It would help to know what type of UPS the customer has, and if they have a Network Management Card in that UPS.
Also, what type of virtual infrastructure do they have? Are they using VMware or Hyper-V?
Are these standalone Hosts or are they part of a VMware HA/FT Cluster or Hyper-V Failover Cluster?
