There seems to be no instructions, online or in the product documentation, for how to configure this setup.
I have a new APC BackUPS BX1500M unit, which includes a USB cable for connecting to a PC with their PowerChute software and apparently will shut-down an attached PC, when the power fails. There is no visible software on either APC’s or WD’s sites specific to either of these machines. In the ideal world, the UPS should be able to shut-down both the DL2100 and any attached PCs (but that might be asking too much). If it could control the DL2100 only, that at least would be reasonable.
Would the DL2100 just shut itself down if connected to the APC device via one of its USB ports? Is some special setting or utility required?
Anyone with insight into this, please share!
