My knowledge of APC UPS is that the number in the name corresponds to the
rating of the UPS. If that is so. 450 is way to small for a server, and you
may be in a remain time left shutdown loop.

Hoping someone could give me some other areas to possible look


Office is a small 5 user office

Server hardware/software:

CPU: P4 3.2

Mainboard: MSI 865G Neo2-PLS
Ram: 2GB PC2700

Harddrive: 2x Seagate 200GB Mirrorred raid

OS: SBS 2003 / veritas bu exec sbe / symantec antivirus sbe


I have run some burn in test using both the as
well as Sandra running tests for 3-4 days continuously as well as having run
both the harddisks and ram through external tests


The server has run continuously fine for the last week and a half.


Server is hooked into a APC Powerstack 450 set to safely shut down the
server after 8 minutes of power outage.  Have tested this and it does safely
shut the server down


Saturday the 31st it shows an unexpected shutdown in the event log in the
System portion of it with no other information pertaining to what may have
caused this.  Is there anywhere I am missing that I could possible look to
see what may be causing this to happen?

Thanks in advance,
