Hey All
I Think my title says most of it

I have two xServes in my school as well as a number of iMacs acting as servers and are all protected by a UPS. This problem is, I can only interface the UPS with a single sever. So in the case of a power-outage (which are becoming fairly frequent) only one server will shutdown gracefully automatically.

Is their a way to have the Server send out a shutdown signal across the network to the other servers in the case of a power outage? Currently I am using the energy saver preferences. The software the came with the UPS was not very reliable.

Many...., Mac OS X (10.5.8)
