Kevin,

PowerChute Business Edition in not compatible with BR1500Gi. Our recommendation is to purchase Smart-UPS for use with VMware ESXi. If that is not an option you can use APCUPSD with the Back-UPS. You will need to install VMware vMA and modify the instruction found on this VMware forum post to work with a Back-UPS via USB https://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-11482 You will also need to update the instructions to work with the latest version of VMware vMA.
