Ah... great, well sort of. At least now I know it could be a serial cable wiring issue. Still, I can't understand why the serial cable I'm using on 1 APC model works fine but if I use that same cable on another (identical) APC then it shuts down immediately. (I double-checked model name and serial numbers behind the UPS devices)
Anyway, I'll try to get the official serial cables just to rule out wiring issues.

Thanks for helping.
