Q: 

We have a small network environment that needs a new UPS strategy. Our main office has 4 physical servers and 4 ESX Hosts running vSphere 4 Enterprise. We were able to verify that a single 9355 is the correct size and have specified the Network card to be included, but I want to be sure we have the correct setup on shutdown software. The recommendations for IPP and IPM are a bit confusing. We need the software to shut down the ESX hosts as well as the physical servers in the event of a power outage without migrating servers. Shutting down the firewall and SAN (Dell Equallogic)would be nice too, but we have to power down the servers. Is this a job for IPP or IPM, and will the included 1-10 license cover us?
