Heads up about APC software and Servers stuck on applying computer settings
In order for PowerChute Business Edition to remain functional, users must
upgrade to any version of 7.x. Due to expiration of the Sun Java Runtime
Environment certificate, versions 6.x of PowerChute Business Edition will
cease to operate normally as of July 27, 2005. Failure to upgrade will
result in PowerChute Business Edition no longer providing monitoring and
graceful shutdown of your system.

Just returned from a client that was having POP collector issues
yesterday - and client had decided to reboot the server in attempt to
clear it (Actual problem is the POP Mail hosting service is currently
The server would restart, get to logon screen, console logon made but
sits at "applying user settings" for WAY TO LONG. Little appears to
work on workstations in relation to Internet access, etc. Client
interrupted the server logon several times and forced reboots several
times (may be part of the issue's origin?)
Finally rebooted one last time last evening and left the logon process
going overnight - had the server console this AM - but no Internet
Remote connection externally worked but strangely there was no option to
connect/logon to the server in the RWW screen. Workstations were
available to connect to.
Go onsite. TS service would not start. RPC was started. Found 2 APC
services sitting at "Starting" - killed those 2 services and Internet
connection began to work, TS service started on its own.
Thought it may be related to the APC software JAVA certificate timeout -
PowerChute Business Edition - Customers Using 6.x Must Upgrade to 7.x
due to Java Runtime Environment expiration
SO I removed the APC software and rebooted. Reboot AND logon only took
5 minutes now! All Internet activity fine (except POP - of course).
Downloaded and installed new APC sw and all is fine.
