Regarding the mopUPS. I'm having a tough time figuring out how to gracefully shut down multiple computers when there is a power outage I have been researching RCCMD and mopNSA. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

There is a possibility to shutdown the computers from a network using a tool released on the Microsoft website. It's called PSShutdown and it can be used to shutdown multiple computers on a network in case of a power surge.

For example you can create a list with computers on a network in this form:

\\192.168.0.1
\\192.168.0.2
\\192.168.0.3

Save the file as pcs.txt then call the following command: psshutdown.exe -s -f -c -t 60 @pcs.txt

Download PSShutdown: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897541.aspx

What if I have 2 windows based computers and a UNIX based computer, would PSSShutdown still work?... All the research I've came up with i'd have to buy a software for this. I'm looking for something free or cheap.. I know that's asking a lot now a days
