    typo

    I think you wanted the d there :p

    Also is it possible they expect you to use a USB hub to plug in extra devices? With a couple of hubs you would be up to eight I suppose? Then again you'd expect them to mention that - it does not surprise me that it's either/or for serial or USB though.

    We noticed that when we proof read it, but I have to transfer it to a lab request form anyway, even tho I am in charge of the lab.

    Bah! Politics :eek:

    i've never used a UPS before, but is it possible to assign a batch file to be run at the loss of power, and maybe when power returns?

    if it is, all you'd have to do is shutdown -s -m \\servername -t 30 for all the servers, and if power comes back, shutdown -a -m \\servername

    The UPS should gracefully shutdown the servers, but I haven't booked the labtime to test it yet.
