How do I monitor my Dell UPS on Linux?

If you have a Dell UPS, we recommend using the Dell UPS Management Software software provided and supported by Dell.


Before getting started, download and review the product overview, product support quick notes and Dell UPS Management Software documentation.

Download the software CD image from Dell’s website: DELL_MULTI-DEVICE_A05_R276438.exe

Follow Dell’s instructions for extracting the CD image:

1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled DELL_MULTI-DEVICE_A05_R276438.exe.
2.The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R276438. Write down this path so the executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3.The Self-Extractor window appears.
4.Click OK.
5.After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6.Click the Start button and then click Run.
7.Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R276438 in the Open textbox and then click OK.
8.Follow the on-screen installation instructions.

After extracting the CD image, burn the C:\dell\drivers\R276438\Dell_Software_A05.iso image file to CD using your favorite tool. Windows 7 has a built-in disc image burning tool, or you may use InfraRecorder. Regardless of which software you choose to use, make sure you burn the file as disc image, rather than simply copying the file to a data CD.

Once the CD has been inserted into your Linux server, launch the setup program:

cd /misc/cd/LinuxAMD64


Once the Dell UPS Management Software has been installed, you may access it via its GUI interface.
