APC Question

When connecting a smart UPS to the usb port on the EX4 is there any additional configuration for a graceful shutdown?


The Manual does not mention any other type of configuration.

I have the WD My Cloud EX4 16TB, Firmware Version : 1.02.08. 

I just purchased the APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 865W/1500VA 120V (BR1500G)  since it was a tested device to complement the My Cloud EX4 on the URL listed above.

Now, what do I do? Do I simply plug the UPS USB interface into the USB port of the BR1500G?  Either port?  What settings need to be made in the web interface for the EX4?  I need a clean shutdown when I get to 15 minutes left of battery power.

Please explain as fully as possible as other readers may be interested as well.

Thanks in advance!!

Sorry, in the above post I should have said plug the USB port of the UPS into the USB port of the EX4.

The unit will shut down when the UPS is at 10% power left.

Do I need to do anything other than plug the USB cable in?

No. If it shows you the percentage letf in the UI (which should be 100% normally) then you are good to go.
