Thanks and well wishes to:
The UPS daemon that ships with HP-UX (ups_mond) is largely useless unless
you actually have a genuine HP PowerTrust UPS (Manufactured by Sola). My
quest does have a happy ending, however.
Although a 750 VA unit would have been sufficient, I like some headroom. I
obtained a reconditioned APC Smart-UPS
Power Services <http://www.gruberpower.com/>. It shipped with new
batteries, fully tested, and guaranteed for a year. The list on a new
SUA1500 is $559. Street prices are in the $400's. I got my reconditioned
unit for $179.
The Smart-UPS series has a DB9 serial port in addition to USB. With the
serial cable that is due in today, I can connect the SUA1500 to Serial 2 on
the C3700. (Serial 1 is the console.) The cable -- which has a proprietary
pin-out -- is OEM p/n 940-0024 (APC=$27, eBay=$15).
The final piece to the puzzle is PowerChute for HP-UX. Yes, it did exist.
eBay=$20) That's next.

I'm looking for a reasonably priced UPS (Battery Backup) for my C3700 -- a
consumer UPS that still has a serial port with signaling that is compatible
with the HP-UX upsd daemon.
Right now, I've got an APC Back-UPS 350 ES sitting between the C3700 and
commercial power. That will protect against sags, spikes, and very brief
outages, but it has precious little runtime and no means of signaling a
shutdown. This particular APC unit only has a USB interface which is
essentially useless. Although the C3700 has two USB ports, I believe HP-UX
will only recognize keyboards and mice via USB.
Does anyone have a recommendation?
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here
in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be
treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to
discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or
origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an
American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance
here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an
American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We
have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ...
and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the
