Isn't it possible to connect a serial or USB device to a guest in VMWare
server? I've been able to with the free Server (formerly GSX I think).
Which version are you running?

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
