As the threat of windstorms presents itself, I started to double check 
our APC systems for the small number of servers we have.  This summer I 
began testing VMware Server running a few Windows 2003 Guests.  
Unfortunately the APC Power Chute agents can't see the UPS's because I 
cannot physically connect the guest via a USB or serial cable.  Has 
anyone found a good solution for this type of situation? I'd also be 
interested what other people are doing for battery backup solutions in a 
small environment.
