To test your Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) service configuration

1.

Simulate a power failure by disconnecting the power to the UPS device.

2.

Wait until the UPS battery reaches a low level, at which point system shutdown should occur.

3.

Restore power to the UPS device.

4.

Check the system log in Event Viewer to ensure that all actions were logged and that there were no errors.

 Caution

Save and close any open documents before performing system tests like this one.

Note

After you disconnect the power to the UPS device, the computer and peripherals connected to the UPS device should continue operating and a warning message should appear on the screen.

If the UPS service is configured to run a command file, ensure that the file executes in under 30 seconds. Failure to complete execution in 30 seconds jeopardizes the safe shutdown of your computer.
