in the installation?

I can even have a MSI package created, all I want to know will it work?
