Adding an ATS
Intelligent ATSs will be autodiscovered through power autodiscovery in Device42. You will now be able to see incoming PDU connections to ATSs and visualize your whole power chain from UPS to PDU to ATS to device.
Creating an ATS
You can create an ATS in Device42 by going to Datacenter>Power Units>Power Units. On the Power Units detail page, select “Add Power Unit” from the top right. In the new screen, name your ATS and select ATS as power unit type.
Connecting ATSs to PDUs
To connect an ATS to a PDU you do so from the PDU page. Browse to the PDU you would like to connect to the ATS and in edit mode change the “Content Type” of the port you are connecting to “Power Unit” and then using the Object ID magnifying glass, select the ATS you would like to connect to the PDU.
Once you click save the connection will be displayed as seen below
Viewing Power Connections
After the connections have been made from devices to the ATS and from the PDUs to the ATS you will now be able to see power connectivity maps allowing you to visualize these connections. To do so simply navigate to an ATS and click the “Connections” link in the top right.
Mapping ATSs to a Device
If you want to track more details about a ATS, e.g.: serial #, asset #, IP address, purchase information, life cycle management - ATSs can be mapped to a device.
- Create a Device with Type = Other (see image above) - it is recommended (but not required) to give the device the same name as the ATS it will be mapped to.
- Select Device Subtype - ATS (see image above) - hardware is not needed. All other fields are optional.
- Save the new device.
- Edit the ATS and with the Device Mapping option (see image below), choose the device (as created in steps 1-3).
- Save the changes to the ATS.
