PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

I am looking for the client software for the PowerTrust II-LR SNMP Card.
It is the SNMP Web Card for the UPS, HP PowerTrust II-LR (A1356A).
I have, HP UPS Manager II (B4153-13006) but this software does not work well or I don't know how to configure it.
I know that it is a very old machine but it is necessary to be able configured.

Can Somebody tell me where I can find it or how can I configure it to work with one HP-UX 11.0 Server?
HP tell me that is a obsolete product and no more.

Thanks.

Re: PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

Carlos, maybe not what you expected, but you need to use the software you already have.

Hope this helps!

Re: PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

Shalom,

What HP is telling you is that HP-UX 11.00 is out of support and they won't help you.

That is fine but does not mean you can't do the work.

If you have a software service contract, write a case to the response center and ask for access to the software archives.

Without a contract, you will need to search the net for the software. It may be available, it may not.

I don't speack for HP but they are under no obligation to help you. They might however if you work the system right.

Re: PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

To be a bit more clear, the product is A1359A PowerTrust II-LR SNMP/WEB card.

I remember the software product was called A1359A too.




I found the README deep inside my PC:




The PowerTrust II-LR UPS Shutdown Client V1.0 is a monitoring program for a
SNMP/WEB Card, which is monitoring a Hewlett Packard PowerTrust II-LR UPS.

This program is designed to monitor, provide messages, and perform an
unattended automatic shutdown of your UNIX operating system.

The following files have been placed in these locations:

/opt/powertrust2lr/README # This file
/opt/powertrust2lr/pt2lrstart # Compiled main monitor program
/opt/powertrust2lr/pt2lrstop # This script file shuts down the monitor
/opt/powertrust2lr/pt2lr.msg # This script file provides the status messages

To get a quick overview of the command line options required to run the SNMP
monitor, run '/opt/powertrust2lr/pt2lrstart' with no options and a usage list
will be displayed. For a more detailed explanation run
'/opt/powertrust2lr/pt2lrstart -h | more' for the online help.

To shutdown the client monitor:
# /opt/powertrust2lr/pt2lrstop

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

Hello Torsten

I suppose you spoke of the software HP UPS Manager II (B4153-13006).
I read in the forums that it was the correct software to work with the SNMP/WEB Card.
I found it and I bought it, but cannot recognize the card when I configure the program.

Do you know how can I do it?

In your second message, you tell me that I must to use the upgrade patch for my SNMP/WEB Card. I have done but the situation is the same.

Your third message is all I need.
I have seen in the forum that people talk about this software.
I think that it is what I need.
It is the client software for my HP-UX Server that will connect to SNMP/WEB Card and it will say It is prepared to work.
With this software I won't need the HP UPS Manager II.

I know it is in one depot file.
Do you know where I can find it?
I have long searching.

Will Have luck?

Another question too:
Do you know if I can do this installation in other form?
With a serial cable is impossible, this port is only for configure the card.
I can't connect UPS to Server and configure it with the tipical commands od HP-US, ups_mond, etc...

Have I reason?

PLEASE, HELP ME.
Thanks

Re: PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

Looong time ago I worked with this.

AFAIR the software was never online, only distributed on CD together with the card. Did you keep it? SInce the SNMP card was an upgrade, did you keep the original serial card?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: PowerTrust II UPS Client Software

I have this components:

HP Powertrust II-LR (A1356A) <-- UPS
HP Powertrust II-LR (A1357A) <-- Battery Module.
PowerTrust II-LR SNMP/WEB Card <-- Card
RS-232 Serial Cable (5064-6202) <-- Cable to configure the card through telnet or http.

There isn't manuals, CD's or another part.

We have not bought this UPS.
It was in our warehouse and now, we want to install it for use it with our HP-UX Server.

We have bought 8 batteries and HP UPS Manager II Software (B4153-13006) ((That I cannot make it work)) and now, we have to configure it all correctly.

Do you remember how did you configure this SCENARY OF THE DEVIL :) ??
