How old is your UPS? Even though it's probably under maintenance we find
out that you should really replace all the batteries every 3 years or so.
Doing them as they fail may be under maintenance may be a solution but is
highly disruptive versus changing them all at once. Just had one battery
fail. Sign they are getting long in the tooth. However we're abandoning
this building in a few months. I get the kickback on taking the used
batteries to recycling.

All,

Our IBM i is in the cloud, so the UPS we have is now way oversized.
Liebert Nfinity installed in 2004. It's had batteries replaced, etc and
served us well during the 2-hour power outage yesterday. But seriously, we
don't need 180 minutes run time. :) I have a quote for a replacement.

I got to thinking about something yesterday. Even without power, if we had
a way for our laser printer(s) to work, we could have continued on our
merry way, though somewhat in the dark.

Laser printers should not/cannot be placed on a UPS due to power draw.
What about a portable generator? With the assurance that we have clean
power coming out of it. We wouldn't need EVERY laser printer running, just
one of them.

Anybody ever do this?

Thanks.
