Datto Networking: Configuring and administering your managed power device



This article describes the process of managing your Datto Managed Power unit through the Datto Networking portal.


  • Datto MP60 


On April 16, 2019, Datto proactively updated our server certificates; MP60s not upgraded to firmware version 6.4.16 by this date will no longer check in, preventing device management, reporting, and automatic upgrades. See this article for important information.

Navigating to the Managed Power page

In the Network Manager Navigation menu, click Manage, then select Power from the expanded options.

C. Port Management

This section lets you perform the following management actions on a per-outlet basis:

  • Label: This setting allows you to apply a descriptive name to each outlet.
  • Power Enabled: Checking this box powers the selected outlet on. Unchecking the box will immediately power the outlet off.
  • Actions: If an outlet has its power enabled, the Power Cycle action will cycle the power for a specific outlet off and then back on. The Power Cycle action is unavailable if power to the outlet is disabled.
  • Power Cycle Delay: This setting lets you define (in seconds) when an outlet will power back on after being power cycled.
  • Ping Test Power Cycle: This setting automatically resets the power if the device determines it cannot reach a particular site or host. See the Ping Test Power Cycle section of this article for more information.
  • Scheduled Activity: This action lets you enable, disable, or power cycle one or more ports on the power device on a designated, recurring schedule. Click Add Action to save the action to the Currently Scheduled Actions queue.
  • Currently Scheduled Actions: This setting shows a list of scheduled actions created through the Scheduled Activity interface. Click the gear icon next to each action to remove it.
