George, If you have a 270, then you have all of the software necessary to power the system down prior to UPS failure. The only missing component might be a cable from your UPS to the AS/400. Properly configured with a UPS monitoring program and the appropriate system values, you will have a program that executes at the appropriate time. See the link below for more details. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/info/rzahr/rzahrovrvwco .htm Once you have the program executing, you can send out an email message, wait a few seconds, then power the machine down properly.
