Subject: Should we put the system i on a UPS for the entire room?
Our network people are getting a quote on putting the server room on one
UPS which will feed the entire circuit going into the server room. This
includes our IBM 520 which is currently connected to a Powerware 5125 UPS
still under warranty. The room will not have a generator. From the
iSeries side of things, I don't see any advantage to going to a UPS that
will protect 20 other servers.
What precautions do the network guys need to take with respect to the IBM
520? That is, are there any unique UPS requirements for a 520 server
versus, let's say a Dell server?
Thanks in advance.
