SOLUTION
UPS + SNMP ADAPTER + RCCMD
How to protect computer/server connected to the UPS via SNMP Web Adapter ?
The GE SNMP/Web adapter is a UPS network card which can send RCCMD shutdown commands to
remote computer/servers when there is a UPS failure, this allow the servers to initiate a graceful
shutdown procedure of the operating systems and avoid data corruption.
The computer/server that requires to be gracefully switched OFF will have to install a light software
package which is named RCCMD.
How SNMP Web Adapter and RCCMD software combination work ?
The SNMP web adapter is installed in the UPS, it has been assigned with a valid IP address and
connected to the same network with the servers that need to be protected. Once the UPS goes on
failure the SNMP web adapter detects the power failure and based on the configuration assigned, sends
a shutdown signals to the target server that run RCCMD software.
The SNMP adapter contains a list of all server IP addresses which will receive the shutdown signal when
the UPS goes on failure.

SOLUTION
UPS + UPSMAN + RCCMD
How to protect computer/server with UPSMAN connected to the UPS via RS232/USB ?
UPSMAN is a complete protection software which integrates the protection module to switch OFF the
computer where it is installed and provides a graphical interface for the UPS monitoring. UPSMAN can
also act as master computer which can send RCCMD shutdown commands to remote computer/servers
when there is a UPS failure. This allow the servers to initiate a graceful shutdown procedure of the
operating systems and avoid data corruption. The computer/server that requires to be gracefully
switched OFF will have to install a light software package which is named RCCMD.
How UPSMAN Adapter and RCCMD software combination work ?
The UPS is connected to UPSMAN computer via RS232/USB which has been assigned with a valid IP
address and connected to the same network with the servers that need to be protected. Once the UPS
goes on failure UPSMAN detects the power failure and based on the configuration assigned, sends a
shutdown signals to the target server that run RCCMD software.
The RCCMD servers contain UPSMAN IP address from which they will receive the shutdown signal when
the UPS goes on failure.
UPSMAN sends RCCMD shutdown
command to the remote server, to
initiate the shutdown process.
Once the remote servers
acknowledged the RCCMD
shutdown command sent
by UPSMAN, initiate
shutdown procedure

RCCMD SOFTWARE ADVANTAGES
RCCMD is a “light“ application that runs in background and wait for shutdown commands sent by the
SNMP Web adapter or UPSMAN enabled pc. Computer resources as CPU and memory consumption
near to zero.
When a server is running RCCMD as data protection module, the network traffic generated is near to
zero because RCCMD works in listening mode, this means that the application runs in background and
expect a shutdown command to be sent by the SNMP adapter or UPSMAN.
RCCMD is a protection software called “native data protection“, this means that each operating system
that we protect has its RCCMD software package dedicated. The software is not written in java or other
common platform languages, but is written using the native language of the operating system.
Currently we protect more than 35 different operating systems.
The software supports the (SSL) Secure Sockets Layer communication method. SSL is a protocol
developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL uses a cryptographic
system to transmit the data.
