Regarding, UPS Setup for Drobo S:
1. What have you found to be the max. time (seconds or minutes) that the Drobo S will take, after turning off the its connected to pc, for the Drobo S to go into its Standby mode (after finishing its internal housekeeping) ?
I am setting up a UPS for the Drobo S and the pc connected to it and there are 2 ups software pgms that come with the ups. One ups software pgm will start the unattended pc shutdown, but then starts a count down where the power will cut off the ups after 2 minutes from initiating the unattended pc shutdown.
2. … So is 2 minutes enough for the windows xp or windows 7 pc to complete shutdown, as well as, the Drobo S go into standby within this same 2 minute timeframe ?
P.S. The other UPS software pgm that comes with the ups will allow me to set a separate cutoff timer for cutting off the power to the UPS battery outlets, after it completes the unattended shutdown of the pc.
