Even with the recommended PTF (MH00133 - superseded my MH00142) the UPS 
signal cable still doesn't work on the 520's I just installed.  Latest 
word from IBM is that another PTF is expected later in October or early 

PS - there is confusion over the correct port to connect the #1827 
Serial-UPS conversion cable goes on the bottom port (if you rack mount the 
520) or if you have the "deskside tower)" version, the two plugs are at 
the top left of the rear panel, and the cable goes on the one to the 
right.  Part of the confusion is that the system handbook mentions on the 
570 diagrams that the UPS cable goes on port T2, so if you assume that 
means the second port on the 520 you'd be wrong.
